Zombie Dust Clone DME

    ok bastards. after 5 or so attempts, i feel i have nailed down a DME version of Zombie Dust. It is phenomenal. like most really god single hopped brews, the recipe is stupidly simple. but the pilsen light DME seems to be key for this.

    also, dry hopping at the tail end of fermentation, around day 5-6 goes a long way for getting the most of the dry hop.

    Yeah but you don't like hops. So it's ok. They actually don't distribute here. Jerks.
