Pretty well explained in the ingredients, I haven't gone to secondary yet, but bubbler is going like crazy, and smells great as well. Not for exeryone, but written for my brother as a brew we can all enjoy camoing/fishing etc. If you try let me know how it went, and plz, constructive criticism is always helpful.

Thank you, it's hit me hard for sure, and even though he wasn't a drinker, he loved brewing with me. At any rate, I think if I had used White Labs I would have gone with WLP060 I haven't ever used White Labs, not readily available and with the weather so cold I don't want to attempt to order any from online. I will be bottling it when I get home in a couple weeks, it tasted fantastic so far. If you brew it with white labs, let me know how it turned out. This is a rough recipe and will probably need refining, so any bit of advice helps.

My condolences to you on the passing of your brother. I made a recipe almost identical to this. However I dry hopped an ounce of the Citra for the last week in secondary. It was amazing. Tasted like Sierra Nevada Torpedo. All my hop heads were blown away. Going to make yours your way though to make it more palatable for everyone.

What White Labs yeast do you recommend?
