I just used an ounce of citra for the dry hop. I think it's fantastic as is. Ended up 3 weeks primary then dry hopped with citra for a week and bottled. I need a cold crash setup at some point.

After last nights time spent fumbling around with my all grain 2nd batch, I will reconsider the saving money aspect. The benefit of this recipe is the quickness and results.
Started brewing February 2012. Still brewing.

Going to up the dry hop to 2oz

Just opened a bottle after 8 days conditioning - BOOM! This version is my best yet. Great hop flavor, great body, awesome orange/coriander notes. It's a winner!

I just modified the base recipe with a new hop schedule.

1 oz Columbus @15
2 oz Simcoe @5
2 oz Simcoe @ flameout

The smell coming off of the fermenter is amazing right now!!!!!!

I plan on dry hopping with a couple of ounces of Simcoe more than likely.

I am really excited!!!!

I brewed the original version of this recipe about a month ago, the only change I made was that I used Safeale 05 in one carboy and the Nottingham in the other. I just pulled samples of each and I can say that I am truely impressed with this beer! What a great concept for short brew days! I personally liked the 05 over the notty, which is very contridictory for me as I primarily use notty for most of my beers. I am going to brew this again for sure! Thanks for the great recipe! Cheers!

Hi all! Love this thread, and am eager to try my hand at the shorter brew time. I am planning a 3gallon boil size, 5 gallon batch, 30 minute brew time. What do you guys think of this? Did I try to put too much in one recipe?

1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 1 11.8 %
4.0 oz Munich Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 2 2.9 %
4.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 3 2.9 %
7 lbs Pale Liquid Extract [Boil for 15 min](8. Extract 4 82.4 %
2.00 oz Cascade [7.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 5 20.8 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [7.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 6 4.2 IBUs
1.0 pkg American Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1272) [124 Yeast 7 -

Total Grain Weight: 8 lbs 8.0 oz
Working on web programming and home brewing!

So we are looking at a 2 hour brew day including clean up with a wonderful tasting hoppy yet sweet caramel flavored pale ale. And since its extract and with such a big hop bill you only need to boil the extract for 15 MINUTES!

Pours a nice copper/reddish color with a 1 finger head that sticks around leaving a nice lacing down the glass.


6lbs Light Dry Malt Extract added to the boil
1lbs Crystal 60 add the grains to the water and steep until the water temp reaches 170 and pull them out.


2.5oz Cascade 7.5% AA at 15 min
1oz Cascade 7.5%aa at 5 min
.50 oz Cascade 7.5% at flameout
1oz Cascade 7.5% dry hop 7 days after primary fermentation has wrapped up.

This beer is great with notty as I typically use notty on my beers I want to ferment on the cooler side. I imagine any clean fermenting yeast would do well. If you want some fruity esters I have done this recipe twice with s-04.
Do you remove the hops after the boil or just tip then in th the fermenter with the wort ??

I use pellets and I dump it all in the fermenter.
I just finished this, and it took maybe 2 hours with cleaning before and after. The boil is so quick, it's great, but you just have to make sure you get every thing in at the right time.
OG came out a bit high around 1.068, but I used 7 lbs dme, and expected OG was 1.065. Oh well, it'll be a tad stronger, good thing I added more hops too.
I used S-05 for the yeast.
