When transferring to a keg, I ended up with a little extra, so I filled two 22 oz bottles. I still haven't made room in my kegerator yet, but I drank the first bottle last night and boy was it good! It wasn't very clear, but that doesn't surprise me considering that I poured the last inch or two of beer out of the carboy into the bottling bucket and I'm sure I got a lot of trub into the bottling bucket and I didn't take the time to let it settle back out.

But if this is any indication of what the 2 kegs are going to taste like, I can't wait! Thanks for the awesome and quick recipe!

Default Hops substitutions?


My LHBS only had northern brewer and willamette. Do you think 1/2 oz of NB @ 60 and willamette for the other additions would be horrid? I hate this "shortage".

Funny you mention that. About my third batch of this I wanted to mix things up and did a Northern Brewer Blonde. It was every bit as popular. The NB lends a bit more minty tone to it and it's nice and crisp. I love Willamette and they'd be just fine.

If you're doing a 5-gallon batch, do 1/4 oz of NB at 60 and 30, then 1/4 Oz of Willamette at 20 and 5.

If you have Beersmith or another program, plug those AAU's in and try to maintain a 17-20 IBU level.

It will taste good with those hops.

Didn't get to brew last weekend, but this will be put on tonight. Could you give some direction on mash and sparge water? Is 1.33 qt/lb about right? Thanks.

I'm not overly exact on water/grain ratio, but keeping it within that 1.25-1.35 area will be fine.

I like to mash this on the lower side to get a cleaner, drier finish. If you can hold this between 149-152, that would do it.

Default Ill try it again


I tried making this beer. I'm new to all gain so I think I screwed it up. I know it was green when I tried it, but the tannin taste was beyond believe. I don't even think ageing would have fixed it. I still drank the whole thing. After the 4th glass the taste was tolerable.

I have high PH water at my house and I think it could have extracted too many tannins in the mash. I made another all grain 2 weeks ago using spring water and didn't get that beyond believe tannin taste.

I cant wait to try this recipe again after I get more experience.
