So if I'm going to do this as extract, should I use the Cara-Pils or maltodextrin?

Brewed the recipe on page 16 (well a variation of it) a couple weeks ago (14 days in the primary currently)... looks good so far! Dryhopping beginning on Tuesday and going for a week.

I think that is the same recipe that Crypto posted on page 2? This is the recipe I have been using as well. Just brewed my 2nd batch using this recipe yesterday!

I'm down to about a 12 pack of my first batch of this recipe and it has been fantastic!

Brewed a slight variation on the extract recipe posted and here it is fermenting happily at 72-73 degrees off yeast harvested from Bell's pale ale. Can't wait to try it!

That's a bit on the warm side! Hope it turns out!

I say this because I've had my best results with this style fermenting around 65-67F. Some amount of ester production is OK, but a clean ferment is much preferred over that.

Just my $0.02

Yeah I usually right at or below 70F but I've read that to get the closest match to an Oberon flavor with Bell's yeast you should ferment it warm around 72F so it will give off esters that you want to match the flavor

Thinking about trying this recipe I found on another site, using yeast out of a fresh 6er of Oberon. Any thoughts about this?

Default Hey Donzi

I like the looks of it. But no reviews or discussion on that site that I can see. It sure looks to be nice and easy...which is better than the decoction manuever. I say you try it and me being somewhat local - I can judge it for you - I'll have one (12oz.) of the decocted version on hand as well.

It would be interesting to hear the results from that recipe.

Personally, I've been happy with the results from making this beer using Crypto's decoction recipe so I really don't see a need to change anything...

Cool man, I'll hit you up when it's done(and if its drinkable being my first AG batch and all). I work in Royal Oak, so I'm semi close.
