So, I hit 72-75% efficiency... not too bad for my first all grain... my CPVC manifold I just made worked great... nearly zero vorluf required... I used slots and cut them using a bandsaw...

How long did it take for everyone krausen to fall? Its been fermenting for 9 days now and its still got a 1/2-1" layer of foam... it was fairly agressive after about 12 hours for a good 36 hours. Am considering taking a FG reading tonight and kegging it up, but just wasn't sure about the krausen...

I usually check mine at a week or so to dry hop. US-05 is is done and has dropped by then.

Thanks for this recipe, I just kegged 11 gallons of this but used Cascade instead. This is by far the best beer I've made in 4 years. Cheers.

Well, guess the yeast isn't going to drop, but fermentation is definitely complete at 1.01-1.012... going to go ahead and rack between the sediment/top layer and keg it up tonight.... Going to dry hop in keg with pantyhose...

Awesome beer! I'm originally from ridgecrest, ca, so I was stoked to brew this one, and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.

I've got this kegged now for about 6 days and its still super duper cloudy, almost muddy looking... any suggestions? Should I toss in some gelatin?

I'm not sure about "fixing" the beer at this stage, but if you didn't use irish moss in your boil, consider it next time.

Gelatin can do wonders and it's real easy to do in a keg. I should clear out anyway but it could take a few weeks.
