I brewed an extract beer a while back using honey and rye and it was pretty tasty...well, been brewing AG for about a year now, so thought I'd convert this old solid recipe to AG...brewed it mid-february or so...I'm drinking it right now...and I have to say...this tastes EXACTLY like Hopslam...not quite the same color, but everything else matches to a tee... it's crystal clear, dry and tastes tropical as can be and I have to think this is the best beer I've made to date...

just too excited not to post this...
