Just brewed this today, had to use WLP 001. LHBS ran out of safale 05 yesterday

Clarity was outstanding and I nailed the OG. First time making the syrup and it was super easy! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe, I'll report back in a about 5 weeks or so(after it's bottle conditioned)

I brewed this today too. Final volume was really low. But after topping off my gravity was great.

Used S04 fermented around 62. Came out great, a little more malt forward but still balanced.

Just plugged this into BS and have a question for anyone who has brewed this before. The IBUs are at the top of the scale at 40 relative to the style guidelines while the OG is at the bottom of the scale. So, does this beer come out on the hoppy/bitter side or is it actually malt forward with an overriding caramel flavor? Hope to brew on Sunday and was hoping to give to some friends who are not really hop fans. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

It really is a mild beer. My version wound up well-balanced and not too hoppy. Caramel is there, but not obnoxious. I actually think it's too mellow, but I am in the minority on that. And really, can you go wrong with 52 pages of people who've brewed it?

I'm going to rack today, been in primary for three weeks, and add gelatin. I was thinking about racking into the keg then I could put it in the kegarator to keep the temp down to help with clarification. I've never racked to a keg before and was wondering if this is okay to do?

Or you could back off the hops a little...I use 0.5 oz Chinook first wort, then another 0.5 plus 1 oz Willamette at flameout. Comes out around 23 but still has a pleasant hop flavour. Or you could go somewhere in between.

Thanks guys. I'll brew it as is. Sounds like it is not too choppy.

Wyeast 1007 works great for this beer, too, I've use both S-05 and 1007 and prefer the latter. Finishes a bit less dry if you prefer a more malt-forward beer.
