I'm brewing this today all-grain. Since the AG version comes out quite a bit lighter in color I beefed it up with 6oz. of special B and 6oz. Carafa II, which should also add a little depth to the flavor without abridging the drinkability.

I'll post again in a month with taste results!

How did this turn out? This is one of the first beers I made, but I've recently got not AG and would like to find a way to replicate this.

anyone else have trouble getting the temp down to pitching temp on this? After adding the RO water as mentioned temp was only at 110. No Wort Chiller available so I spent some time trying to get it cooled in an icebath after already 5 gal in fermenter. my RO water was chilled for 36 hours but apparently not cold enough.. ended up pitching at about 82 degrees and putting in basement with some icepacks around it...

This recipe caught my eye, and after reading it, along with many of the favorable posts that followed, I couldn't sleep waiting to brew a batch! Well all ingredients have been purchased... this Saturday has been set aside as a brew day!

NTOLERANCE, it sure appears you have a real winner here... very popular with the crowd. I cant wait to finish this up and give it try, or two, or three, or...

Brew On!!!

I must tip my hat to you. Yes this is a rather simple recipe, but man is it tasty! I changed the hop additions a bit to suit my palate. I used Saaz, but added them as follows: added 1.0 oz @ 60 minutes; 1.5 oz @ 20 minutes, and 0.5 oz at 10 minutes. The beer is still smooth and easy drinking, but has a bit more of a hop profile in the taste.

I love the way the flavorings come through, especially the orange peel. I bottled this batch and primed it with about 3.86 oz of corn sugar, which gave it a perfect level of carbonation... exceptional head formation and retention!

The only thing I would change, is I'd rack to a secondary for another week to allow for a bit of clarification. Even with the Irish Moss addition, the beer remains a little more cloudy than I would like.

Nothing left to say but, thanks!
