Default All-Grain - Bottoms Up Cali Un-Common

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Pilsner - Wyeast 2007
Yeast Starter: None
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 16
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 11
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Tasting Notes: Crisp, light, creamy mouth feel

This is one of my favorites to make now. It's crisp, light, creamy mouth feel, slightly malty, slightly hoppy. Yummy!

9 lb. 2-row US Pale
1.25 lb. Crystal 60L
0.25 lb. Dextrine (could up to 1/2)

0.75 oz Pearle 7% (60)
1 oz Cascade 6.9% (2)

Gypsum (30)

60 min @ 154

I ferment this in the mid 60's.
California Commons typically have 30-40 IBU ratings, so this cuts that in half (thus the un-common). Also, I don't believe Pilsner yeast is commonly used for CC's, but I find it adds the right malty profile I'm looking for in the beverage. It's a Pilsner Ale.
