Thank you for your answer. I went to my LHBS today and they had both the Cascades and the Williamettes in pellets and whole. I went ahead and got pellets for the boil, and whole for the dry hop in the secondary. Picked up Wyeast1056 as well. The cat that runs te LHBS said this recipie looks really good and wants to know how it turns out. I'm gonna brew this up (extract brew) this monday.

Thanks again!

Gary

I prefer pellets for dry hopping because I don't lose as much of the finished beer through absorption into the hop material. I use a hop straining bag or a spider in the boil, so I generally use the whole hops there when I have them.

Anyone else?

Using my Kal Electric Brewery clone I adjusted my ingredients for 90% efficiency. I mashed at 151 and collected enough for a 90 minute boil. Got starting gravity of 1.058 and now fermenting away at 68 in my ferm chamber.

This one is rocking in the primary, using a serving hose as a blow off, it is putting out 4 bubbles per second for 2 days and now has slowed to 2 bubbles a second.

Just got this settled into the Primary about 2 hours ago. My OG was off a tad... don't know if that's cuz I did the extract brew vs. AG. But as Alfred E. Neuman would say "What, me worry?"

Lookin' forward to seein' this beer through to completion.

Well... this went to bottle about a week ago. Like always... I do a one bottle "QA" test after about 5 to 7 days in the bottle.

Even for doin' an extract brew with specialty grains... this is the best beer I have brewed to date. Lookin' forward to it coming to completion in another 10 to 14 days in the bottles.

I'm gonna do it again, and change the hop bill, and see how it tunrs out. Thinkin' maybe Centennials and Fuggles.

Thanks Yoop!

Gary

Tomorrow morning I plan to brew a slightly modified version of this. I'm keeping the hop schedule, but I'm doing a partial mash. Here's the grain bill.

4 lbs Briess Golden DME
3 lbs Marris Otter
1.5 lbs Crystal 60L
1 lb Munich 10L

Safale US-05

It ought to be similar-ish, I imagine. Maybe a little light on the color, Promash says 12.7 but boiling the DME might get it a little darker. I tend to get 50-55% efficiency, so I should be around 1.052 for my OG. Wish I could figure out how to up my efficiency, but that's another thread. Excited to brew this.

Brewing up this one tomorrow. I ferment in the basement and the ambient down there is about 60F, so I went with the US-05. Really looking forward to having a solid Amber this summer for when a lighter ale just won't cut it.

I've got this on the boil right now. Will be using some harvested Wy1450.

Been drinking this for over a week now. Pretty nice brew. I'm going all-grain so maybe later this year I'll brew up the recipe as originally written. I'm sure mine is a bit different, it's got a light caramel taste and a bit of a hop bite. I also went a touch high on the ABV, but it's pretty easy to put down a couple pints!
