Ha, the bottom of the fermenter with all the yeast, break, and dry hop smelled like an orange rind. Damn i hope this comes through in the final product.

Regarding the crystal - WLP007 is a badass at took it to 1.015. It still seemed dry to me. Columbus was what I had on hand to bitter with. I would rather have used magnum or warrior, but thats what I had. Keep us posted.

It's been two weeks since I bottled this one, figured I would fridge it and try it out.

Pretty good, nice soft malt character and good crisp clean bitterness. I would eliminate the 45 minute and add more from 20-5 minute tho. It's lacking in the hop flavor department. Great citrus smell on the nose. I would like to cold condition this one for a few weeks then I'll post again, I'm sure it will change even more.

Well all opinions have been assessed an the major consensus is great! Most people love the well rounded hop bitterness and the citrus edge, crisp and clean, only complain was a grassy note, probably from the use of old hops. Everyone loved the malt balance, perfect sweetness with malty body, bready, soft and smooth. I'll be making a similar beer using the hop bursting technique, stay tuned.

Hmmmm. I have four ounces of ahtanum pellets in the freezer. I was going to make something like a Stone APA, but you've got me rethinking that.

I think those hops are going to be moved to the front of the freezer, while I think about my plans. Thanks for sharing the photos!

The fresher the better, as with any hops, is best. I kind of kick myself for buying up so many packs, I should have known they wouldn't be top quality. But if I got good results with less than perfect ingredients I'm sure the results will be phenomenal with fresher ones.
