Hoppy Amarillo Wheat Racked

Three days ago I racked a batch I brewed early last week. It's a hoppy (more hoppy than bitter if you know what I mean) wheat ale. I pitched about a pint of slurry from my two previous batches which was slow to take off (didn't make a starter, just re-pitched the slurry), so next time I'll probably make a starter with the slurry for a faster start. This batch was very cloudy when I racked from the primary after just three days of fermentation and has since cleared up a quite a bit but still shows signs of fermentation. This batch marks the first time in years that I've re-used the same liquid yeast more than once and I'm pretty pleased with the results so far.
