Well made this last night with the neighbor, smooth brew session except the fact that we drank to much, swmbo is quite mad at me this morning, but hey the neighbor gave me a 20 lb CO2 tank for the keg setup so ummm it's all good.

I've made this with both Pacman and Nottingham yeast now. Both turned out great but slightly different. The Pacman was very clear and very clean tasting. Almost no fruity esters with a very clean finish. The Nottingham is much more fruity but a little cloudy. It accentuates the hops better and has a very lemony finish. If I didn't know better I would think the Nottingham version had lemon rind in the boil. Both are very crisp and drinkable, but I think I like the Nottingham version a little better. It's a great recipe either way.

So I'm brewing this as we speak (extract version) and just added the first Centennial hops and realized my LHBS idiot employee totally blew the hop measurements. I just added .9 oz instead of the .25. The next Centennial addition he gave me .6 instead of .25. I'm not sure if I should add it all or not. Will this beer be overly bitter now? I'm sure it'll be good, but I wish I would've noticed before adding. Ugh. Oh well.

Welcome to HBT. Sorry you didn't get a quicker response. It'll be a totally different beer than intended. It will be pretty bitter and pretty thin at such a low starting gravity. You can let it go and take a sample after it is done and then decide what to do. If you don't want to wait you could add a couple more pounds of DME to boost the gravity and add a little more body to balance the bitterness. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply

I ended up adding .3 oz on the second addition, and the remaining .3oz at 5 minutes. Should be interesting. If it sucks, I'll just have to start over!

http://www.brewersfriend.com/ibu-calculator/ Fill in the info on this page and you'll know where you are as far as bitterness. BM's recipe is designed for about 17-21 ibu. I've made Northern Brewer's Extra Pale ale recipe which calls for 2 oz of Cascade at 60 minutes and has a starting gravity of 1.045. Depending on how strong the Cascade are you end up between 40-65 ibu. It was a good beer.

In other words you just made an American Pale Ale instead of a Blonde Ale. It will be delicious. If you don't think so I'll PM you my address and you can mail it all to me.

I brewed this recipe substituting Nugget for Centennial (LHBS was out of centennial). Haven't used dry yeast in a half year, so I was pleased to find it very much alive. Came out a very nice blindfish color and I'm very excited.

Now I jut got to come up with a way to tweak it just enough so it's my own recipe :P

I just poured one of my last bottles of this brew. I bottled it 8-18-11. Still tastes as good as it did 1 month after bottling. This was the second beer i ever made and it was my first all grain. Can't believe it is still good this long after bottling. I have another batch of this that i am bottling on sunday. Hope it comes out as good. I changed up the hop additions a little on this one and increased amounts as well.
