I've noticed 2-3 weeks in the bottle and the bitter/rind taste really mellows out. Drinkign one as I type this.

Ok cool..your a lucky man drinking one. However the day I get back from Mexico, my beer should be ready! So hopefully it will be the perfect ending to the trip.

I plan on brewing this soon. What do you think of using danish lager yeast with this recipe? I will have a yeast cake of it soon, not sure if i should use it or stick with ale yeast

A buddy's brother tried this and asked if I would sell him 6. Unfortunately it's all gone but will certainly be brewing it asap.

I've got a lot of friends interested in trying this batch. I feel like I'm only going to get a 12 pack for myself. I need to make bigger batches but my kettle only holds 8 gallons. Stupid apartment size is hindering my process here.

So, I've read through all 29 pages of this thread and I am so completely psyched to try this recipe at the end of this month (hopefully will see some good watermelons at the market by the time I need the juice.) But... my space situation is limited and I can only do partial mash recipes.

I downloaded the trial version of Brewsmith and plugged in all the numbers from Dubbel Dach's v5.0 recipe on his website and then clicked 'Convert', made it into a Partial Mash in a 'Pot (4 Gal) - Extract'. The program did all the math and gave me the following:

Is this correct? It upped the Cara-Pils to 1lb 0.7oz and the hops to 0.64oz (why?). Also, it's giving me Wheat Liquid Extract, but I'd rather use Dry... what is the correct amount of Dry extract to use?

Hey Johnnyhamer,

I checked out Brewer's Friend's calculator, but it doesn't have a converter. I remember doing this manually a few years back, but it's been 2 years since I've brewed seriously.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
