For me, this is one of the best beers I have brewed. It is lovely.

Yep that's it. This was the original and the dry hop addition came later and even though I have brewed both variations many times I'm not sure which I prefer. I prefer to let it mature at least a month as galaxy can be harsh when drank to young but again other will differ.

I've just mashed in, looking forward to tasting it.

Subbed aromatic for carapils as that was the closest I had. My galaxy is pellet so I've subbed the battering hop for admiral ( I like to have some leaf to filter)

BLM! :D
When Dennis brings a crate of this to the HBF, there is a mad rush to get a couple of bottles before `BarnsleyBrewer` shows up! :D :D

I would like to brew this but down at 4%, sticking to 92/6/2 ratio would this still come similar to the original?

Cheers.
