Will do. I think I'll cold crash it for a couple days before I keg it to keep as much yeast out of there as I can. Do you wait to carb it until after it conditions?

Nah, there really isn't a difference to leave it flat while cold conditioning from what I understand... except maybe it will keep you from sampling as much

Cold crashing this now and will be racking to a keg to condition in the next few days. Only got mine down to 1.010 but also overshot the OG (1.053). Hydro sample tastes really clean and delicious.

That sounds awesome! Mine really attenuated way more than I wanted it to, I think 1.010 sounds good!

Neal, on the recipe builder at BMW you have 1.5 oz Tettnang for bittering and 2.0 here. Which one is right, or do you do both?

I brewed this yest (1.5oz 60 min), fermenting away at 63F now.

Just aim for 28.5 IBU at 60 minutes (or whatever the recipe here says). I had to adjust on the brew builder because the AA of Ed's hops were different.

I ended up at 1.054, a little high but my final volume was 5gal, not 5.5. Since I used Ed's hops I should be fine on the IBU's.

This is my 6th AG, I'm still figuring out my equip. This summer with large grain bills my temps would come out high, yest (though warm) with a 10# grain bill my temps were lower, I was down to 149F after mashing in so I quickly added 1/2 gal to get my temps up to around 151.5 or so. I'll throw this on my keg in 3 weeks and lager for 5 weeks. Um, new years eve beer?

Sounds like a good one, I look forward to trying it!

Did you do anything to the water?

Just 5.2 stabilizer. I had to hook a blow-off tube yesterday, even at 5 gal and plenty of head space. It seems to have subdued as of this morning. Thursday (4 days after pitching) I'll raise the temp by 1F per day until I get to 68F. Looking forward to this one, my first Kolsch.
