I tried to plug Boerderij_Kabouter's recipe into BS and i could figure out the mash schedule...I'm trying to get a partial mash recipe for Oberon...anyone had luck with any other recipes out there?

I'm curious - how big is your brew pot ?

You could just half the recipe listed & go with a 2 1/2 gallon batch as all grain if you have the necessary size boil kettle.

I am currently drinking my first batch of a different clone recipe for Oberon - since I haven't been in MI for a while - and I cannot get it out here in MA (dammitall), I am only sampling mine - which is a tasty brew on its own. It reminds me of Oberon so far (for whatever that is worth).

Will post the recipe I used when I can - its significantly different from the one here ...

Did you just let the bottle sit of a little while then slowly poor the beer off and resuspend the pellet at the bottom in a yeast nutrient starter? Could you please give me more detail?

this is going to be a noob question but i just want to double check. My LHBS has cascade but its AA is 8.7. Would i be better to just use 0.5 oz with the higher AA or use less to match the 8.7. will using less result in less of the hops flavor from dry hopping? on page to the all grain used cascade at 5.5

Use less to match the IBU's. Plug the numbers in a brewing program or an online bitterness calculator and you shall see. Hop AA are always changing.

www.tastybrew.com has some decent online calculators. Plug and chug!

Use AAU bittering calculations.

AAU = AA% x oz.

for example:

1oz. cascade at 8.7AA% equals 8.7 AAU.

To find out how much hops to use at a different AA% just work backwards.

8.7 AAU = 5 AA% x X oz.

8.7 / 5 = 1.74 oz. of cascade hops at 5 AA%.
