Has anyone else brewed this yet? What were your results? I have the materials and will be going for it. I just wanted to see how it has turned out for others.

Ok, 1 week in the fermentor, I just added the dry hop additions, and I am at 1.016, down from OG of 1.054.

1 more week until bottling.

Did you taste it? I was just telling my husband that we need this again, as it's one of our favorites but tomorrow I'm brewing a brown ale.

[QUOTE=ThinBlueLine;3164086] The only change I made was the yeast. I'm using Wyeast 1272 American Ale II. QUOTE]

I keep 1272 around as the 'house yeast.' Also considering brewing this recipe. What is the verdict? Should I follow Yooper's lead or save a few bucks by using what I have?

Any input?

OK.
To the point. I like it and I will do it again. I am glad I did it.

Useless rambling:

I was not initially impressed by the samples I took at bottling or when I dry hopped. Because I am an impatient weenie, I started to drink these at about 5 days in the bottle. I continued drinking one or two each day because I had no other beer. The taste was improving. I had some friends over and we had a few. The beer was still OK but I was not sold on it and I was thinking I could have used the hops for 2 more simple beers instead. At 2 weeks in the bottle I had 10 left and It was obvious that the beer was improving as it should be. At 14 days I had 2 or 3. I liked them... a lot. I now have 6 22oz bottles left and I am struggling to keep my hands off so that I can see what they are like in another week. Good stuff and I wish I would have been able to wait to start into them.

This will be my first time kegging so any help would be greatly appreciated!
Yooper... hoping you could answer this question that ThinBlueLine asked. Thinking about brewing this one for me next batch. Thanks for converting it over to Extract brew.

Adding the DME... do you just dump it in during the boil? I'm still in the LME stage and have yet to dump in any DME.

Thanks!

Gary

EDIT: I was a doofus and read right past where this (in bold) was answered in the initial recipie. LOL... sorry!

Last silly question... I'm assuming this is a whole hop recipie? Even the boiling hops.

Made this today on my Kal clone Electric Brewery. Only change was just a little on the same hops to get to the same IBU. Did not have the flame out addition and will do whole hops for dry hopping and not pellets.

I use whatever I have- I think my cascades are almost always leaf hops, but my willamettes have always been pellets.
