Brewed on 10/26/12, extract with WLP001 in a 2L yeast starter and full 5 gal boil. Kit came with an extra 1/2oz of Chinook unaccounted for in receipe; I split it between aroma addition and dry hop. Added whirfloc tablet (irish moss) for clarifying. Added an extra ounce each of Chinook, Cascade, & Centennial to the dry hop as well. 7 days in primary, 18 days in secondary, all at a constant 70 degrees. Result was BY FAR the best thing I've ever made. Truly fantastic. Individual characteristics of all three hop varieties came through with a wonderful backbone and color. What I made is NOT a clone of Celebration, but like another reviewer said, this kit is a great starting point. Also, addressing the previous review, my kit did come with Centennial hops. Mine was purchased 10/9/12. Perhaps the receipe has been changed since then.
