Beasticles - I'm going to try this one myself, although the IBUs look a bit high for my tastes. On reflection - would you suggest any changes? Cheers

I loved the way it came out. It's hoppiness is not overpowering, certainly leaning more toward a pale ale than an imperial. The combo of simcoe and amarillo is stellar. Give it a shot and let us know and mods you made and how it came out.

Hello, fairly new brewer here.

I've always heard not to dry hop for longer than 7 days. What is it like with the 14 day dry hop? Would it be much different to dry hop for only 7 days?

Hop how you like. Damn the critics. If it works, do it again.

Is this necessary? I've only brewed 2 batches of beer so far, and in both cases I just pitched the dry yeast. I have no experience in making slurry or using bru-vigor so I am just wondering how important this is, and what are the benefits to this as opposed to pitching dry yeast. Would there be any downsides to just pitching the US-05 without making slurry?

You can pitch dry just fine. After a while you can start trying slurries or move up to liquid yeast and make starters. But it's not imperative.

Just out of curiosity, what would be the effect if i increased the amount of crystal malt?
