I've adjusted the hop schedule (shown above) for next time, as it was too bitter for what I was trying to create (it is now IBU 17).

I am also going to push the second DME addition to 5 minutes as the color was still too dark (golden when i wanted something more towards straw)

On a side note, I also tried using olive oil instead of aeration. I dipped the very, very tip of my sanitized metal thermometer in some olive oil and added it the wort when I pitched my yeast. I pitched 1 pack of rehydrated Safale-05. I had to attach a blow off tube because of the vigorous fermentation at 68 deg. The beer ended up with excellent head and with zero trace of the oil.

My next batch (an amber) I used 2 packets of rehydrated yeast and shook aerate. The fermentation was about 1/4 as strong as the previous batch.

Just food for thought.

Do I read this correctly as:

the modified hop schedule is

0.75 oz Willamette at 60
0.75 oz Willamette at 20
0.25 oz Willamette at 1 (not 0.50)

The second 1/2 of the DME is added at 5 min to go, not 30 min to go?

Sorry for the mistakes Bender.

I've fixed it, the schedule is indeed:

0.75 at 60
0.75 at 20
0.50 at 1

The second half of the DME is added at 5 minutes to sanitize it but not make it any darker than it already is.

Thanks. I'm going to give this a try.

Well, my LHBS doesn't seem to carry the Safale line of dry yeasts. They do have a generic Muntons ale yeast. I'd rather not spring for a liquid Wyeast. How would the Muntons work as a substitute?

"Place 3 gallons of cool water in brewpot and bring to 150 F. Put steeping grains in bag and steep for 1 hour." That seems like a lot of water for the amount of grain and a long steep time. That being said, I'm still a "beginner" brewer and made it this today. I overshot my temp and it got up to 165. I'm still perfecting on my temp control. I turned the heat off and only steeped for 45min. I wouldn't think it would make much difference in the end.

I made this beer and I'm currently drinking what's left over from my bottling bucket and what spilled from the bottling wand.

It's delicious!
