Its almost impossible to mess this recipe up.

There is no off taste from the extract as some have claimed.
When you want to make beer, but are pressed for time, this brew is a godsend for me.
Its my House Brew, eveyone likes it.
You could try a Hefe yeast..... I will try that next time.

Awesome setup! I dream of the day I can have three carboys going at once. That really sounds like a great wheat beer. And +1 on the US-05. I love that stuff.

I just kegged a batch of this today. I wanted a more swmbo friendly session beer so I used 1 less pound of Extract. Tasted great even not carbed.

I just made this today, though I kept the orange and coriander out (as I'm prepping to brew a blue moon clone soon) with the intention of adding apricot either in a secondary or (with extract) at bottling time. Looking forward to it - thanks for the easy recipe.

Here is a pic. Been in the keg for almost a month.

Filled the glass, had nice head. Great lacing.




Sorry drank a bit on the way to take the pic.

For some reason this takes some time to carb. ????

I dunno why. Even on 60 psi, doesnt seem to matter. Takes two weeks to carb how I like it.

No one will say they dont like this.....unless they are a beer snob.

Its simple, fun and well received.

Aging a bit seems to help. Its really sweet at first but mellows some.

I need to up the hops a bit on the next batch.

I like the idea of this. I don't have a good way to keep anything below 70 at this point though. How would this work if I fermented at room temp instead?

I have used Safale 05 at room temp for other brews.

Honestly though this is the best way I hae found to lower my fermenting temps without a ferm chamber:



This is simply a shelf, placed against the concrete wall in my basement. I have encased the shelf with sheets of pink foam insulation. You can see the insulation in the pic. I can only control the temp a small amount, but more importantly, temp is consistant and light free.

I think keeping it from light and consistant temps as low as possible is the best bet.
