Did you turn off the heat when adding DME? It's a good habit for two reasons, it prevents boilovers while you stir in all the DME to mix it, and it keeps dme from burning on the bottom of the pan.

I plan on making this over the holidays if possible, but need a larger brew kettle and an immersion chiller.

The secret to easily blending DME into water (in addition to killing the heat) is to use a wire whisk. It works really really well to break up those clumps and get everything dissolved.

Just kegged this. Hydro sample tasted amazing!!!!


I had a few thoughts and wanted to bounce them off you guys.

Question#1: could you do the math and use something like magnum for the first hop addition and get something close to the same flavor here?

Question#2: how about Simcoe, columbus, or falconer's flight hops in this recipe? Seems like a good idea to me, but wanted some other thoughts on this, might be a reason it doesn't work well.

Question#3: glacier hops are very similar in AA%. Has anyone here tried this recipe with glacier?

Thanks for your input!!!!

The simple answer is that you can use any hop that you like the flavor of in this recipe. The key to understand is that, since you are only boiling the hops for 15 minutes you need a lot of 'em, and that a lot of the flavor will be left behind.

Recently brewed a 5 gal batch with 7lbs of LME (instead of DME) and WLP001.

It turned out okay, but not nearly as good as the DME version with S-04.

Have a 3 gal batch bottled conditioning right now that was DME and S-05. I will report back the results.

Hooray beer!

Brewed this tonight. Super easy. I used Amarillo during the boil and added a little Crystal 120L to give it a little more color. Also used a Kolsch yeast. I changed the first hop addition from 15 to 12 min (based on Beersmith) to bring down the IBUs a bit for SWMBO. I will dry hop with the cascade in a couple of weeks. We'll see how it goes. If all goes well, this may be a regular in my keezer. Thanks for the recipe.

I've been thinking of trying the same. Post the recipe you decide on when you give it a try (if you don't mind, of course). I would like to see what you come up with.
