Batch Size: 5 gal.
Boil Volume 3.5 gal.

5 lbs. Extra Light Dry Extract
2.5 lbs. US 2 row
1 lb. Victory Malt
8 oz. Caramel 20L
1 oz. Columbus (14.2%) for 60 min.
1 oz. Centennial (9.7%) for 20 min.
.5 oz. Centennial (9.7%) and .25 oz. Cascade (6.3%) for 15 min.
.25 oz. each of Centennial (9.7%) and Cascade (6.3%) for 10 min.
.25 oz. each of Centennial (9.7%) and Cascade (6.3%) for 5 min.
.25 oz. Cascade at flameout

I used the DB method and mashed low (I aimed for about 148, and I think I was a bit lower than that) which helped me hit 1.010 FG even with the extract. My measured OG was 1.060, but I don't think I mixed it well after adding top up water, so it was probably a couple of points higher than that. Assuming my measured OG was right, that puts me at about 6.5% ABV, but it was probably closer to 7. Estimated color from beersmith is about 8, but I was probably darker than that because I didn't do late extract additions, but it definitely is not too dark.

The yeast I used was actually from New Holland Brewery, but I have heard that they use Wyeast 1056.

I just opened one of these last night and I was very excited about how well it turned out. It is going to disappear way to quickly and I hope to start another batch soon.

When I brew it again, I will do late extract addition to keep the color lighter. I also might dry hop with another ounce of hops. Probably Cascade but possibly Centennial. I probably won't change the grain bill at all, but I may mess with the hops schedule just a bit to dial in the flavor I like.

This will be the first beer that I enter into a competition and I hope to gain more feedback from that. Unfortunately the competition is going to be a little farther away than I'd like, so the hops flavors might fade a bit, but I'll update to let you know how things go.
