Clintonville Pale Ale

This batch is still a week young in the bottle, but very good. My hat to Walter, the scientist, for a desire to taste knowledge as well as good homebrew. How he is going to keep the dry-hops from tapping into his glass from the kegg, I have no solution other than an O' ring and a filter sponge/copper pot scrubber. Good brew to all.
Get some in ya!

No yeast activity - aggitated vigoursly for one minute - will check later - hope it starts - starter was VERY slow
After the previous good stir, fermentation took off fast. Finished in four days - moved to secondary and added 2oz Centenial to dry hop with 1oz oak chips. We will see. . .
Bottled with 1cup DME - Very Bitter but tasty
God, is this tasty - just four days in the bottle and I am making this recipe tomorrow with 30L Crystal for deeper colour.
