I kegged and tasted this beer yesterday.

I really like it. With all of the late addition hops, and the bit at first wort, it does not have any astringency.

Although I think the Crystal Malt sweetness is carrying the hop flavour, I may drop it down a wee bit next time as it tastes a touch sweet for me. My wife likes it, which is saying something as she does not like the bitterness I usually love.

The North WLG brewers know how much I like to slam the hops on. :)

Thoughts?

Hey Michael, I'm not that keen on S04 - do you like it or can't find S05 ?

Plenty of in hops there, just surprised you're not dry hopping it too :-)

Cheers!

I have been playing with S04 lately, as I like how it floculates nicely. However, I have found that it seems to squash my hops. Maybe it just tastes that way as it does not attenuate as well as s05 or Wy1056.

In the future, I will likely do this again with Wy1056 that I harvested on a previous batch.

The only reason I did not dry hop is because I reckoned I could use that same 100g on another brew instead of a dry hop The local brew shops are slammed now that some are shipping again, and I do not know how fast I can get more hops.

On the bright side, I hit all of my numbers on this brew!
