General Information
Method: Extract

Beer took a bit longer to carbonate than I normally like.

My tasting notes: Good amount of Esters present, moderate mouthfeel, rich golden copper color. However typical clove flavors are not pronounced. Very easy drinking wheat beer.

Next attempt will have either Cranberry or a Berry flavor added to the secondary.
