How come no one mentions how much better AG brewing smells than extract???

I had a great time even though I only had the capacity to make a half batch (2.5 Gallons). Now I need to finish College so I can have the room for full batch's.

Recipe was:

6lb's Maris Otter

Boil 15 mins 0.5 oz Simcoe leaf 13.0
Boil 10 mins 0.5 oz Simcoe leaf 13.0
Boil 5 mins 0.5 oz Simcoe leaf 13.0
Dry hop 7 days 0.5 oz Simcoe leaf 13.0

My efficiency came out to about 65% which is alright to me considering it was my first time and was using an electric stove.

My LHBS only sells hops in 2oz increments so I said why not make a super hoppy Pail Ale. Now it's time to go back to Extract

Sorry no pictures, I was too busy

I had a pale at a local brewpub the other day that was supposedly 100% Simcoe. Was pretty damn tasty IMO. Let us know how it turns out!

Sounds like a Simcoe DIPA. They are really good .

My mash temp was pretty irregular, but on average about 155f. I just used US-05 because I'm going to use the yeast cake from this for an Imperial IPA.

This recipe is relevant to my interests. I LOVE M.O. and Simcoe and that Weyerbacher Double Simcoe is heavenly (and at $12 a 4 pack it damn well better be!).

I've never brewed with either, so I'm pretty excited. I've heard Simcoe has a piney taste to it? I usually stick to Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo, Zeus, and Summit.
