Nice and rich, medium body, light, crisp, a nice fair hop bitterness, with subtle flavor evident, and a fine boquet.
Very proud of this one.

standard instructions for any extract brew. I personally use a boiled legnth of my wifes old nylons tied at the ends with my hops for the brew, and tie a piece of boiled fishing line to a 'nylon/hop' bag in my carboy to dry hop. works like a champ, if you use a long enough piece of nylons, the hops will spread out and pull right through the opening. other than that, honey takes a while to ferment, and might appear to fermenting after 2 weeks, after the first 12 days it still bubbled a little bit, but the gravity didn't change over the last 3 days.
