It was a softball sized mass and after getting my beer in the fermenter and getting rid of the hops I went oh s**t should I have left all the in there???? I know the recipe calls for dry hops so it will have some more added but just hoping I did'nt ruin the final outcome.
I didnt use a hop bag when I dry hopped or in the boil kettle. I just dumped everything straight in the fermenter. It will be just fine, you may have a cloudy beer at the beggining but that will settle out over time.

Just took an update pic from a bottle that is about 6 months old. Still tastes damn good, has cleared up quite a bit. The hop nose has kind of gone away.

That's nice and simple. I've just recruited a new homebrewer, possibly two. I'll have to pass this recipe along to them, I'm sure it will be well received to a couple of new guys cutting their teeth. Thanks!

Gents, I made this and it's easy enough for a beginner is right After being in the primary for ten days I added 5 lbs of frozen strawberries but omitted the last addition of hops (dry hop cascades) just trying something different and hopping for the best. We'll just see what happens.

While bottling this the berry aroma was quite nice but the visual was a little yucky. The berries had a funky look about them ;( kinda off color and none too pretty????? Condition 2 weeks & see what we get!!!!!

How long did you let it sit? The recipe has 30 days primary, 7 days secondary. I'm hoping for a quicker turnaround and wondered how long you aged it.

The plus is that you only have to boil the beer for 15 minutes and you are done. 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.


Grain/Extracts

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.

Hops

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.
I'm wondering why this is good in 15 min instead of an hour, any how a longer, say 30 min, boil would effect it?

I only do long primaries of at least 30 days. I skip secondaries unless I am adding fruit. The first reason is that the yeast typically need a good 2 weeks after primary to clean up the nasty biproducts that they create during primary. Moving the beer off the yeast cake doesnt give the yeast a chance to clean up after themselves. Also the longer it sits the more clearer it will get as the yeast will compact and fall out of suspension.

I typically dry hop beers after primary fermentation is done. This beer fermented for 2 weeks, then i added the dry hops for 2 weeks all in the same bucket.

This recipe was designed to be a quick turn around. With extract you are only really sanitizing the extract with the boil as the maltster has done a mash and conversion. Also with this recipe the hop amounts are upped a lot. If you were to do a longer boil you would want to adjust the hop amounts to compensate for that or you will end up with an extremely bitter beer.

Less time to brew with 2 little ones running around the house. Anyway...

I've got two "15 Minute" batches going as we speak; one with 7.5/1.0lbs of LME/crystal, simcoe/centennial/glacier, WLP051 and the other with 8.25/1.0lbs of LME/caramunich, chinook/centennial/glacier, WLP041. I'm following advice from White Labs FAQs for WLP041 Pacific Ale and trying to keep fermentation around 65 degrees F.

I'll let you know how they turn out.
