Haha! I've been bugging the guys at red brick for their Hoplanta recipe to no avail... Time to make sweet water instead!

Too bad I already used that pound of wet cascade on my first attempt.

Thanks for that. I see it won most session able beer for 2012. Sounds positive. I like the hops. Was going to put Amarillo in this one if I brewed it. Might just give it a go. Will let you know.

I'm not yet to the point where I'm comfortable altering recipes quite yet, do you think it'd be reasonable to swap both simcoe additions for citra, realizing the clone is out the window

I think it would totally be pretty darn close. I have also heard that simcoe is like Cascade on crack. Maybe you could substitute the Simcoe for 1.25 or 1.5 oz of Cascade or Centennial. I would feel comfortable doing any of those. I would be very interested how this turns out.

Brewed this today, swapped the simcoe for citra, planning to swap it for the dry hop addition as well here in a week.

used S05.

After have efficiencies in the 50's the first two AG batches, I asked my LHBS about their grinder, owner said he realized they had issues, and fixed it. I think now that there was still a problem as I'm still in the 50's efficiency wise based on BeerSmith.

Any how, finished up @ 1.043, instead of 1.062. Frustrated to say the least. I'll be buying a mill, but I update on how it turned out swapping the citra for simcoe, it is forsure going to be no where near the original.

Good call with the citra. I prolly would have done the same!! I don't think you can go wrong with using this as a base for your your own recipe either. Really special brew. Let us know how it come out.!!
