Boil: *I used a 3 gal kettle, added to much at once, lost some of the wort, thus not being a 5 gal recipe. I readjusted the recipe to similar what I made (according to the SG).

Pitched yeast at 70 F

Primed with about 3/4 cup of priming sugar boiled in a pint of water (*note-about due to losing some of wort.)

Very Tasty!!!!
