apparently its not yours either... we're both right: US-05 and WLP001 are both Chico, and they can produce different beers

awrite, i'm done with this since we've descended into insults. a few more posts and we'll have a hitler reference in here.

yeah, sorry about that... here, i'll try to be useful:

i like your malt bill.

i would consider boosting the 5 and 0 min additions to 0.75 or even 1 oz. i have a pound of zythos and haven't tried it yet, but several folks have said that they aren't particularly intense.

should be a good beer.
