Fizzy Yellow Beer
1 Attachment(s)

7 lbs Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 70.00 %
3 lbs Pilsner (2 Row) UK (1.0 SRM) Grain 30.00 %
0.50 oz Pearle [8.40 %] (60 min) Hops 14.4 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.20 %] (45 min) Hops 6.6 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.20 %] (0 min) Hops -
1 Pkgs Safale US-05 (Fermentis #US-05) Yeast-Ale

Mash at 150 degrees for 60-75 minutes. Sparge to get boil volume. Boil for 60 minutes, and rapidly chill to 62 degrees. Add yeast, and ferment at 62 for 14 days. Rack into secondary, or keg, and crash cool until clear.

This beer was not originally mine- I found it somewhere here, but can't find the thread of who posted it. Will the real recipe-czar please confess? I made a few changes, to match my supplies, but other yeast strains can be used. German Ale yeast, at a cool ale temperature, would be wonderful. This beer tastes like a more flavorfull BMC.

Due to my long and low temp mash, it finished at 1.008, lower than my goal of about 1.010-1.012. I thought it might be too dry, but it actually turned out perfect!

This was my first all grain brew. I choose it because it seemed pretty simple to brew. It is currently in my secondary and will be transferred to keg either this weekend or sometime during the next week.

I brewed this using the BIAB method.

I can hardly wait to give it a taste test.

UPDATE: 1/30/2012 - here it is though the picture from my phone doesn't do it justice. Plus my SWMBO says it is the best tasting beer I have made...so far.

Brewed up another 12 gallons of this. Great light beer for my BMC friends.

Bottled on Monday. Bit more boozy than I expected.

I need to brew more of this, ASAP! Pretty sure I'm nearing the end of the keg. I get anxious every time I pull the tap handle.

Crowd pleaser.
Another great recipe, cheers Yooper!

I meant to lager it a few more weeks before trying it, but I got impatient. Tapped it tonight. It could certainly benefit from a bit more lagering time and carbonation, but so far it's pretty good.

Light and crisp. Slight chill haze that fades as it warms into a pretty, clear beer. It seems to be a lot darker in color than my previous batch, not sure what that's about. I'll let it sit a few more weeks before coming back to it.

I think I'll try a German ale yeast for my next batch...Attachment 241307

So excited. Think the krausen is starting to retreat already.
