Notes

Sorachi Ace can be swapped for Cascade
~4 small limes for .5oz zest

///

Next time 4 small limes only gave .3Xoz. More limes!
Turns out recipe really wants to end up with 5.5gal in fermenter. The limeaid brings it to 6gal. Take away .5gal from initial ferment.
I added 10-20% more hops than recipe called for in an effort to address perceived underbittering
