Has anyone made this with Wyeast 1272? I have some on hand and am wondering if it would work well with this recipe. What do you guys think? Thanks.

Not to be another me too, but...

I want to add my voice to the growing chorus of satisfied people that have brewed this recipe. As I write this I'm enjoying the first glass of it, a 10-day in the bottle, nicely carbonated, malty AND crispy bit of, as someone else put it, "liquid sunshine".

I paired this recipe, which I followed pretty much to the "t", with soft water per the Water Chemistry Primer, having added to the recipe 4.3 oz of acidulated malt to lower the pH of the mash, plus the calcium chloride to the water (I adjusted all the water, mash + sparge). Soft water definitely works for this beer.

Also, I temp controlled it from pitching through bottling, including a cold crashing.

Thanks BM for posting the recipe and BM and everyone else for all the comments, etc. Very helpful. I was concerned I had selected a "too naked" beer for my first AG adventure, but it worked out quite well, far beyond my expectations.

just got done with my first AG batch (BIAB method) (7th total batch) and figured this would be the perfect recipe for 1st AG attempt

i upped the 2 row and vienna a little and adjusted the hops accordingly expecting lower efficiency but ended up hitting 1.047 with 5.4 gallons in the bucket - which beer smith shows as 70% efficiency

the mash was reading at 149+° most of the 75min mash but after i removed the grain sections of the runnings were reading 154ish - i had mashed inside the oven and am thinking it may have heated up the bottom of the pot when it kicked on towards the end of the mash - i guess i'll see how much it affected the body when its done

really excited to see how this comes out - thanks for sharing the recipe

The photo makes this more amber than it is in real life, but it sure is a purdy glass of beer

I brewed this today and just got it buttoned up and pitched with 05. I'm wondering if LHBS might have given me something other than crystal 10, it looks BROWN. Nothing even resembling a blonde. I should have watched them pull the grain. Anyway, should be tasty even if it's brown.

What type of modifications should I make to the 5 gallon recipe if I were to use the Brew In A Bag method? Would the grain bill stay the same?

Wow!

Brewed a slightly modified recipe (subbed Weyermann Munich for Vienna) on April 4th, it's kegged, carbed and tasted fantastic as of the 17th, used US-05 in lieu of Nottingham.

Very impressed with the turnaround time on this beer, ended up so crazy busy with work that I let the pipeline sit too long and was down to 2 gallons of drinkable beer, and nothing fermenting. So I brewed up a batch, was shocked how drinkable this is under 2 weeks.

Will definitely brew again
