This beer is good- but last night I tasted it head to head with Anchor Steam. One of my impressions is that the commercial version has more late addition hops. Maybe some dry hopping would help it come closer. I think NB hops tend to be harsh in later additions, though, so I'll keep my "clone" as is. My husband and I both prefer my version over the Anchor Steam due to the smoothness I have in mine.

That smoothness sounds preferrable to me too, Yoop. I'll stick this one on the docket to brew.

Well I'm a dork and forgot to add the hops at flame out. I think I'll dry hop in the secondary to compensate but I don't want to use Northern Brewer. I've got some cascade but I don't know if that would be right eather. Any ideas?

Sounds great! I put this one in line. I'll have to see if I can dig up some NB.

Well, I'm a fairly rigid person ;), so I would stick closer to the style guidelines on this one. Actually, I love cascades, but I seem to use them in everything because I'm into that slight grapefruit zest. How about something not citrusy in this one. Maybe like saaz. Or the NB, but in a very small amount at first until you see if it's what you're looking for.

I'm not great with hops, though, so better ask someone who can really give you an idea of what a good aroma/dry hop would be for this recipe.

I've heard from a very reliable source (SEWAGE) that this is indeed a fact! :mug:

I've got some NB hops. maybe just a touch like a 1/2 ounce? I'm not great with hops either!

I just finished the chapter in Jamil's book on CC. He strongly recommends not using anything citrusy or it will overpower any fruitiness from the yeast. I think the NB would be fine.

I'm thinking about brewing this again on Sunday but I want to try MO as the base malt. I can dump it on the cake from the first batch. ProMash says it will raise the color to 10.1 and it might add a gravity point. I'm not interested in matching the style. I am just thinking about playing. I might even add hops at flame out this time!:ban:
