0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (5 min) Hops 1.4 IBU
1 Pkgs Nottingham (Danstar #-) Yeast-Ale
So with the extract version, you really don't add any hops until 15 minutes into the boil?

Since I'll likely be doing a late extract addition, this means I'll be boiling about 2 lbs of DME for 15 minutes before anything else is added?

Just trying to get my ducks in a row before brewing this weekend.

Yes.

You'll steep the carapils, get your water volume you need, add the DME, and start the boil. After 15 minutes, you start your 1st hop addition.

Ready start another brewing season with this great recipe. I am going to go with S05 this time around with plans of using the yeast cake to ferment an IPA in two weeks...it's been a long summer need to get some kegs filled.

I stopped by the LHBS this afternoon and picked up the ingredients for this. Here's what I ended up with when putting it in Beersmith:

1 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
5 lbs Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM)
0.25 oz Centennial [8.70 %] - Boil 45.0 min 7.1 IBUs
0.25 oz Centennial [8.70 %] - Boil 20.0 min 4.7 IBUs
0.25 oz Cascade [7.10 %] - Boil 10.0 min 2.3 IBUs
0.25 oz Cascade [7.10 %] - Boil 5.0 min 1.3 IBUs

Estimated OG - 1.041
Estimated FG - 1.009
Estimated IBUs - 15.2 (a bit low, no?)
Estimated SRM - 5.7 (Guess it's a bit high since the DME I got is not extra light)
Estimated ABV - 4.1%

I ended up buying 6 lbs of dry extract due to how it was packaged at the store. If I add this, Beersmith says I'll bump it up to 4.9% ABV, OG 1.049, 6.4 SRM, and down to 14.3 IBUs. Would you also bump up the hops to help balance the added extract? If so, how much of Cascade or Centennial would you add and when? I have 1/2 oz extra of each.

I'd like to keep it reasonably close to the intent of the original recipe since this is my first time trying out the Centennial Blonde. Not sure if 6.4 SRM still qualifies as a blonde.

Brewed this back on the 1st, and decided it would be my 1st kegged beer since I plan to serve it at my 1st annual Oktoberfest party today. It's been in the keg a week now, and tastes REALLY good, but it's hazy for some reason. Since I'm new to kegging, it's probably something I did, but the good news is people will be drinking it from a solo cup, so it's not a big deal

Looking forward to seeing everyone's reactions to this and my other homebrews!

Mix a packet of Gelatine with 4 oz. water, heat to around 155-160 F. Stir it up and throw it in the keg. Purge the keg with CO2 and swirl. Let it sit a day or two and pour off a very cloudy pint. The next (and every following) pint will be crystal clear most likely!

How'd it turn out. My guess is that it was clearer after the first couple of pints. If not, it will be nice and clear in few more days, IF it lasts through the party

Thanks for the gelatin idea. Unfortunately the party starts in just a little while, so it's too late to try it. And I'm not expecting much if any to survive the party

This is my latest batch. I don't use gelatin and usually keg at about 10 days and its is cloudy for about a week. This has been in the keg for a while but it was clear after about a week in the keg
