The key for this beer is to mash no higher than 152, so it attenuates well. The balance of hops/malt is key. The water profile used here was very good, balanced, with low alkalinity, and the beer is clear with so4. Control fermentation temperatures to minimize fruity esters, or use s05 if warmer. If underattenuation is a problem for you, use Wyeast 1056, or WLP001 which is "clean" and attenuates better than S04.



This beer is a hopped up amber- but with the willamette and cascade combo it's not as aggressive as some hoppy beers can be. I've made it several times, and like the clarity with the S04 but it needs cooler temps or it can get estery. S05 works well with this beer, but needs more time to clear than S04. If unable to keep fermentation temperatures under 64 degrees, I think S05 would be a better choice!

We like this beer alot- and it's now a house standard. I got willamette at $6 a pound, so wanted to use it in something that I can enjoy 10 gallons of. This is it!

Sounds delishy. Nice use of Williamette, one of my faves. I fish the Williamette river here in Oregon all the time. Ill brew this to kick off the bass fishing season. Thanks Yooper!

Nice looking recipe Yooper. I have a pound of Willamette just waiting to be brewed!
Care to tease us with a pic of a pint?

Any tips on converting this to a 5 gal extract batch. I just picked up a bunch of local gown willametts and cascades and this sounds perfect. Thanks

The last keg kicked in Texas, a few weeks ago, and I'm not brewing it again until next week. But I'll try to remember to post a picture in about 6 weeks!

Sure!

3 pounds Munich LME (Northern Brewer has it)
3 pounds light or extra light DME
1 pound crystal 40L
.75 pound crystal 80L

Hopping the same- but use the FWH as bittering hops. You will want to add the LME at 15 minutes in the boil.

I lowered the crystal, because sometimes extracts don't finish as well so I cut the crystal. I'd also suggest using a yeast like pacman, which is a workhorse to help beers attenuate better and finish with a lower FG thatn S04 would.

Thanks Yooper I can't Wait to brew this. One more question, do I keep the hop amounts as well as the schedule the same. Also thanx so much for the extract conversion as I am a noob ant this will be my first non kit batch. Are the dry hops added together for the last 7 days ?

Yes, the hops amounts and schedule would be the same. And I add both varieties of the dryops at the same time together.

I've seen several recipe lately that call for Williamette and this thread helped finally make my mind up. I just put in an order at Hops Direct and included a pound of 'em so this recipe's definitely on the list.:rockin:

Hey, I'm drinking this beer now! It's very young- brewed on 3/19! But we're drinking the first keg of it. Here is a picture:

It's sorta dark in here, so the flash makes the beer look cloudy. But it's nice and clear!
