Am doing a 10gal batch of this but i replaced Munich 10L with some reg. Munich and I cut back on the CaraAroma a little to. I think am going to brew this tomorrow I'll let you know how it turns out. I got a pound of Cascades so if it comes out decent I'll brew it again and dump it on the yeast cake.

Would you have to rack the 2ndary if you use gelatin? Like if you use a keg as a 2ndary or would you have to rack in another keg?

I would probably rack it again, but thats just me. I like my beer clear.

I picked up the stuff to make this last weekend and got around to making it tonight. I did a partial mash. I changed up the hop schedule and amounts to lower the IBUs to about 38. I had the US-05 ready to go and at the last minute I decided to rack my steam beer to a secondary and pitch this batch on the San Fran Lager yeast cake. I'm just curious as to what it would taste like so I did it. I'll let you know how it comes out.

My brew day was a little disappointing. For whatever reason i missed my mash temp by about 8 degrees. So i was mashing around 147. First time i haven't hit my mash temp +/- 1 degree. So my efficiency suffered but i think it will turn out fine.

Well I brewed 2 weeks ago and my OG was a bit low but I should have noticed that you based yours on 80% efficiency, I got only 67% even with using 3lb of DME. I'll just have to adjust the next go around with a pound or two more base malt.

Once question, I see you do an 8 day primary, 7 in the secondary then keg. I was wondering how long yours normally takes in the keg till it tastes right.

I don't know -- maybe a week in the keg ? Basically just long enough to get some carbonation.
