Last batch finished around there too. In celebration of the new batch, here's some beer pr0n from the last batch I should have posted already. It's a bit over-carbed

That there is purty.

My SWMBO has discovered a Blueberry Lager called Blue Dog. She wants me to make something like that. I have 10 gals of this Centennial Blonde ready to bottle this weekend. What do you think about taking part of this batch, maybe 2-3 gallons, and just adding some blueberry extract flavoring to the bottling bucket? If that will work, then how much extract per gallon would be the recommendation?

just curious and wondering, is there a reason you left the crystal malt and vienna out of the extract version? also, is the pound of cara-pils/dextrine grain or the malto-dextrine powder? if its the grain, does it make a difference if you use the malto-dextrine instead? how much of the powder shoudl you use instead? thanks

When I picked up the specialty grains for this the other day and realized (too late) that I doubled the amounts for a 10 gallon batch (2.5 # Vienna, 2 # Cara-pils, 2 # C-10). The grains are uncruhsed but are all mixed in 1 bag. So...I was thinking of reducing the base malt (MO) by 2# to make up for it. I know this will now be a different beer but will it be significantly different with all those specialty grains? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I did an extract version of this a while ago and loved it. I brought some out last night and my brother and his wife loved it. This is after I brewed my first undrinkable batch...a wit.... for their wedding...oof. The wit tasted like an albuterol inhaler.

I want to try a PM version of this.

Here is what I got with some quick hand calculations

3lb extra light LME (wanted 2.75lb but AHS only goes down to 3)
2.5lb 2 Row
.75lb Carapils
.5lb crystal 10
.5lb vienna

Looks good to me, Do I need to make any adjustments?

Edit *I'm blind

I'm brewing this tomorrow, my HBS didn’t have Centennial pellets, but they had whole hops. I have never used whole leaf before. Do I just throw them in following the recipe?

Last weekend, we bottled 10 gallons of the extract version of this. We added blueberry extract to 2 gallons and got about 20 bottles for my SWMBO. I hope we did not ruin 2 gallons of great beer.

Last weekend, we also brewed our first batch of all grain with this recipe. We started with 12 gallons pre-boil and the pre-boil SG was low at 1.033 or so. So we boiled for an extra 30 minutes and delayed the last hop additions. We boiled down to 8 gallons and had a OG of 1.042. So that should work.

Yesterday we racked it to secondaries and the SG was down to 1.005. Nice! We took half the batch (4 gal.) and racked it onto some nice roasted Hatch (New Mexico) green chiles. That will sit for 2 more weeks and then into bottles. Esta cerveza llame "El Diablito Verde" http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/gree...e-beer-134940/

I've been brewing all grain for about a year now. All the brews I've made have been good but this is the one that stands way above the rest.

I just wanted to go on record and say thanks for the work on this BierMuncher. Simply outstanding....

If you were standing here, I'd buy you a brew!

I made 10 gallons of this for a buddy's 30th Birthday and served this last Sunday night. It was a hit with all involved. I only made two mistakes:

1. Tried to force carb over to short a period of time (4 days)... Yes Bobby_M, poor planning on my part of course. This did however give us an opportunity to enjoy the great head retention of this beer.

2. I didn't make 20 gallons . This went quick even though I had to man the kegerator to adjust pressure and pour.

Great beer! Just used the recipe yesterday to teach someone I met at the party about AG brewing. Again 10 gallons, this time for personal consumption and the odd small gathering. And to do the carb thing over. I think set it and forget it Bobby_M. Now does anyone have a gas manifold lying around they want to sell cheap?

Thanks BierMuncher... great beer.

Cheers,
Todd
