I voted for #1, before I read every body's posts. One thing I noticed- with the FWH and the 2 dry hops, that's 8 hops additions. I still like that grain bill, and 7 hops additions.

But, I'll defer to the experts, and do whatever the consensus is.

I still like the idea of it being wholly consistent (including yeast), but wouldn't cry if I was outvoted.

LMAO! That is a very good point. This whole thing is becoming both more exhausting and more amusing as time goes by. If I had been around for 06.06.06, I probably would've already learned my lesson and not exacerbated the problem.

Personally, I cant vote for any of the 4. The previous grain bill looked like it was all set, but now its changing again. The hops were almost set, now they are changing to ones not even voted on. And the yeast choices are all over the place. Now the 4 proposed in the poll are a mixture of everything.

It was supposed to be a group thing, and more and more its becoming individual concensus. Last years recipe went by the polls, and the majority votes held more ground than the individual. And last years was more complex. Now we are trying to brew a simple American Pale Ale, and its going off the deep end.

Seriously, Im not trying to offend anyone, but on the previous recipe, cut off points were set on each part of the process, and we moved on to the next. And that simple process has since eluded us. And in my opinion, Dude kept good control over the last one, by doing the cut offs, and moving on to the next part. Dude didnt create the previous recipe, but he did create order in creating it.

My opinion on getting straightened out is to take the majority results, and fomulate 3 simple, straight forward polls, 1 for the grain bill which includes the 7 grains chosen, but in the various amounts. 1 for the hops choice out of the top 5 chosen, and one for the yeast. Then the recipe can be formulated by the group, decide on a hops schedule, and brewed to be ready by 07.07.07, which was the original idea to begin with, when Dude prompted us to do a 06.06.06 group recipe. I really want us to do a true group brew, and think we can do it.

We're allowing too many options. Let's settle this one and for all:

Here's the grain bill
7 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain
1 lbs Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Honey Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain
4.0 oz Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain

Dude, you pick out the hops and your decision is final. However, keep it within these confines:

1. Under 3 ounces total
2. No flavors that will overpower the malt
3. No dry hopping, First Wort Hopping, or any other "trick hopping".
4. Since this is an American Pale Ale, let's try to work with American hops.

Limit it to two or three varieties, and keep the IBU's at a level where everyone will enjoy the flavor. You can also determine the additions.

YEAST: American Pale Ale. 1272 or 1056. You have the option.

Now, can everyone agree with that?

I think I'm in this camp. I wasn't around for 06.06.06 though, so I really don't know what the precedent was. For this one though, we had a grain bill, then we moved on to hops, and now someone wants to change the grain bill? I think we need to go back to what was already "agreed upon."

The top three hops from the poll were Cascade, Simcoe, and Amarillo. We should use those. Period.

Yeast hasn't been discussed much. Let's nail down the hop profile using what the majority voted for (see above), and then move to yeast.

Someone please tell me (a) I'm not alone, or (b) to shut up and sit down in the corner where I belong. Thanks.

At this point, I like the grain bill, and I'll go along with whatever is decided on with hops and yeast.

I haven't chimed in much on this since it seemed to be getting so crazy it was hard to follow. I figured I'd let the dust settle and brew up whatever was decided on by the majority. I like the grain bill as posted above by Cheesefood as well. I'll sit back now and wait for a decision on hops and yeast. Hey man, I'm easy!

The 06.06.06 brew went much smoother. Lots of input and lots of agreement.
