Made a version of this, slightly modified to be a partial mash with ingredients I could readily source, plus 6# of fresh sour cherries. So far tasting good. Excited to see how it turns out!

ok so im gonna give this a shot as my first all grain brew!! went and picked everything up today at the lhbs. Had to sub the Caravienne Malt (22.0 SRM) with carapils/dextrin malt, and i decided to use cascade hops instead of the Williamette to try and get a lil more citrusy flavor. Hopefully it will still turn out as good as everyone says this brew is! wish me luck!

This is an easy and cheap beer to make. My girlfriend and all the other ladies that attend our weekly brew night love the oblivion out of this. I am going to have to make another batch soon!

Not bad, eh? Pretty crystal clear.

This is my second batch of this. Both times I used bottle harvested Bell's Winter White yeast.

Yup. This was a favorite at a party we threw. People literally stood in line to get more.

Brewed a batch of this with sour cherries. Unfortunately, it seems to have picked up an infection, so I'm leaving it to sit until it's decided whether to veer off into "good" or "terrible" territory.

How did it turn out with cascade? I just brewed this on Saturday (first true all grain!) and had to make a few small changes to match the LHBS inventory. I also added orange zest. Looks and smells delicious. Can't wait to try this in a few weeks.

it turned out GREAT!!! I would say it's the best beer i've brewed yet!!! my wife loves it which means ill get to brew more often haha. Took some of these to an invester meeting for some guys i know starting a brewery and all the investers there loved it. All the women kept coming back for more. The cascade gave it a good hint of citrus. Dont think ill really change anything from what i did. Ill be brewing this again in a few weeks.
