Lady Luck Amber

Lady Luck Amber
Pale Malt
Munich malt
English Crystal
Midnight Wheat
No bittering hops
0 minute hops - 40 minute whirlpool - 50g amarilo - 50 g palisade 

2nd Hop bursting beer.
Hop bursting is technique published by Jamil Zainasheff
I emailed Jamil about an entry in Ron Pattinson's blog (Shut up Barkley Perkins) where Ron documents this technique done in the 1700's.
It was something new in the craft and homebrew scene, but it turns out it was done a long time ago.
