Just tried my first bottle after a week of carbing. Barely any bubbly right now but it still tastes great. I tweaked the hops schedule to make it lean a bit more toward pale ale bitterness.

Definitely will be a regular in my pipeline.

Finished this today. I ended up with 5 gallons which surprised me. I thought I was right on target.

He is turning 25, so he has done his fair share of drinking already. Still a college boy at heart though who loves his Bud Light.

This might be a good "transition" beer for him.

anyone know if there is any harm in letting this sit in primary for a month, i know the original instructions only say ten days or so? thats what I have been leaning towards, mostly, lately and gonna be busy in the next few months and not sure if i will have time to bottle it up and am still getting my kegging system put together? thanks

I'm looking at mine right now and it seems awfully dark. Is that normal?

I brewed a batch thsi last weekend at it seems a lot darker than the photo's I have seen of the finished beer. I am hoping that it just lightens up some during fermentation though...

Are you sure your crystal was 10L? I used crystal 20 this time to darken it a bit on purpose.

Are you looking at the beer through your carboy or fermenter? Your beer will look a lot darker and even a different hue when viewing through your carboy. Look at your beer when you take a hydrometer reading, this is the true color of the beer.

Biermuncher; using your advice I bottled my "rush" super bowl Centennial Blonde today. Brew day went well, however I hit 78% efficiency and ended up with 1.054 OG. Used a re-pitch 1056 3rd gen, from my neighbor. The beer tastes Great. 10 days in primary Straight to bottle. Gives me 2 weeks plus 4 days, should be fine. Will let you know how this tastes. Oh by the way the beer is slightly cloudy so I will be borrowing your "Unfiltered beer" line. Thanks again.

Mine has really started to lighten up. Took a reading and am currently at 1.010. Of course I had to drink the hydro sample...really interesting. I like it. I can't wait till this beer is done. Review coming in the next two weeks.
