Well, I never followed up on this. Might as well.

I made two batches with the six-row. Both were good. 

One thing I noticed was it came out a lot more bitter than expected. Probably a combination of adjuncts and a low mash temperature. Next time less bittering hops. Otherwise it was great. Light in body but still some maltiness from decoction. Nice aroma from the dry hops.

Most definitely worth repeating.
