From my experience 420 has slight fruit/flowery undertones that seem to come from the yeast more than anything else and I think the White Labs Burton's will be interesting and may replicate that.
Hey... Inquiring minds want to know.. how did it turn out? I would LOVE to do this with extract with steeping grains.

Come on... spill the grains, I mean beans.

I actually just kegged it Sunday. I had enough co2 to purge it but I'm out so I can't carb it. I'll let you know once I crack it open, hopefully next week.

Can I get the name of the kit from alabrew? I'd like to start with that kit and steeping grains since I'm a newbie and I do love 420. I hope the alabrew kit is a 5 galllon version as well.

Hey guys,

I'm a brewer at SweetWater. Cloning beers is what got me interested in making this my profession. Isn't it fun? Some of you are closer to our recipe than others! I'm glad to see you all like our beer enough to try to replicate it. Keep up the good work!

I'm actually in the brew house right now brewing a 50 bbl batch of HG420. smells great!
