Notes

Brew #10. 50 Gal. YTD
Racked to Secondary 9/18 and dry hopped with 1 oz cascade. Nice delicate sweet tast when racked.
Bottled on 9/26/04. Sweet aroma with a nice hop nose. Maybe a little over hopped. We will see after it conditions.
Tasted 10/1. A little thin but a nice hoppy flavor and aroma. A delicate sweetness in the backround. More like a pale ale than what I was shooting for due to oversparging.
