I'm not sure if I'll brew it quite this way next time though. The dry hop schedule ended up kind of convoluted on accident. But... that's the way it was brewed so that's how I posted the recipe, mistakes and all.
Yeah, I think I might just do 10-14 days dryhop. I'm worried about leaving it for much longer than that.

I'm really not sure what effect my odd schedule had. I'm thinking that the 4 days in tertiary could have mellowed things out after the 18 days on the hops. So a shorter dry hop with no tertiary might end up with a similar finished product.

Yeah, I'll be using all whole leaf hops too so there shouldn't be a problem with the mess. It's pretty easy to rack off of whole leaf hops without sucking up a bunch of hop matter. Any little bits that do make it to the keg get sucked out in the first pint or two anyway.

I'm glad you're kegging this. I'm really anxious to hear how it comes out for someone else.

Schweet! You're the first one to make this as far as I know.

I'm excited! Not only is this an award winning recipe, but it will be my first experience with honey malt. I gave it a taste before crushing and it had a very unique sweet/sour flavor, not unlike honey. Should be great in a beer. My hops are whole leaf and higher AA% than yours so I think I'll adjust the bittering addition so that I can keep the late additions the same mass-wise and still get the same IBUs.

At 85% efficiency, my AG grain bill is as follows:

5.2 lbs crisp maris otter
2 lb. weyermann vienna
1 lb. gambrinus honey malt
0.5 lb. british crystal 75
0.5 lb. flaked barley

Denny's favorite 50 yeast in place of the pacman.

My cascade whole leaf is 7.6%AA and my whole leaf amarillo is 9.5% AA so I'll have to adjust the 60 min amarillo addition down a bit to get the same IBU while maintaining the size of the later additions.

Well, you usually get a bit more out of pellets than whole leaf, so they might translate directly as they are.

I loves the honey malt. I used it after trying Mighty Arrow and finding out they use it in there.
