Gosh darnit! Batch #5....1.054 @ 80* and today, at racking, 1.008@ 65 (8 days in primary). So I'm at 6.4%. I used 5lb even of Light DME but I didn't expect it to hit that SG. I love this beer but I can't seem to nail down the gravity on a consistent basis. Taste is pretty stable and I've always used US-05. I gotta figure this out. Still, one of my favorites and one of my first ever brews.

Hot damn, this is a great beer! I did a dry hop with some left over noble hops and now I call this my German Pale Ale. The original recipe is fantastic and this is now on my keeper list (this makes number 4 out of about 20). So if I want a noble pale ale or if I just want a German Pilsner Ale this is my go to recipe! Thanks for sharing.

It IS a great beer! I have made this my unofficial house brew....again, I'm still having trouble stabilizing the gravity, though. I follow, in general, the original recipe but the last ounce of hops (.5 of each) I add to the primary just before sealing it. So I basically dry hop in the primary for the 7 days.

To be honest, I wasn't sure if that was the OP's intent based on the directions where he said he adds to the wort...when I transfer normally, I use a strainer/filter and catch most of the hops in that process.
