I just brewed a batch of this yesterday. It won't be the same beer, though for several reasons:

1) got a new mill and got better efficiency than predicted; ended up with an OG of 1.047.
2) because of the high OG, we added a bit more hops for balance.
3) my centennials smelled funky, a hint of vinegar and gross old cheese (I hate that HBS). So, we subbed Cascades.

It will be a totally different beer, but should be good nonetheless.

Ok OK OK....I'm jumping on the bandwagon here.
Should have the grains this weekend.
And since kegs keep going dry...I'm actually going to have to get a move on and get it brewed!

Finally got my batch of this bottled. Sample tasted excellent, and hopefully I won't get much chill-haze.

I Loved the bottle that BierMuncher sent me, so I think I'll be brewing this pretty soon! I'll probably wind up using Centennial and Amarillo instead of the Cascade, as I only have 2 oz of Cascade laying around, and I'm saving it for SNPA clone. (Got about 1# each of Cent and Amarillo still in my stash, so I'm good there!)

I might do a 2nd batch with some Magnum and some Centennial, too. Just 'cause I've got the Magnum around.

I'll probably wind up using the specialty grain portion of the recipe to build my standard house ale.... Up until now, my "house" has been SMaSH. (Not that there's anything wrong with SMaSH! )

Cross-posted from 10der & Mild Swap:


BM's Centennial Blonde:
- Aroma is heavenly! Floral and somewhat herbal, but a little sweet and honey-y too. Very inviting, even when cold.
- Color is pale straw, and crystal freakin' clear. BEAUTIFUL beer.
- Flavor is hoppier(*) than I expected! I love it! For the "gateway" beer that everyone recommends to new brewers, I was not expecting so much hop presence! I really love the flavor of this though, it's got little notes of honey and malt overtone, but does not dominate. It tastes cleaner than most commercial blondes, and there's something about the water profile that makes this positively sparkle.
Very very nice. I could drink this all day long.

(*) - BierMuncher noted, after I posted this, that the particular batch I tried was dry-hopped in the keg with 1oz Centennial and 0.5oz Amarillo. Please note.

Nugget is a great hop and a decent sub...but it is going to require some more time to mellow. Nugget can be a bit more harsh. I use nugget a lot for bittering and if you make sure to dial down the amounts...it should be just fine.
