Hefe.2

Brewed 5/11/11
The next step in the evolution of the "H-Series". Too many changes to call this one "H7"; We've more than doubled the specialty grains, we're using 65/35 wheat DME, and the yeast is a strain we've never tried.

So how are they? Let's just say the clove is strong with this one. A controlled fermentation temperature helped to keep the esters at bay, and there is almost no hint of banana. They are spicy and crisp, and a perfect complement to a hot summer afternoon.
