    Day 8 of fermentation for me – As ian pointed out, my batch is much darker in appearance as well. How long do you recommend for the dry hop/oak additions?

    Just had my first pint of this :) awesome turned out a bit darker than the picture. Might brew again using styrian goldings hops instead of the east Kent ones.
