Tapped my batch this weekend for a UFC party, was a big hit with everybody that tried it. I did a late addition of sweet orange peel to my boil, and then served with a slice of lime floating in the beer. This stuff loooooves citrus and the flavor came out great. Looks like I'm going to have to add another tap to the keezer dedicated to this, since it's going to be the new house beer I think.

Edit, now with beer porn pics:

I decided to make this my first all-grain brew. Since I don't have the equipment, I decided to do BIAB. As the water came up to temp, I dropped the grain in per BIAB instructions and let the mash come up to 158. At 158 I flamed out and stirred up and then lidded it. 10 minutes later, as I opened it up to stir some more, imagine my surprise to find the mash at 175. I got it down with cold water, but the damage was done. Low OG, high FG, and a bitter bread taste after 7 days in the primary.

SO, lesson learned. Next time I'm going to just hit it with strike water per Beersmith and mash it in that way, sort of a modified BIAB. Just ordered the ingredients and look forward to brewing it AGAIN in the next few days.

Brewed this last night, experimented with a late extract addition.

Woke up this morning expecting some action, but nothing. Pitched with dry notty, didn't rehydrate. I'm so used my US-05 which is usually off and running within hours.

i know the secret to this recipe in the centennial hops but i dont have centennial and am brewing this saturday. So i was going to replace the centennial 55 and 35min additions with cascade. any opinions on if i should use simcoe or mt hood as the 20min and 5 addition? im also using 34/70 lager yeast for 5g, german ale/kolsch for the other 5g

Haha, if that's the case, just brainstorm your own hop schedule. Do what you think would taste good.

Just give it a little time, it'll bubble away.

I've given blonds oranges before with success, but never just the peel! I could have had my orange and eaten it too!

Drinking my first all grain of this recipe as I type. I did a partial mash before and the all grain seems better.

It has only been 16 days since I brewed it and it is delicious. 12 day ferment, rack into keg with gelatin and force carb at 30 psig. Another 2 days at 12 psig in the fridge and it's good to go.

This is a great, easy beer for when you want a quick turnaround.

After 72 hours it blew up.. I had to throw on a blowoff tube. Finished out in less than 48 hours.. wow! I thought my US-05 was vigorous.

Default Centennial Blonde Ale extract experience


I brewed up a 5-gal extract batch of this Saturday (the extract version posted on home page). I think I forgot to measure OG, but being the extract version I'll go with 1.044. 2x 0.5oz doesn't seem like enough hops, but I'll avoid the temptation to mess with success.

I pitched a single packet of reconstituted (0.25l H2O @ 82F; 15 min) Nottingham's Ale Yeast at 68F, after titrating with cool wort every 5 minutes to avoid temp shock.

As the Chinese say, Ho Lee Fook. Fermentation lock was bubbling almost constantly after 12 hrs, temp up to 72F. Put it in a 60F water bath to cool it down; stabilized at 68F. But still it attenuated to 1.010 in under 72 hrs. I guess the yeast like this recipe as much as everyone else does. Now the bubbler is all but silent. Tasted (OK, drank) the hydro sample last night: clean and dry. I was expecting Tooty Frooty after the high-temp fermentation, but no esters to speak of. Wort was cloudy and very carbonated. Looking forward to seeing what happens over the next couple of days.

Pretty exciting and FAST results, though. Thanks BM. I'll add my 5 gallons to the "how much brewed" thread once it's in bottles.

Cheers
