"I just love this beer",

note you can use 05 yeast, it will have a thinner lighter mouth feel, for San Diego super yeast, had a huge krausen that didn't drop after 2 weeks and was a bit cloudier and thicker mouth, I like both for different reasons, also dry or keg hop this to any flavor you want, Ive done this several ways, still taste great

added more hops for a taste test this last batch after setting for 30 days the flavor started to disappear
