How's the all Cascade version ? That much late Cascade and Dry Hop Cascade makes me worried it would be a lot -- thats really a mouth full of Cascade in such a small beer.
I've been wanting to make an all Cascade lager for about a year now, since I read Papa Charlie's "Rocky's Raccoon" recipe.
This will probably be the next beer I try. I've made several beers similar to this, you know light beers but I haven't had the nerve to try going as low as .030 to start yet.
I've got plenty of w34/70 and a couple pounds of Cascades in the freezer from last year that need to get used up, I'll stop and get the enzyme at the brew store before this weekend.
I was thinking about the color I wonder if they "Miller" add food coloring to darken it or add a little crystal. I'm ok with lighter color its more like a corona in appearance.
It was a bit much of for the cascade, at first, but it mellowed with time. I dry hopped the hell out of it tho. Once its cold its pretty good. Its brisk and refreshing. Citrusy.
I'm drinking sorachi ace right now. Its not too much.
I do believe there is a diminishing return. If I late hopped with 50% less I doubt I could have noticed the difference. I have pounds of hops so I'm eager to do late additions. I have a big harvest coming soon in August.
Try it, but let it set for a bit, so its not so crazy hoppy. If you are concerned about it, just use less.
