Yes. It's more accurate so it seems reasonable. Plus I lived in Holland for 10 years.

The new batch is really really nice. I just sent it into the Xbrew Competition in Redmond, WA (EDIT: where it got 2nd of 36 entries) and it'll be in a couple NV competitions coming up soon.

If I re-brewed I'd go back to Centennial in place of Chinook and maybe de-muddle the finishing hops a touch. Maybe stick with 3 varieties so I could pick out their flavors.

Here's a pic with my latest Untappd check in. It's still carbing up. Bottled it 8 days ago and added Lallemand bottle conditioning yeast because it'd been cold crashed.

First Wort Hop - 10g Columbus 17AA
15m - 20g Chinook 12.1AA + 20g Falconers Flight 11.4AA

When I put the grains into BS I get 1.040 not 1.048. Am I missing something?

I got 87% efficiency this last time. That's probably it. Just bump up your 2 row a little if your system is less efficient.

Ah yes. Thanks I'll try that.

I'm just tasting version 3 off the kegerator. I added a couple ounces of Special Roast and simplified the hop bill a little bit. I also brewed it as a demonstration brew in the parking lot of the homebrew store I'm working at, so it wasn't my most locked in brew. Still quite tasty with great aroma. Oh, and I need to update. This beer won awards in NV & WA.

I just brewed this last night, went very well and brewed v2. I didn't have any Nelson hops so I subbed in Ahtanum in ratio to keep the IBUs the same. Can't wait to try this one. Thanks OP!

Just a follow up, I kegged two weeks ago, and finally had taps open on my kegerator. This beer is phenomenal. The malt is perfect and seems to be a great vehicle for showcasing just about any hops with a medium body and light biscuit flavors. This beer in one form or another will become a regular on my tap wall.

My batch hit 1.049, with a semi-dry finish of 1.007.

My dry hop substitutions were as follows for each of two fermentors:
10 day
2oz Ahantum
1oz Columbus or Galaxy
5 day
1oz Simcoe
.5oz Ahtanum

Thanks for the killer recipe OP! I am looking forward to my next pint(or six)!

Thanks Shotty! I tried it out recently on WLP 862 Cry Havoc and it wasn't too bad. I have a hop bursted version on WLP 008 East Coast getting its second dry hop now. WLP 028 Edinburgh worked out pretty nicely on 3 Floyds hoppy Gumball-esque beer I did recently, so I'll probably take a crack with it next.

WLP 006 Bedford is still the champ though.

OP, I used US-05 for both batches of mine, I have a ton of Denny's Favorite 50 I have grown and stored, I will probably try that on the next batch... I have some Cry Havoc as well, might do a 10 gallon split/comparison batch next....
