Really beginning to irritate me. The taste is one thing, but not being able to figure out where its coming from is the real irritation.
If you post your process and equipment someone is bound to figure out whats going on.

OK, I've posted my process and equipment in a separate thread as to not hijack this one. Anyone who feels like trying to help, my new distress thread is at:

Yeah I think the other thing was the Target hops I had on hand. I used those in another recipe here and it has the same powerful hoppy flavor even when I tuned the recipe down a notch. I expect that this beer will turn out well with age too.

Hopefully I can brew this one again soon but I have to pack and move during christmas. (sucks)

I did this one tonight, 5 gal all grain. This is on the heels of the bee cave brew haus pale ale I did this past week. It wii be nice to have both in kegs soon. I had a couple hic ups but I hit my og/fg and the wort was probably the clearest I have ever seen. It's fermenting away at 65 now in the basement.

Wrapped up my brew day in under 6 hours...not really impressive, but I was pleased considering a had a completely stuck mash with my HERMs...that's never happened before and I tried two new things today, one of which was probably idiotic. First, I used a paint strainer bag and wrapped my false bottom to see if it kept more grain and crud in the MLT and the second, which was dump all the grain into the MLT while I was filling it from the bottom rather than wait until all the strike water was pumped in and then mix the grain in. Oh well, I nailed the OG and everything worked out.

Pumped to see how this tastes using MO instead of 2-row.

Brewed up a 10 gal batch of this today. My 1st 10 gal brew. Did an overnight mash to cut some time off my day. What an amazing success! Hit all my numbers dead on, quick heats,waking up and firing your SPARGE water rather than your mash water is awesome! I'm using S04 + starter on this one with similar hope of it being done & delicious by NYE. Been wanting to brew this one.
Hafta confess though. I upped the base malt a few pounds and asjusted the recipe to suit. And I tossed about an ounce of roasted barley into one of my tuns after vorlauf.
My blonde just got dirty :]

No need for rice or any other adjuncts with this beer. The recipe as posted is always a crowd pleaser, but I read good results with MO and wanted on try that as I'm into seeing how different grains affect flavors.

Having a three vessel HERMS system, my sparge water is ready as soon as I go from mash temp up to sparge temp, usually less than 20 degrees and that goes quickly with a 5500w element.
