Trying out this recipe, using Columbus for bittering and WLP007.

For the dry hopping, I have leaf Centennial. I typically use a muslin bag tied to 2 heavy stainless steel table spoons. This keeps the hops immersed, but floats them enough that I can grab them out of the keg before I carb it.

Question for people who have made this, my plan is to go for a long primary (3-4 weeks) then rack into the kegs and dry hop (man cave should be around 60-64 degrees by then) Remove the dry hops after a week or so and then carb. Any problems with this approach? Or should I build a liquid to liquid jumper and rack under pressure to another keg?

That's basically how I plan to do it in a few weeks myself. Although to be honest, I'm probably not going to bother removing the DH. I wouldn't go through the trouble of that latter option unless you really just feel like trying it out .

I brewed this recipe yesterday as my first AG batch. Missed my OG by quite a bit. Came in at 1.051 and was hoping for over .070.

I think my problem is that I collected too much wort. Have to be more exact next time, but this was my first batch. I'll learn.

I finally did a side by side of the clone I brewed and the real deal.

-Clone was slightly more bitter (I got a little happy with the Magnum and ended up putting a full 2 oz in, which probably has a little to do with that.)

-The real Ruination had a slightly stronger hop aroma and flavor. Just slightly.

-The real Ruination had a thicker, more dense head, with slightly better head retention. The clone had a good head, just not quite as thick and creamy.

That was about it. Color was spot on, clarity was pretty close, with the clone having just a little haze to it, but just ever so slightly.

I don't have a judge's trained palate or anything, but these are the things I noticed.

Here's my effort, keg at 4 weeks. Attenuation a little less than expected, but still good. Beer was pretty constant close to 65, maybe needs to be a little warmer? Thought my mash was on, so maybe a bigger starter next time to drop it a couple more points:

Just kegged the original poster's recipe last night. Initial taste is really good, even though that this was my first AG batch.

Worst part was getting the hops out of the 5 gallon glass carboy! I was sweating like I had just finished a P90X workout!

I brewed a ten gallon all grain batch of this about five weeks ago. Its been bottled for a week. I had a pretty high efficiency so my brew finished at 8.7%. Hope its good! I used Wlp002 english ale yeast. The hydro samples were great!

This beer is getting great reviews from my friends, who all happen to be beer snobs.
