weird. Good catch. There may have been an error in the hopville calculator for the LME ingredient I randomly picked.

Yeah, on the last page someone told me 1# DME = 1.1# LME. With that, my 6# LME needed the water to be scaled down a bit. I just dunno why I'm so far off target. . .

BTW, after 4 hours 45 mins the fermentor is bubbling (only every 38 seconds).

I only did the carapils for 30" between 150-160, closer to 160--that's the only thing that could buid the body that high, yes? But I'd imagine that's standard steeping times and temps.

i'm drinking this one two weeks after bottling.does this seem a little hoppy to be a blonde or is some subtle hop character appropriate for the style? i only ask cuz i entered it in a competition under the blonde ale category.

Brewed up a partial boil recipe I found on an earlier post for the in-laws, and it was a hit! I do have one question. I used 4oz of corn sugar to carbonate and bottled on 12/12/11 and I'm getting bottles where some are carbonated just fine and others are coming out flat. Any ideas?? I used in 12oz & 22oz bottles, where I'm getting better results with the 12's.

Bigger bottles will take more time

Why would bigger bottles take more time? If there is the same amount of headspace shouldn't it be the same? I would think the mixture of sugar and yeast would be consistent so it shouldn't matter. But I may be thinking about it wrong.

More liquid needs to absorb CO2 (maybe?)

Wait a few more weeks. My beers take longer to carb in the winter because my closet (where I store conditioning beers) is quite a bit cooler than summer/spring.
