I brewed this last week with adjustments for 5.5 gallon BIAB. It smelled nice going into the fermentir and US-05 is happily working on it. Thanks for posting the recipe!

I have been drinking this one as it conditions in the keg. It is really a nice beer. I get a touch of 'dark malt' flavor which reminds me this isn't a pale ale. It goes down easy because the bittering is balanced with the malt. It is somewhat thick with regard to mouthfeel... I think I will mash at 152 next time instead of 154, but that is a personal choice.

I used 6 oz of amber malt in this version.

Anyway, thanks for publishing this. I like it and I'm going to do it again for sure.

Did you make your own amber malt by roasting or was the malt store bought? I think I might mash lower next time for a more warm weather (less heavy) version of this beer. Good to learn that you enjoyed this brew.

Here is what I used. I also highly recommend the shop. They are great.

Hope it goes well for you. I would much rather be brewing today on the 4th instead of going to my inlaws for the holiday. Their idea of good beer is Old Style light.

Old Style, that brings me back to college brew turned out great, I modified very slightly based upon what lhbs had but I think it will be a nice one. The centennial and cascade combo is going to be very nice I'm sure.

Sounds like a delicious beer - I hope to brew next weekend, so I better make a trip to the local HB shop.

Checking out the recipe, it looks kind of like an APA with more colour. Is that an accurate description?

Have you tried dry-hopping it, and if so how did that work out for you?

Looks like a lekker (nice) beer.

The only crystal malt I can get is 30L. So I was thinking of subbing the crystal and amber with chocolate malt but then sticking to the rest of your recipe. Any thoughts on that?
