Don't know about the water part, but the cascades will give it a little bit of a different aroma and flavor, but it should still be quite tasty! The amarillo hops really come through in this one, but it'd be good with all cascades too. Just slightly different.

Ok - cracked a few of these tonight while bottling Ed's Apfelwein. Nice beer. I can see why you were awarded with this one. Lots of flavor and decent ABV makes this a great sessioner over here. Thanks for the recipe! I recommend it. I'll only do PMashes from here out so this is a nice recipe to branch out on since I'm only brewing APA's of IPA's these days. Stoked to have a few 12'ers of this for the next couple of weeks.

Cheers!

Glad you liked it. I'm a little worried about my most recent batch. Tastes a little funny. Not quite sure yet if it's just green or has an off flavor, but I send it to NHC anyway.

Just tried another one. The odd flavor is gone. I was hoping it was just green. Hopefully the bottle I submitted for NHC cleans up just as well. This one had a week out of the fridge that one didn't have.

I brewed this a few months ago. I cracked the keg open May 1st, and it was cashed by last night. That was the fastest I've gone through 5 gallons. Therefore, excellent job on the recipe. Thanks for posting it, bro. Cheers!

I just cracked my first bottle of this open last week and tried it, it was great! Only my second brew ever, I think I'm going to buy another fermenting bucket and go ahead and make another batch this week. Thanks for the recipe!

Just tried this again last night and ended up drinking a 6pack. This is only my second brew and I may be biased since I brewed it, but damn it's some tasty stuff. I fermented at 74deg (the temp of my basement) with Notty and there are no off flavors that I can taste after just 2 weeks in the bottle. I would recommend this to any newb looking to do their first partial mash.

I brewed it again, except all-grain this time. I cracked the keg open last night, and it's a homerun. Several people have told me this is their favorite beer that I've made so far. Friday night will be a good night because of Kabe's Secret! BTW, we're definitely a couple of SW nerds for knowing who Kabe is...

hehe while I AM a SW nerd and know of the Cantina regular... in this case Kabe is my dog. He's the one with the secret associated with this beer.
