when I took it out of the fridge last night to rack to keg it half slush so the clarity is not great. some chill haze. I will pour a pint tonight (after sitting at ~58 for a day) and snap a pic.

I don't know if the agar did anything. still more research needed on that. tasted pretty good. maybe a little too hoppy but there is a goodly amount of malt to back it up.

I have been doing this a lot as of late. I would recomend US04 and 1968. The 1968 brings up the point of diacetyl rests. I think this is important to bring up when talking about rushing things. 24 or 36 hours at or just below 70f after primary is complete can finish a beer up quickly and quite nice. I try to get all my hefes in the keg before 7 days, i think it is the secret ingredient! I also think IBUs amd hop oil contents play a big role in a beer tasting green. I have found any thing over 50 or so IBUs to require a month to come around.
