(Mini-mash version with S-23 yeast) This was my eighth extract brew and everything went accordingly, hitting the final gravity. I kept it in primary for three weeks submerged in a swamp cooler in my 68-70F basement (so, probably a bit on the warm side). However, the flavor is really nice. Doesn't seem overly fruity as a result of temps. In fact, it has a nicely pronounced maltiness and those Northern Brewer hops really provide a good balance and bitter bite. My only issue is that after five weeks in bottles, it is minimally carbonated---just a bit above flat. I can't figure out why since my process was the same as before and I've never had problems with carbonation. Other than that, these go down easily and it's been a good choice for a summer beer. Recommended!
