Just got 2nd place in category 15 at the Oregon State Homebrew Comp with this beer, with a few minor alterations:
Grain bill the same
WLP300 yeast (2nd generation)
1/4 oz perle @ 45
1/2 oz perle @ 15
First 5 days of ferm temps: 72, 75, 72, 68, 68
90 minute boil
Sat in primary for 2 weeks, then kegged and sat at 70 ambient for another 2 weeks.
I have brewed this beer 5 times now, usually only changing the hops and fermentation temperatures (no temp control), I am very impressed every time. Thanks for the recipe Ed!
