So, last spring I thought it would be nice to brew a helles for the summer.
But then I never found an appropriate block of time to lager it. So the malt and hops lay around (I had decided to start with Jon Plise's helles, available in kit form from MoreBeer) for a while. I decided that, yeah, I just don't want to deal with lagering right now, and it's the wrong season for a helles anyway. SO, I decided to use the same set of ingredients with an ale yeast. It'll still be a bit blonde for the winter, but...

Anyway, looking for thoughts, especially from, well, you know who you are.
