Took a gravity reading today and I am down to 1.010. A little low. But it tastes awesome. Going to dry hop on Wednesday and keg this weekend.

Mine is mostly carbed and tastes really good, going to pick up some mirror pond soon and try them side by side. I dry hopped 5 days.

I'm brewing a batch of this with the only recipe change is using Rahr Pale Ale malt (Not the Rahr American 2-Row malt) because it's available locally.

Does anyone have information about carbonation? I read some Beeradvocate reviews and people call it "moderate" carbonation. Any advice for bottling priming this clone?

I think I went with about 2 or so volumes which seemed the same as the commercial example.

I emailed Deschutes about Mirror Pond carbonation and got this response:

"When we pour Mirror Pond in our tasting room in Bend, the pressure is at 12-14 psi and we store it at 43 degrees."

This equals 2.3-2.5 vol CO2

You should be able to just use the 5 gallon batch and scale it up to 10 gallons for your system (assuming you have beersmith) - that's all I did. If you don't have beersmith simply double the 5 gallon batch and factor in grain absorption, boil off, etc for 10 gallons instead of 5. Feel free to PM me if you need anything on this.

I brewed a 10 gallon batch of this 2 weeks ago and just kegged it with 2oz of dry hops last night. It's my first time dry hopping in the keg so I'm interested to see how it turns out. I have it sitting in my basement with 12psi on it. I'll try it next weekend and report how it tastes. A sample from my hydro reading was really tasty!

My OG ended up being 1.049 with a FG of 1.010.

Way overshot my gravity at 1.061 watered it down to 1.057. I couldn't bring myself to add anymore water...
New store with a different mill setting, way higher efficiency.
