Verdict is that this turned out delicious.

On the pour carbonation is solid with 2 finger bright white head. Retention is good and there's a nice amount of lacing. The color is golden yellow and the aroma is nice and bold with a nice grapefruit scent from the belma hops. Since I dry hopped, you get an full aroma but a nice firm hop flavor without being overly bitter. This beer is probably a bit more sweet than most before, but I wouldn't think by too much - its not cloyingly sweet. Honey comes through both in aroma and on the finish after swallowing. Breathe a nice breath while drinking and it comes out front more noticeably.

Once I brew a few more styles that I've been meaning to try I'll be making this again, probably all grain though. I can see this pairing well at warm summer bbq's along side the pool. A great session beer.

Sounds like it came out really nice! Congrats. I want to know where I can get a bottling assistant though!

Why are you siphoning when you have a ball valve kettle?

I wondered that too, but figured I better leave that alone.

I have run into issues were their extract didn't ferment enough, leaving too much unfermented sugars. I quickly moved to All Grain.

Although I was ignorant at the time of choosing it, I'll have to admit you're right. I get so many compliments on that first brew. The only thing I did differently was dry hop with belma and got nice praise from a bjcp grandmaster. definitely good for the ego.

I think I'm going to start reading the all grain forums. Every time someone has a problem I'm going to state "that's why I use extract".

It seems like every thread posted in the extract forum has someone pushing all grain.

Maybe there are people out there that can make beer with extract that is on par with all grain?
