This is one of the most refreshing brews I've made, it makes you keep wanting more...luckily it's session-strength. The Carapils gives it nice head retention, and there's a touch of maltiness from the Aromatic...while the small, late Amarillo additions offer up a touch of lemony citrus which couldn't be a more perfect complement for this style. This can also be done with Nottingham or S-05 or Windsor...etc., etc., I just happened to have a sachet of the S-33 Edme that I wanted to try out. Ferment this cold, and you'll end up with a really nice, clean profile.

Was just about to make a very similar beer with's currently a bit warm in my house (62-66 ambient), so I was wondering if the temps posted above are ambient or fermentation temps? I'm looking to limit the esters if possible..with a swamp fan :/
