First taste test!

I've kept the keg at room temperature and under pressure for the last week, although it definitely needs another day or so to come up to a decent carb level. Pours a moderate copper/orange (slightly dinge-y...), not enough carb yet to judge head retention. Nose is maaaasive! Very floral, maybe some notes of clover honey or, strangely enough, pipe tobacco. The taste is excellent, some tropical fruit (maybe mango?) with a clean finish that isn't too sweet or dry and a very slight alcohol warmth. It could possibly use a little more in the malty-ness area, but not a tremendous issue.

Overall: very refreshing and clean for being such a big brew. Will let this guy condition for another few days in the kegerator before trying again, but I'm happy with the way this one turned out.

Quick side-note: this thing is taking an eternity to carb up for some reason. Haven't touched it in a week and it's barely holding a smidgeon of head.

Is your hop bill for a 5gallon boil? So I would need to adjust it for a 2 1/2 gallon boil

Made it. Love it. Had some slight variations in the recipe that I'll post later.

1 hour, 4 gallons
Added half of total LME

Simcoe hops

5 minutes (+55)

Top off 1 gallon to make 5 gallons.
Pitch 11.5g (package) us-05 + 1 extra tsp (rehydrated)
Ferment
19 days @ 63F,
Dry hop - 10 days
Chinook hops
11%, Pellet 1 ounce
Simcoe hops
13%, Pellet 2 ounce
Cold crashed 3 days.

FG - 1.016. Didn't get OG, my hydrometer literally broke as I was taking it.

Force carbed over three days. Have had on tap for a little over a week now. It's super sweet and super hoppy. I would like to maybe use a starter or more dry yeast next time and get this down to 1.012-1.014. The simcoe flavor is amazing and definitely gives off a sweet citrus flavor. More sweet than orange, maybe more like a grapefruit. Little bit of lemon flavor. The caramel 20 is awesome and balances well with the bitterness. I'm not going to skip the corn sugar next time because this could be a bit drier tasting. I'll dry hop even more next time, probably another oz of simcoe and an oz of sorachi since I left that out of the dry hop. Also going to add one more bitterinf hop and going to scale the crystal 20 down to maybe just 1lb. Overall this is the best beer I've made so far! Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to see how this continues to develop and to brew again with the alterations I mentioned above.

I brewed this one with a different hop bill and I have to say its great! I replaced the 30 minute addition with simcoe and replaced the amarillo with citras, and then dry hopped with cascade. The simcoe and citra are by far the most pronounced flavor in it, the bitterness is almost akin to the bitterness of a grapefruit. Either way, great recipe I would highly recommend it!

I just got this going this weekend. I used the second version (maby post 47?) All I changed was the hops. I used germen magnum, centennial, and cascade. I also used a 1500ml yeast bomb. I pitched yeast at 12:45 pm today, at 3m it was bubbling away once a second. Now at 6:30 I had to get rid of the traditional air lock, because this bad boy is about to irrupt!!!

Woof! Amazed to see this one is so popular, and even more so to see someone made an all grain version! Will have to get around to trying this whenever I garner up enough courage to put the 2 mash tuns that I made (almost a year ago...) to use.

Just bought the ingredients for this recipe... Can't wait to try it. Sounds amazing.
Going to do a small variation... Hops from the first recipe and the LME and crystal from the second.
Can't wait!
Just wanted to stop here and thanks you for sharing.
Peace

OK, so I just got done kegging this. Heres what I did, and the numbers I got out of it. On my hydrometor ( I think that's whats called) it says I only have a 3% potential ABV.... can that be right????

crystal 40L - 1.5 #
US 2 row - 1.5 #
D.M.E Pilsen extract - 9#

60 min boil, grains soaked for 30 min.

1500ml Yeast starter - WPL001

HOPS
German magnum 2oz. @ 60 min.
Centennial .5oz. @ 20 min.
Cascade 1oz. @ 15 min.
Centennial .5oz. @ 15 min.
Centennial .5oz. @ 10 min.
Cascade .5oz. @ 5 min.

Cascade .5oz. @ 2 weeks (for 7 days)
Centennial .5oz. @ 2 weeks (for 7 days)

Total ferment time 3 weeks
OG 1.090
FG 1.020

Does everything look right here? I think the ABV turned out to 9%,, does that sound right?

thanks for the recipe! smells great so far!!!
Jason
