Like always I do a whirlpool from the end of the boil till the temp reaches 170, this can take a while but its worth it

you could go as far as to use 1 ounce at 2 then dry hop 1.5 ounces, I chose not to dry hop this time and it worked worked only because I have a whirlpool pump now and its automatic

this turned out perfect, yes you use a lot of cascade, but I had a pound in the fridge and decided to try this, I couldn't be happier, follow the recipe exactly, scale it to your size and you will be happy, enjoy
