I liked this so much as did everyone else that I'm brewing another batch. I'm trying a little higher mash temperature of 158F to get more un-fermentible sugar to balance the higher bitterness of the hops. I added a little Cara-Pils because I had it. I'm also using two yeasts. Each carboy will get 1/2 of each dry yeast. I really like the taste of two mixed yeasts and how they worked in the carboy. I think I'll continue this yeast blend for awhile. Brewed today 9/6/12
