A couple of my friends have been asking me for a while to teach them how to homebrew. So I told them we can all buy the ingredients for this recipe, and I would show them how to brew. If we were to use US-05 yeast, should I still make a starter?

Would one have to use Pale/Gold DME to get the same results in color. My LHBS carries neither and I dont do much online ordering so I was wondering if a mix of Amber and Light DME would work.

Anyone have any experience with this?

I think you'll be alright without though you may want to consider pitching 2 packs. Thats a personal preference thing though

I wouldn't use amber DME. It's got other stuff in there, like crystal. Use light DME, and follow the recipe for the extract batch.

I've brewed this twice as extract. 1st using all light DME, 2nd using all amber DME. The first batch with the light DME was the 2nd best IPA I've ever had with bells hopslam being the best(sorry yooper). The all amber brew was good, but I won't be making that again. Blending light DME with amber DME might be good, but if I ever brew the extract version of this again it will be all light DME.

MY $0.02

Edit: oh, and as far as color, this is what I got using all light DME and 1lbs of Crystal 40L steeping grains

Brewed on monday, extra quart of water (hop sponges!) and half pound more LME; hit the OG dead on. I had to use a blow-off tube the first few days; replaced with bubbler today. I am really looking forward to this one!

After one week this has appeared to stop at 1.022; a few points higher than I would like. I have kept the temp around 65 so I will probably bring it up to 70 or 75 and give the bucket a swirl or two. Any other suggestions on how to get a bit more efficiency are welcome!

raise the temp to 70 or maybe even 75 and give it two more weeks on the yeast. it might get down to 1.020 or maybe a point or two lower.

a light swirl might help. i wouldn't go crazy with that though.

I brewed up the extract version today, using all pellet hops, and when I took the OG it was barely at 1.050. I did however pour al the hops into the carboy along with the wort, could this have dropped the OG?

I don't think hops will effect your gravity at all.

How much wort went into the Carboy(gallons), and how much DME/LME did you use? Last extract of this I made using 8Lbs of DME and I got 5 gallons and an OG of 1.060.

Your beer will still be good, just a little bit less alcohol.
