I read the article given. It's informative and basic knowledge IMO. I'm not worried about the malt sweetness as I feel this beer is supposed to have a nice malty character. The fruity flavor was overwhelming and I kinda figured it will tone down a bit with age. My brew isn't sweet, just fruity. I will check for flavor once again when I rack. Thanks for the input with the article and the experience with the yeast.
Cheers

I have had the ingredients for this beer sitting around for months now. I think I am finally going to have time to brew this weekend. I picked up the yeast yesterday. Had to go with Wyeast 1187 Ringwood because they were out of WLP007. I'll report the results

I'm going to try this on Sunday as my first all grain. Without a stir plate it looks like I'll need a giant 3L starter! I'm thinking I'll have to do a step up, starting Friday night? This is all relatively new to me.

Suggest reducing the Amber unless you like really sweet.

Back down to a 1lb? Or somewhere in between?

The Amber is about 7% of total grain bill. It's a matter of taste but I would drop to 3-4%. Beyond that think the grain bill needs more adjustments.

I went with the original recipe until I can try this for myself. Can I get some guidance on how to calculate my efficiency? This was my first AG, and I did a BIAB. I measured preboil gravity at 1.041 @ 170F, and again postboil at 1.089 @ 70F.

According to this calculator, I seem to have ended right about the right spot... does this mean I hit 70% efficiency? If so, do I thank the double milled grains or just dumb luck??

My first all grain was this recipe. I ended up hitting 72% efficiency and I was very happy. Sounds like you are on the right track.

I'll be stepping up my starter tomorrow. I want to make sure I pitch plenty of healthy yeast since I have heard that ringwood can be finicky.

Hey scottland, I thought I'd pass on some info. I'm headed to DFH's taphouse Sunday and went to see what was interesting on tap. I noticed in the description of DFH 60 minute that it is made with "Palisade and Simcoe". I suspect the scarcity of Amarillo forced them to change the recipe. I'd bet Warrior is still in it for bittering, but it might be nice to re-brew this with Warrior, Palisade and Simcoe. Just a thought.

Finally brewing this today. Supposed to be in the mid 90s today so it's gonna be a hot one! Luckily I have my fermentation fridge set up and ready to be used for the first time.
