Brewed my first AG BIAB with this as a base today. Upped the hop additions a bit, but kept the grain bill the same. Lucky me, I got a hiiiiiigh efficiency of 85% with an OG of 1.061 for 5.3 gallons. Guess it's a good thing I upped the hops!

Kegged this past Saturday after ~14 days in primary and it's a nice beer. I'd dry hop it and up the flavor hops slightly if I was the primary consumer, but this was my gateway beer for non-craft beer drinkers. To that end, it suits it's purpose - thanks for sharing!

Ended up dry hopping with 2 ounces of Simcoe.

I used 15L on mine, and it was fine.

I've never used dry yeast before this beer. I used US-05, is it normally "clumpy" compared to liquid yeast? I've never seen yeast ferment like that dry yeast did, it was fun to watch. Except when it clogged the airlock and painted my fermentation fridge with yeast.

It seems to be settling nicely at the bottom of the carboy now, which is great, little slower than what liquid yeast normally does, and doesn't seem to be as clear at the 10 day mark, but it seems to be getting better.

Does this sound normal of dry yeast? I'll admit I didn't rehydrate on purpose. I've been trying to find valid shortcuts in the brewing day that now takes me 5+ hours... LOL.

I've been using US-05 a lot lately and I love it. I use gelatin at the end to make it crystal clear. I've tried it in a few variations of APA like this and all come out great!

I was liquid only yeast kind of guy until I tried that stuff. It's great to just pitch 2 packs and not deal with starters.

I've only used dry yeast a handful of times but, now that you mention it, it does settle into little clumps like little pebbles or something.

I got an OG of 1.061 SG.
Estimated IBUs 32.8
Estimated FG of 1.012
Estimated ABV of 6.4% (Oops! )

I'll report back in a few weeks with more results!
I just kegged this. The sample tasted OK. I think it is still too young. It probably needs at least a couple more weeks at 65°F, so it went back into my fermentation chamber.
