Notes

I have never used Zythos hops before, but thought I would give them a try as I received 6 oz. free from Williams Brewing.
Steeped crystal 40 at 155F for 25 min., then began boil. Bulk of extract was added as late addition.
I pitched onto half of the yeast cake from prior beer that I was bottling the same day. The yeast was one pack of Nottingham and one Wyeast 1272 Amer.Ale II.
Four weeks in primary, no secondary fermenter. Dry hopped with 2 oz. Zythos pellets for last 10 days. I just threw them in loose.
At bottling time the beer had a pleasant pineapple/citrus smell. Primed with 5 oz. of cane sugar.
Starting gravity was 1.073 and finished at 1.017
This was just a test of some zythos hops that I had and it turned out good, but not great. I would like a hoppier and less sweet beer so next time I will be making some changes. I will half the crystal and use something like magnum to bitter with and add some simcoe along with the zythos for flavor/aroma.
10 months later...this beer actually smoothed out and was pretty decent, too bad i was on my last bottle.
