I yielded about 12 gallons, and I'm moving through it pretty quick between giving it away and drinking at least a couple every night.

I'm kicking around the idea of running it again with Cascade instead of Saaz, and possibly running a cereal mash instead of using pre-geletanized corn and rice.

My hope is that if I get around to planting some Cascade hops next spring, and use the cheaper grains, I can produce a popular easy to drink crowd pleaser for next to nothing.

We will see.

Default Clearing in the keg


BierMuncher,

How long will it take for this beer to become as crystal clear as your picture?
I used gelatin in the secondary on my batch of this brew. I have it on 12 psi in the kegerator right now. I'll give it a week on CO2 and check the clarity and carb level at that point. I'd like to share this beer with some my friends in a couple weeks. Hopefully it will be nice and clear by then.
Thanks!

and with Cascades, you really shouldn't have to use very much. I used:
0.50 oz Cascade [5.90%] (60 min)
0.25 oz Cascade [5.90%] (0 min)

and it's great. I don't know how it compares to the original...cause I never got an original made, but I'm here to tell you even the kids like this one!

A couple of weeks should be plenty of time...especially if you're sampling a bit along the way and pulling the denser "murk" off the bottom of the keg.

Default Ready to batch 5 gallons


I browsed this entire thread finally and I'm ready to brew. I will substitute Sorghum Malt Extract for the 2 row pale malt AND will use Lager Wyeast instead of Safale 05 to make it gluten free. I'm stoked.

Let us know how it turns out. This recipe is oh so close to gluten free, I've been toying with the idea of modding it for celiac drinkers.

Did this with all Tett today. Dad was given wrong yeast (Saflager 23) instead of Safale 05. All we have in the house is the Saflager 23 and some Muttons.. Which would you use?

Saflager 23 is a lager yeast.... so unless you plan on fermenting at low temps and having a large pitching volume might want to consider the Muttons (if its an ale yeast).

we had to pitch before we got a response and went with the saflager 23, hope it turns out OK. We used all Tetts and had to substitute 2 LBs of Maris Otter for the American 2 row, since we were short. If my son calculated right, we got 95% efficiency and had a OG of 1.044
