This was my first AG so I used a little more grain 10 pounds of 2 row and 1.2 pound Cristal, hops as per your schedule. Beer was ready to drink a moth ago but it was way too fruity with a strong grapefruit note. Even my wife tasted it, otherwise she hates beer. But after a wile (maybe 3 weeks) everything settled and mellowed into very smooth very balanced English style ale with only a hint of citrus aftertaste. This is maybe my best beer ever. Not butter, everyone can drink it. One important notice: it should not be served cold, just a little under room temp, otherwise it looses its taste and character.
Glad to hear it came out ok. Thats an interesting take on the serving temp for this beer, i am usually fine with beers being served just below room temp but have not tried this one that wat. What yeast did you use?

Cheers!

Hmm, I based this recipe on Amarillo because I had just bought 2 pounds of it at the time. It's a pretty simple blonde so you could really use any hop you have access to. I bet summit or cascade would be good. You could get all crazy and try something earthy like Fuggles and just change the schedule around.

Give something new a whirl and let us know.

Cheers!

Yes I would say so. The pellets and dust are probably the same utilization wise.

US05 would be great in this beer. It's a pretty clean yeast.

Waaaayy off topic..... How do the All Blacks look this year? Been my favorite national side for as long as I've known Rugby. Unfortunately here in the US it's hard to catch games on t.v.
