Brewed 11 gallons of this on Sunday and am officially going to Lager it. Recipe I used was as follows:
14# American 2-row
5# Flaked Corn
1.5# Crystal 120
Buttload of rice hulls
1oz Cluster @ 60
1oz Cascade @ 30

Mashed at 150.
OG: 1.052 (better efficiency than expected)
IBU: 18.5
Fermenting with WY2007 (Pilsen Lager) and S-23
Can't wait to see how this turns out as an actual lager.

How much, approximately, it a "buttload"? Just so I can get as close as I can...

I fermented this as a lager using Wyeast Bavarian Lager. I used the initial recipe, fermented at 50F for two weeks, and took it up to 65F for a one week diacetyl rest. Lagered at 30F for four weeks. Did a blind tasting with the LHBC at one of our group brews and got several BJCP certified members to give me feedback. Great example of CAP, but dinged on the color.

I did notice that the corn flavor was pronounced at first, but after 28 days lagering, it blended well and gave almost no DMS or vegetal smells/Flavors. Nice beer. Will brew again, but in larger quantities.

I'd throw in between 1 and 2 pounds in this. 1 pound for a 5 gallon batch, 2 pounds for a 10 gallon batch.

I just have a 32oz or so cup? that I use to help measure grain that I filled up, and then rinsed and added to the mash tun. Perhaps buttload was a poor unit of measure. I will try to improve going forward.

BTW- diacetyl rest currently in affect. Lagering to commence shortly. Probably at least a good 4 weeks. Need to take a sample to see how we're looking.

Made my first batch for the winter. Made my first oops. Used wlp 080 which I thought was a larger yeast, turns out its an ale yeast. Will see how it turns out. I know someone asked about using an ale yeast.

Holy crap I am so glad I found this. This will be the second brew i make when I get home. During this deployment I have made quite the list of beers to make and this just jumped to number 1 but it will be the second one i make becuase I already have a stout kit that was free waiting to be made. Thank you!!
