Has anyone substituted Cascade for Centennial? I brewed this up about 4-5 weeks ago, and just tried it. followed the recipe but had to sub Cascade (LHBS was out of Centennial).

Maybe I'm used to stronger, heavier beers, or maybe this wasn't right, but it was just 'okay'. I got rave reviews from the one guy I know that likes the domestics...I dunno. I guess I'll save what I have left and give it away when someone comes a-knockin.

brewed mine up today, followed original recipe all the way. Hit my numbers right on. I did a starter with some washed nottingham, the starter almost blew out the sponge stopper i use so I expect this to be a violent fermentation and fast, which is what I am hoping for.

This is definitely a beer that BMC drinkers should enjoy. A way to lure them over to the craft beer side. You could always add more base malt and/or mash higher to get a little more body. I love this recipe, I'll never make less than 10 gallon batches of it moving forward because any beer drinker can enjoy it.

Agreed, any less than 10 is setting yourself up for "Where'd it all go??".
It's an easy beer to make, doesn't cost a ton in ingredients, and the recipe as posted is perfect.
And I'm a big-beer hophead. This was one of the first all-grain beers I did a few years back, and when I made it again, I realized that it's perfect for summer.

Just got done bottleing this. Used all Centennial hops, hit the OG. Sat on the yeast cake longer than I was hoping, and got FG of 1.005. Tasted the sample, and its good so far. Pleased since this was 2nd AG, 1st that turned out.

Had a family gathering last weekend on my wife's side. My FIL is a world traveled beer connoisseur and he LOVED this one. Followed the recipe exactly and used my soft Seattle area water. I'm drinking some now. Still watching the gallon lager version clearing up before I bottle and carb. Haven't tried it at all since it's still very young.

Do you think a dry hop blend of cascade and centennial would be a good addition?
