I brewed this (modified) yesterday - my first all-grain batch. I hit a gravity of 1.042 and filled my bucket right to the 5 gallon mark. Modification - my LHBS didn't have centennial hops, and the cascade he had was 6.9%. So, I bought an ounce of that, and used a quarter ounce for each of the later two additions (as per the recipe). For the earlier two additions, I used a quarter ounce of the cascade supplemented with ~.05 oz of some warrior hops I've got. I'm sure it won't be exactly the same, but it should be quaffable. It was bubbling away nicely this morning!

You'll probably notice a lack of Centennial hops this year. According to the NB rep in my area, Bells and another brewery bought out the Centennial harvest for whatever reason. In response, NB had a "Centennial Type" hop that I used in my last batch with great results.

Probably Founders. Have to keep up that Two-Hearted and Centennial IPA production.

Maybe we will see more Bravo usage. Here's to hoping!

Thanks for the info, pvtschultz. My LHBS will be interested to know that; he thought he should have had some centennial when I came in looking for it, and was wondering why his supplier didn't ship it. I'll pass this info along to him.

Took another sample last night to see where we were at. It's by far the clearest beer I've ever seen after 8 days. Holy cow!

Default Different hop combinations


I've brewed this a few times and LOVED it! However I'm trying to foray into trying different hops in recipes I know and I wondered what other combination might go with this type of beer.
I have some Saaz that I've never used before, but is that something that is recommended with this type of beer? Anyone else have any ideas?

Well, day 24 (7 days in the keg) and I decided to pour a pint. Freakin metallic taste! Can't figure out what went wrong. Using SS pot....Malt was 2 days from store in sealed bags ( they don't have loose grain). Water profile appears fine and I've never had bad taste like this before.

Depressed.....

Had to swap out the airlocks from my buckets for blowoff tubes today.

Figured this would happen with how much wort I got.
