I've got this in primary right now, my third attempt at a homebrew. Thanks for the recipe and keep your fingers crossed for me.

I'm at nine days in primary and only reading about four and a half percent ABV. There's still some activity, so I'm going to let it go a few more days and check my gravity nightly. I've got a feeling I won't get too much more though. I'm guessing I didn't oxygenate well enough before pitching my yeast. I dumped my last batch (different recipe) after carbonating because it got fouled somewhere, so it's hard not to be stressed about this one.

Brewing this one tomorrow. I didn't have a chance to stop by my LHBS before today so I don't have enough time for a starter so I'll just pitch it as is. Since dry extract is more expensive I picked up 10 pounds of light LME. My LHBS was out of Warrior so I substituted Nugget. Also, since I enjoy a more citrus flavor and aroma I substituted the Williamette with Cascade. The alpha acid percentages are the same so I kept the amounts the same. The Nugget's alpha acid is a little lower than the Warrior so I grabbed 1.2 ounces for every 1.0 ounce the recipe called for. The alpha acid for the Chinook that the store had was a little less than what the recipe had posted so I picked up 1.2 for 1.0 of that hop variety as well. We'll see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.

I know I changed the recipe a little bit but I just took the first gravity reading. It read 1.037. That seems really low compared to the 1.078 that was quoted in the original recipe. What do you guys think?

Checked this one today. I'm having a difficult time keeping the temperature down. It sits right at 72. There are no fruity aromas so I think it should be alright. The fermentation is really active. The krausen busted the lid off the airlock and it was foaming out the top. Smells incredible. I can't wait to drink this one.

I didn't record my OG but I recall mine was close or at what the recipe stated. I did record my final gravity which was 1.018.
