Thanks a ton for the recipe as well as all your input throughout this string, Biermuncher! I brewed this yesterday and everything went smooth as silk. I am looking forward to using gelatin as a clarifier for the first time.

Quick question--in an early thread you mentioned that you use gelatin in the secondary, then you also put in an additional amount of gelatin in your keg when kegging. I am bottle conditioning my batch--would there be any benefit to adding a small amount of gelatin to the bottling bucket or is that just overkill?

Thanks again and best wishes!

Lager version transfered into a secondary. Still too young to get a good taste on it.

OG - 1.052 6.0 gallons
FG - 1.008 5.25 gallons

Now to set it and forget it for 6-8 weeks.

I just kegged my first go at this recipe. The sample was great! Crisp, light, and VERY clear (I didn't use Whirlfloc or Gelatin) Thanks for the recipe, it'll for sure be a regular brew around here!

I did a 30 minute protein rest (for the rice) and a 60 minute mash with two 1.75 gallon sparges and a 75 minute boil and ended up with 6.33 gallons of 1.047 gravity wort.
I just bottled my 6 gallon version last night. It tasted pretty damn good for being warm and flat.

The gravity at bottling ended up being 1.010 with White Labs California Ale Yeast (78% attenuation). I expected a little bit better attenuation since there is 3 pounds of adjunct grains, but the ABV is slightly higher than the original Co3C recipe.

It was still very cloudy after 18 days in primary. I'm guessing that will clear up pretty well in the bottles.

Great recipe. Brewed this a few weeks ago. Everything went well.

Hit OG of 1.052 and FG of 1.006 with Safale05 pitched dry.

Mashed at 149F for 90 min and 90 min boil.

Primary 3 weeks at 66F, secondary 5 days with gelatin.

Only been in the keg 5 days and tastes fantastic and it's super clear. Can't wait for my BMC drinkers to try.

Thanks BM!

Sure, why not? It won't be the same beer, but will still turn out fine.

Has any one naturally carbed this brew in a keg? i brewed it on 3/12 and need it for a party on 4/2. I only have room for 2 kegs in my kegerator and both taps are in use. I plan on carbing naturally and serving via a picnic tap and this.http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/soda-keg-co2-.

TIA
