^^That's along the lines of what I'm looking for though they label it as an Irish so it may be a little more malt forward than I'm wanting but very close. The 25 IBU is about exactly what I was...

I have come across that in my travels as well but at near 50 IBU, it'll be more hops than I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestions though. :)

Could be a jumping off point if I keep any smoke/roast to a minimum and finish it clean with a 1056 or yeah S-05 or similar.

Not sure what it is about Fat Tire but I've never been a fan. Do agree it may be a good choice for the masses though, a lot of people seem to like it. It's been a long time since I've had one but I...

Easy Drinking Amber/Red = Struggle

I thought it would be super easy to find a real easy drinking session American amber/red but I'm kinda struggling. :drunk:

What I'm wanting is a low IBU session type red (say 4.0 - 5.5 % range)...

Depending on yeast, that temp could cause a citrusy taste. I just finished a keg of CB that had the peachy flavor (US05) which was fermented in the upper 60's and that was the vessel temp. I used to...

I've dry hopped toward the end of primary and directly in the keg. Can't say I've noticed much difference either way and since the latter is easier/safer IMO, I go that route exclusively now....

+1 to this approach. I fermented at 66 and it was a little too high for my tastes. Next time for this recipe, I'll be shooting for lower 60's.

It'd be interesting to see how much the trub level settles in the next few weeks. It does seem like a fair amount of trub in that pic but as long as you siphon above it, really no big deal as others...

I pitched at about 65-66. I'm with you it sure has all the earmarks of high temp. Maybe I'll verify my temp controller probe reading with a refrigerator thermometer and make sure it didn't go haywire.

I agree, that's exactly what it sounds like. US-05. Started in mid to low 60's due to "apricot" off flavor some claim when in upper 60's with that yeast even though I've never experienced it. After...

Could add some DME as needed on beers of that size as long as you have solid results on most everything else. That beer is huge.

If you were fermenting at a fairly cool temp, you could also try bumping the temp up by 4 or 5 degrees. That might help it finish. Either way, I'd wait another week and see what gives.
