This was my first all grain brew about two months ago. It came out great! Got a few compliments from people, including one of my friends who was amazed it wasn't a store bought brew.

Just made this recipe last night! I was impressed that my LHBS had every ingredient on the list as well. Tried out a new home made counter flow cooler. It was only 25ft long and used only fresh tap water to cool. Brought it down from near boiling to 91 degrees with one gravity fed pass. We need to add a pump and recirculate the water through an ice chest. I think I can improve efficiency there a bunch.

To anyone that has made this and dry hopped, how long did you dry hop for and how long was it in primary before you dry hopped it?
Thanks

I dry hopped at 1 week, and continued to let it sit in the primary for another week, then bottled.

I don't claim to have any real reason to dry hop the way I did, I just only had one fermenter at the time, so I dry hopped after I checked gravity for a few days and it wasn't dropping any further, which was 1 week after brewing. I let it sit another week, then bottled.

I dry hop with one week left before bottling.

I bottled this brew two weeks ago and cracked open a bottle a week early to see how it was goin. Amazing brew. Definitely my best finished product AG thus far. Simple recipe but has a great all around balance of malty sweetness and enough bitter hop aroma from the cascadian hops. will definitely brew again. hints of burnt coffee that I love about Guinness.
