Ahoy hoy,
I have 2 5 gallon batches working right now. One will go in the fridge to crash for the keg transfer friday, the other, I just did a couple days ago. Now Ill see how an oz of sweet and an oz of bitter work compared to 2 of either. I think I also went 60L on the first one, then back to 20L on this last one. I sure love this stuff. I have had an abundance of leaf cascade i got cheap right before the shortage, and now that its flowing again, ive been wanting to burn off the older stuff. Sufficient motive to make OC if you ask me. Soon as it warms up around here and i can get back to propane, Ill do 10 gallon batches, keg 5 and bottle 5. I havent let anyone but the wife have any, as I know what will happen. Once i have a stock in, Ill share
Right now Im out of everything, sipping a deschutes bucksaw brown. Sorta like watered down porter, but not too bad....
A great day to you all.

Making my second batch of this today. I am going to use pacman that i harvested from a prev batch of DFH 60 since i have about 10 half pint mason jars with pacman. Hope it turns out as good as my first batch.

I just bottled my first all grain batch of this. I added some fresh orange zest to the secondary with the dry hops. All I can say is when i transferred it to the bottling bucket the aroma of hops and citrus was amazing. I can't wait to try this version.

Ahoy hoy,
after 4 days on the gas, I gave my OC a try. This is the first one i used both sweet and sour orange, as well as 60L crystal as a variant.
WOW....
And I think that pretty much covers it. I can drink that stuff all night till i nod out if im not careful. I just cannot believe its drinkability. I have to watch myself with this stuff. Lordy its good. I look forward to getting home and after getting all chores and travel for the day done, its beer O'clock! Yummy. Goes great with most all foods. Last night we had bacon eggs hash browns and french toast for dinner. The OC played off the syrup like magic. When your beer tastes great with breakfast style meals, you know you have found your house beer.
A great day to you all!

A friend and I are giving this recipe a shot on Saturday as our first all grain brew. I have a couple questions.

1) We're substituting US 2 Row for the Maris Otter. This _shouldn't_ change things too much should it? I haven't plugged it in to Brewsmith yet but that seemed like a reasonable substitution.

2) We're also using WLP001 instead of S-04. I noticed the recipe calls for two packets of that. Should we be using two vials of the White Labs yeast then? I know someone who generally uses two but being someone new (< 10 brews) that's kind of uncharted territory for us when it comes to yeast.

Thanks for any input people have. We're pretty excited about our all grain beer so I want to make sure our ducks are as lined up as possible when we start.

I have never used more than one packet of yeast in a brew, including this one. You will be fine with one vial, though Id make a starter for any liquid yeast.

Agreed, I only pitch two packets because I am lazy. Definitely make a starter as the Pol mentions above.

I just purchased a 8 gallon pot so I can start to do some stovetop all-grain batches, and I'm going to give this beer a whirl (hopefully this weekend.) I may sub in Amarillo for Cascade though, becuase I've been wanting to try making an Amarillo pale, and Amarillo is cheaper than Cascades at my lhbs at the moment (I'll be stopping by tonight to see what they actually have in stock though.) I may drop the orange too to let the hops shine more, and I'll probably have to reduce the hopping in the boil a bit to keep it out of IPA land...ok, so I guess I'll be doing a brew inspired by this one
