Did you ever brew this? I am interested in making one now. My recipe is more like...

10.25lbs 2row
1.25lbs Flaked Barley
1.25lbs Malted Wheat

Was thinking more of Nugget for bittering and finishing with Sorachi Ace for a lemony citrus aroma!

I'm going to be making this one as a nice spring ale for my Birthday in April. I figured it'll be a good beer that everyone can enjoy.

How's that going to even be possible? Brewed yesterday, kegged today and drinking it tomorrow? Am I reading that correctly?

Odd phrasing, I think.

Kegged last night. Brewed sometime before.

Be interested in how this turned out.

Cheers

There's the brew-day video I did of it. I'm currently having a pint of it after having it kegged for little over a week.



I tried to clear it with Gelatin, but as you can see, it didn't do much if anything (assuming I followed a good set of instructions). It's nice, light and fruity. I cut down the amount of bittering hops by half, to lessen the IBU's so most will like it. The subtle flavor comes out as the beer warms but I could see myself drinking this on a hot summer day. It would be a great beer to have on tap during the warmer months for sure.

March/ April Brew your own Magazine states " when the first bits of foam form at the begining of the boil, removing the chuncks of coagulated protein from it with a strainer can improve the clarity and flavor of your beer."

I've tried this with my last two brews but have not gotten to the bottling stage yet to seee if it helps.

Any advice on this out there?
