Fermented for 10 days then into keg and carbed up to 2.6vols

Came out as a nice floral/earthy hop character very subtle in back of a light bready malt but overall some nice fizzy yellow beer! I started with a version of Cream of Three Crops but haven't moved up to all grain yet. Thanks for the inspiration, this will definitely be brewed again and may be a nice base to experiment with different hop varieties.
