Recommend use of blow off hose in primary ferment. Hops can be varied to your taste. I havn't calculated HBUs, specifig gravity or alcohol content in years. Would estimate about 12-13% alcohol content by volume. Heavy complex hop character offsets sweetness. Was not able to wait 4 months with 1st batch but it is worth wait. Gets better witrh longer aging periods.
