Is the reason the extract version doesn't use caramel and vienna just because they are only there for colour in the AG version and that the extract provides enough colour?

Thanks
Ayup!

First Wort Hopping your Beer

Brewing beer with first wort hops (FWH) is a method I have used extensively for beer brewing over the last few years to improve the character of many recipes. First wort hopping produces complex bitterness and aroma that is both smooth and pleasing to the pallet. The method has become quite popular with homebrewers and microbreweries over the last 10 years due to the pleasant and complex flavor produced.

FWH involves adding a portion of the hops to the boiler at the very beginning of the sparging process, allowing these hops to steep as the sparging completes and remaining in the kettle throughout the boil. Add the hops to the boiler as soon as you have finished recirculating the first runnings


I received Brad's email & thought about doing this recipe with adding Citra hops to the First Hop schedule. Would there be another more beneficial hop addition? I've heard that Magnum goes well with Centennial & Cascade.

What do you guys think?

I would brew the recipe as written, but move the bittering addition to first wort hop.

Agree. It is pretty tasty as written. I FWH most everything I brew. I don't really know if it makes a difference or not, it's just what I do...

I agree the recipe is excellent. I've brewed it like 8 or 9 times already..................... but I like to change things up a little. Experiment. Brew magazine says Magnum is a great compliment to Cascade & Centennial. I've never had Citra.

The Wyeast 1056 is a nice change, raspberries were fantastic, the additional dry hop of Cascade from Sloose is up tomorrow.

I like to keep 1 blond on tap while I try some others. BM's Black Pearl Porter w/ Vanilla Coffee is fermenting right now!

Just kegged this one yesterday after a 2 week primary. Racked it onto some gelatin so hopefully it'll clear up while its carbing up. Taste was great right out of the primary!
