Proceed as you always do only you'll have the hops in the kettle with your wort until you begin to heat it. No need to rush it onto the burner. Once it begins to boil, then set your timer for 60 minutes just like a normal boil. Hope that clears it up!

So this cleared up nicely(after secondary and fining) Its developing a nice crisp flavor with a good floral taste from those EKGs. Its been bottled for about two weeks and I've been tossing random bottles in the fridge and "sampling" them every once in a while. I've seen the flavor progress, the first ones seemed like the flavors hadn't "melded", but its coming along great, now!



still clearing up a bit, I imagine after another month in the fridge, its gonna be excellent.

Thanks, its interesting how much of the EKGs come out in this with that first wort hopping. Its got a decent bitterness, but you still really get the flavor from the hops, I imagine if they were just boiled for the 60 minutes it wouldn't have pulled that character. It almost seems like a 15-20 minute addition. Thank you for the recipe...I'm gonna brew it again!

Just put 5 gallons into the fermenter (have some problems with figuring out proper volumes). Missed the mash temp a bit, in the 157 area. I think it was because i put my grains in the preheated MLT a bit earlier than usual and i think it raised the temp of the grain bed too much. I also had trouble hitting my mash out, but all in all i think it should be a good beer.

One other question, what temp does one try to ferment this at? I've never used this yeast before.

Thanks

Awesome! I'm sure it will turn out great!

If you're using S-04 you can ferment it between 64-68. Don't take it much higher than that though, since I've found S-04 to throw some off flavors when above 70. It does produce some nice English esters right between 66-68 though. The airlock will smell really good on this one!

Just took a few more shots of this one. I'm running out, I need to brew it up again soon!

Notice it drops crystal clear, even without finings (when using s-04 or wlp002/wy1968). There is some condensation on the glass here.


And the head becomes a smooth, silky froth that floats on top of the beer all the way to the bottom of the glass.

Brewed this recipe over the winter as my first foray into all-grain brewing. Fantastic. Thanks for sharing it.
