I went to check on and drop the lagering temp a bit more and interestingly enough the airlock is bubbling about every 2 seconds. I know it could be off gassing but I'm wondering if transferring to secondary restarted fermentation. I had gotten a stable 1.008 reading for 4 days. What FG have you all ended at?

I going to let this sit until mid-June, about the time wheat should be harvested around here, then keg and carb so its ready for the 4th of July.

I doubled the recipe yesterday, and made up a 10gal batch. I missed most of my numbers on the mash, by a little bit, but the OG turned out right. So much for dumb luck and patience. I have 2 5 gallon fermenters sitting in the cooler at 55 right now. I'll see about 6 tonight how it's going. I used WLP840 on mine.

I made another 5 gallons on Monday and its fermenting beautifully now. I actually overshot my gravity and needed to water it down a little going into the fermenter!

I brewed this a second time today. The first batch I brewed was excellent. I brought a keg of this and a witbier to a get-together and people chose this one much more frequently.

This time, I tried altering the grain bill somewhat. I did:

7 lbs 2-row
1.5 lbs flaked corn
1 lb flaked rice
.5 lb vienna
.5 lb victory

I also mashed a bit lower, at 147 for 75 mins.

Will let you know in 6 weeks how it compares

I got the best compliment on this beer about a week ago. One of my friends was over and was drinking a glass of it, and told me, "I'd actually buy this."

I just got my next batch of Crop Chopper on tap yesterday...now just waiting for it to carb up! I used only 2 row, more corn and less rice this time, so we will see how it changes things. I'll keep you posted.

This is the next batch I've brewed of the CCPAL. I made it with a little more corn and less rice this time and its a little sweeter and not as dry tasting, though the SG was at 1.010. My OG was 1.057 this time, I still like it
