Magnarillocent Amber - bronze medal
This one is tried and true guys and gals. It's a great West Coast style American Amber. Hop forward but balanced. On the dark end of the style's range with a great malt complexity.

preboil of 12.9 gallons came in at 1.046 on par with 88% mash.
1.053 @ 11 gallons = 86.5 brewhouse. Chilled to 79, pitched US-05 Dry, one pack per carboy. Put in ferm fridge at 66F.
Transfered to secondaries on 6/29/08 (8 days in primary) to make room for barleywine partigyle racking. Krausen had mostly fallen out.
Checked FG on 7/3/08 - 1.014 temp corrected from 66F. Taste is balanced, non cloying, no off flavors. Hop flavor is just slightly forward like a West Coast Amber. Color is exacly what I was going for. Clarity was excellent for only being 2 weeks old. Racking to keg next weekend would be fine.
Racked to two kegs on 7/7/08. Nice flavor. One goes in the kegger at 13psi.
Awarded Bronze at Hilton Head Heroes Competition (first non dry hopped version)
Dryhopped second keg with 1oz Centennial Leaf on 11/7/08 and bottled for Splitrock competition.
Tasting notes 11/12/08. Dry hop vegetal astringency has mellowed. Amazing hop aroma. This is by far the best beer I've made to date.

Looks great Bobby. Can I talk you into sending me the BTP file so I can actually remember it and put it on my list of future brews?
Attached it to the first post.
Thanks, Bobby. Downloaded the BTP so I can get it in the pipeline.
By the way, that 2oz of wheat was just thrown in because I had exactly that amount leftover. Feel free to skip it.
An update.. I entered this at Splitrock fest and competition and it scored two 39's though it didn't place. In any case, it's a fine beer.
No, that was a total mistake on my part. It must have been an earlier file before I commited to the hop schedule. I need to look for the final file and repost.
hop additions at flame out?
