Had this a couple weeks ago, just before going to class (which TOTALLY didn't affect my learning) and then again tonight. Pretty interesting beer, great hop flavor and aroma without being overly bitter. Could see it being a great daily drinker.

So, I'd like to make this one. According to the NB website profile, it's two-row, wheat, rye and flaked oats for malt bill. For hops, Centennial, Cascade, Sterling, Willamette and Glacier. I'm thinking something like:

9 lb 2-row pale
3 lb wheat malt
2 lb rye
0.5 lb flaked oats

0.50 oz. Centennial 10.5% @ 60 min
1 oz oz. Cascade 6.6% @ 15 min
0.75 oz. Sterling 6.3% @ 15 min
0.75 oz. Willamette 5.5% @ 5 min
0.75 oz. Glacier 5.5% @ 5 min
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% dry hop
0.25 oz. Sterling 6.3% dry hop
0.25 oz. Willamette 5.5% dry hop
0.25 oz. Glacier 5.5% dry hop

Clean yeast (WLP-001, US-05, etc)

OG 1.061
FG 1.015
IBU 39
ABV 5.9 %
SRM 5


Really not confident in the hop schedule... any thoughts?

The claim this to be a medium-bodied beer, and it probalby is, but if I was brewing it myself, I think I would like it better if it finished up somewhere around 1.010 or 1.012 from 1.061. I think it would be a better drink wtih a little crisper finish.

Yeah, it's actually pretty damn crisp and light-bodied for an ale... I'm thinking maybe mash around 151 for better efficiency.

Not yet, no, ended up getting too busy! Maybe this summer... might make a pilgrimage and try to chat up some of the brewers first though
