Brewed this up last week. Used a bit less pils malt and a bit more wheat because that's what i had on hand. I also bittered with .6oz Magnum and did .5oz of tettnang every 5min from 20-0. Fermented very quickly and is down to 1.009 as of today. I'm going to leave it at ~65-68 for another few days then cold crash for a week or so since my kegerator is backed up anyways.

how would this recipe turn out if i am unable to crash cool it for 4 days?

i would be leaving it in the primary for 7 - 10 days at around 68, and then secondary for 2 - 3 weeks at around 72, then bottling.

No problem. It just helps the yeast settle out and you are doing a secondary which does just that.

I would leave it 2 weeks in the primary and let the yeasties finish cleaning up.

Different amounts are used for different systems...Use a program like BS. Or calculate roughly 1.25quarts of water per pound of grain. In my case I use 1.35

Quarts! He means quarts, not gallons!

Thank you...I fixed it, he would of had some watered down beer. I try to keep my initial strike/sparge water somewhat equal. I know if your doin fly sparging theres no need to worry. Iv'e never done a decoction so im not sure how you heat things up and let things rest.

Also account absorption...I always do my initial dough in, collect running's then see how much water is needed to collect final volume. Normally my BS tells me correct, just takes some getting use to and knowing what works and what doesn't.

Just put another batch on tap. After fermentation, I let it sit in the fridge for two weeks before kegging it. It cleared so beautifully.

Edwort or someone smarter than I,

What (other than beer) would I have if I brewed these recipe with Wyeast 2112?
Would it be close to a Kolsch? Or closer to a CA steam beer?

Thanks
