A 2.5 hour boil was so much fun. The good news is that at least I ended up at 1.030 for 5.25 gallons. I also only used 1/2 oz of cascade because mine was 7.5% AAU. I also doubt I will dry hop. Most of my BMC drinkers, including SWMBO, does not like the smell of hops. We'll see how it turns out. I'm looking forward to the citrusy flavor of the cascade. But boy will this one be light in color!
It will be very light, but that's the point. It will be the cleanest and clearest beer you prolly ever made. Just don't forget the AE in the 2ndary.

The long boil is not too bad. It will have no DMS to speak of taste-wise.

Well I brewed this up about a week ago (Dry hopping in the secondary with AE now)...

I pretty much followed the recipe only difference is I added 0.5 lb more 2 row to make up for my typical brewhouse eff. Wish I wouldn't have though because I ended up getting about 93% eff. and hit OG of 1.038, but I added a little water to bring it down. It's been a couple of days now in the secondary and the air lock is barley going. Going into the secondary had gravity of 1.010. Does it take longer for the AE to work? Also still very cloudy, but again it's only been in the secondary for a couple of days now.

I am thinking of trying the AG/Brew in a bag method and this beer seems like a perfect fit for it. I enjoy me some Miller Lite and adding a bit of hop character to it sounds wonderful to me.

I'm trying to play with BrewTarget and for some reason it keeps showing my SRM too high, but that's not for this thread.

As of today hydrometer confirmed no fermentation with AE in secondary still at 1.010... wonder if the AE I have is expired or something?

Would this be a hard beer to brew for my first ever batch? Im very new, and it says all grain i believe, is all grain a difficult thing to do? And do i need anything special for that?

I have added AE to secondary in two different "light beers" that I have brewed and it didn't drop the gravity in either of them. Makes me wonder if I did anything wrong...

Well I've ordered another bottle of AE from a different HBS. I'm not sure if AE needs to be refrigerated or not. I didn't store my AE in the refrigerator. Maybe I'll try doing that. I defiantly want to dry this out before bottling though because it still has a substantial corn flavor.

Well, I believe there is an extract version of this recipe at the beginning of this thread. If you're new enough that you haven't brewed before I wouldn't recommend all grain for your first brew but that's just me. If you wanted to brew this as your first I'd try using the extract version, but I also wouldn't brew a light beer as a first brew either.

I still haven't seen a good explaination as to why I can't add AE to the primary after a week. The yeast is done so the AE can convert the tough stuff. Why do I need to transfer it?

Let me know if it works for you. The AE I have (that hasn't done anything to speak of) is powdered. I got it from Brewmaster Warehouse. I would love to be able to dry out my light beers more... I would be curious to know where Schlenkerla gets his. Is it possible that my AE is no good?

Good question. Anyone?
