Anyway, I followed directions from that point and hit a 1.071 OG, too high but my LHBS has been giving me 85% efficiency regularly. Anyway, even with all the mess ups this beer is the best I've brewed by far, seems very balanced. Thanks Yooper!
You made me laugh! You totally messed up my recipe, got a different OG, and still gave me the credit for the recipe.

I think that you're giving me WAY too much credit- it sounds like you made a great beer all on your own.

Yooper - great brew! My OG was a bit low but this turned out to be the best beer I've made yet. Only problem is there are only 5 gallons, I need to jump on another batch because that certainly won't last long around the house!

Thanks for the reminder! I'm making an IPA today, but I think I should brew this again next week. We haven't had it in a while.

I brew my slightly tweaked version of this recipe every other batch. Thanks again for sharing.

Currently have 2 different beers on tap and another 4 in process. With my short term memory deficiencies and pipeline, I tend to forget which beer is which.

Kegged 10 gallons on Sunday and tasted it. Absolutely fantastic. My wife tried some and agreed. THAT is the beer. "Which one is this?" she asked. "I don't know, have to check my notes."

Duh, of course it was Yoopers. This year's Cascades are delicious.

My 2010 cascades seem to have less aroma and flavor than the 2009. Maybe it's just my location, but they were harvested at the perfect time and just dont' seem to have the "punch" that the 2009 hops had. I still have a package or two of the 2009s, so when I make it again I'll use those! This is my "next up" recipe!

I'm gonna brew this sunday. looks interesting. I like using Columbus, so I'll bitter with that and finish with Cascades. I dont have any crystal 20, so I'll sub with Caramunich. Looking forward to it

General question: is the 30 minute hop that important? Could I just adjust the 60 minute to get the same ibu's? I'm just learning, and I thought 30 min hops additions were kinda pointless.

No, it's not important at all, and it is kinda pointless! That way my way of using an "even" amount of hops, and still getting the IBUs correct! I didn't want to use .35 more hops at 60 minutes, I think. I don't really recall now, but it worked out with my AAUs and so I've kept it!

I'm making this right now, as a matter of fact- just mashed in. The only changes this time are bittering with chinook (.5 ounce) and then using .5 ounce at 5 minutes instead of that one cascade addition at 5 minutes.

Ok.Just put 10 gallons of this in the fermenter. I subbed CaraMunich for the Crystal 20 and used 2 row for the base malt. I used 2 oz Columbus 12.2 @ 60, 1 oz Columbus @ 30 and 2 oz Amarillo 7.5 @ 5 min. I calculate 49 IBU's. The wort tasted great, my OG came in at 1.053
