I brewed this last thursday, kegged it from primary yesterday, force carbed overnight, and just pulled the first pint.

It's a little green, a bit cloudy yet - but good, very quaffable.

That's good beer, from grain to glass, in 9 days!

Solid Biermuncher, solid.

Great to hear it.

Pace your self on this batch and get another going. It'll be popular.

So BM, I know you mostly FWH you're bittering hops and add you're finishing hops at knockout now. Would you do that for this beer?

THis was a traditional hopping (60 minutes and late additions).

FWH would work great with this though, since the Centennial is a higher alpha. It would make the beer a bit more mellow a bit earlier.

Gonna Brew Sunday and try the extract recipe. I have some Carapils at a 7.5L or some Briess Dextrine at 1.5L. What would you reccomend between the two.

Thanks

I brewed this a little over a week ago... took a hydro sample at 1.011 and it tasted phenominal right out of the primary. Cold crashing for a week, then into the keg to do a high pressure carb at 30psi.

I'd lean toward the 1.5. Keep it lighter in color.

I had to replace the Centennial with Columbus, and reduce the first hop addition due to the higher AA% ...

Thanks, that is just what I was thinking. Light is good and summer sunshine rules. I will let you know how things work out....

Here's this brew after 10 days in primary and 2 weeks in the keg:

The glass is a little scratched because it's kinda old-I stole it from Rennie's in Eugene on my 21er in 1991. But the beer cleared very nicely after a week or so in the keg.
