I made my first batch of Centennial Blonde a few weeks ago, and it is awesome! Such an easy brew. I let it sit in primary for three weeks and then it went straight into a serving keg. I will definitely be brewing this one over and over. Thanks Beirmuncher!

Plan on doing a double batch of this for a wedding... The only downside.. LHBS had limited Hops. I was able to pick up Mt hood and EKG. Hope it will work out with 20 gallons.

Tested the SG 6-FEB-13 and it is at 1.000. I'd call that done. It tasted great! Nice and light, with just a slight bitterness and citrus flavour from the hops.
I'm going to cold crash for clarity and then bottle sometime this weekend.
Can't wait to try the finished product in about a week!
UPDATE: This batch was bottled 9-FEB-13. I tried a bottle 13-FEB-13 (10 days from grain to mouth!!!) and it was carbed & very drinkable! It has a wonderful malty/bready/biscuity flavour with just a touch of bitterness and some citrus flavour from the hops. I drink this at room temp but will try some in the fridge just for comparison. This will most likely become my go-to recipe when it comes to a light quaffer beer with quick turn around. I would not change anything about this brew.

Thanks again BierMuncher!

Not undrinkable but not good either. A few days later it smelled way better, which lifted my spirits! I really do think it is just a result of the early sampling.

Brewed this using us-05. I was quite disappointed when I first tried it. I think all the really positive reviews for some reason made me think it was going to be a very hoppy beer. Stupid thought I know, because the recipe doesn't call for a lot of hop additions. Once I got over this stupid expectation I began to really enjoy it. Nice flavor and a perfect subtleness to the hops. Definitely going to brew this one regularly!!

Just wrapped up my third batch tonight (1-5gal and 2-10 gal). My first batch was with Nottingham, my second was with US-05 and this batch was pitched with a pint of 1272 (from cream of 3 crops i kegged today) in each 5gal. I have made this for birthday parties and weddings, it is a definite crowd pleaser.

Did a double batch of this yesterday. From start to finish it took 9.5 hours. Took this photo towards the end of the day.

Had the party that I brewed this for last night... People were trying to find containers to bring it home in after they took all four of my growlers! Delicious and fast! A definite crowd pleaser!!

I have the opportunity to pick up a bag of Maris otter. What would that change if substituting for the 2 row? I love this as is but this deal is too good to pass up.

Maris Otter will give it a richer, somewhat toastier / maltier flavor than just plain 2-Row - but is certainly an OK substitution to make!
