Just bottled today. Tasted great. A lot of grapefruit came through. Drank a whole glass warm and uncarbonated.

Brewed this about a month ago, came out really nice and great hop taste! I backed off on the crystal 40 though, seemed a bit more than I have a taste for (used 1lb instead of 1.3). Thanks for the recipe!

Looks great! How did you dry hop? Just drop them in the carboy or do you have a way of suspending them in the beer?

Brewing this next weekend... but I'm especially excited to use my homegrown hops for it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I'm hoping some of you more expert brewers can help this 1st timer. I tried to stick as close to recipe as possible but ran into a few snags and am curious how this will impact the final product.

Mashed in 5.3 gals on 17.6 #s of grain @ 169*. Grain was 65* and cooler w/ false bottom @ 60*. It seemed very soupy? After 10 mins temp was 147*. Over the course of an hour I added varying amounts of increasingly hot water (about 1.5 qts all said and done) and got maybe a 1* raise. Fearing too much dilution I took off 1.5 gals from mash tun and heated it to 189.5*. I poured this back in and stirred and got to 154* in the mash tun. I let it sit for an hour (temp held steady) then drained. Like an noob I forgot to do an iodine test.

I then batch sparged using apprx 6 gals @ 175*. This took mash tun to 159*. I stirred and let sit for 10 mins then drained.

Collected apprx 8 gals in BK.

**Other changes to the recipe:
- Added the 90 min addition at flame-on. (FWH, right?)
- Added 1.25 oz Simcoe at 0 mins instead of 0.75 it called for.
- Added ~0.8 oz. Medium Toast Hungarian Oak Shavings (per LHBS)
- my gravity reading was at 1.060 instead of the 1.076 beersmith2 predicted

Collected ~ 6 gals in a 6.5 gal bucket. Re-hydrated 1 packet of US-05. Didn't see much action in the jar. Pitched anyways. 24 hours later little to no action in bucket. See picture. I went ahead and bought another US-05 from a diff LHBS and pitched it tonight. It looked better in jar but still not amazing. Trying to ferment w/ blow-off tube in a chest freezer @ apprx 66*.

My main concerns are:
- what the hell will all this do to the flavor? I've had some bad luck with extract brews in the past.
- the taste concerns me a little. Smell is good. The sweetness is nice and I know that will ferment well. But the end/aftertaste is super bitter. like.. mouth puckering. I'm a hop-head and all but dayum. Any thoughts on how this will end up in 3 weeks after being dry hopped and kegged?

*I'm so thankful to anyone who can offer insight into this. I know I'm just a nervous nancy but I've had bad luck in the past and I'm worried I flubbed up again. What should I have done different (other than pre-heating mash tun)?

I honestly bet its fine. Two yeast packets fine with that OG. You will get your system down in future so you can mash at the temp you prefer. Tough to gauge when conversion happened, but possibly at a higher temp than you wanted. In which case it may not get to the FG that you wanted. Then again, only 10 minutes high and then at 148? So might be fine. And even a slightly high FG won't be worst thing in the world, may work with the bitterness you tasted.

I ended up mashing for 1 hr at 148 and then 1 hr at 154. And like like the newb that I am didn't do an iodine tincture test or take a gravity reading. I mashed at the higher temp because I assumed only mashing at 148 would give me a dryer less sweet beer which is not what I wanted. Does that make sense?

Yes, but after the conversion happens at 148 for the hour, not much else is happening at the hour 154 mash. Maybe a bit more conversion. That said, I really don't think there is any harm done. Lots of folks mash IPAs at 148 to make them drier and less sweet.
