Ok I just took a hydrometer reading on this after fermenting for 1 week. I used Safale Us-05 dry yeast (one packet) and just got a reading of 1.006!!!
At the peak of fermentation the temp did read about 70F. After the yeast died down a bit it went back to a steady 66. Anyone know how I went so low on the gravity? I followed the recipe to the letter.
Thanks.

WOW...
I brewed the Haus Pale on 1/3/08,
I crash cooled it on 1/1008,
carbed and bottled it on 1/11/08,
and it was all consumed at a wedding reception on 1/12/08.
The beer was a whole nine days old, not as clear as I would
have liked it, not as aged as I would have liked it, but
people LOVED it.

I wanted to thank ED for letting me come out to his home today. Brought the SWMBo too...

I got to taste his brew and talk some beer talk with him. Got to tour his setup and his BBQ Egg setups... very very nice. Got to taste a bad ass Porter he had.

Ed thanks again for today and thanks for all of your insight on this forum.

PS. I made another 5 gal of Apfelwine at the SWMBO request today!....

I know, I was thinking the same thing. There were two friends of mine that were there that are beer geeks, not brewers, but definitely beer geeks, and they felt like there was a bit of an aftertaste to all of my beers. It could have been the elusive "extract twang" that some people insist is always there, and others feel belongs in the same category as the loch ness monster and bigfoot... or it could have just been that all four of the beers that were served were only a month or less old, so they were all still green.

I have one more wedding, in 8 weeks, that I know for certain that I am brewing for, and I was asked yesterday to brew for another wedding, but I have no idea when that one is, so I will start brewing again come Monday morning, and this time get things done a month or two ahead of time so that the beers can rest and age a little.

Your is DEFINITELY on the list of stuff to be brewed for both of those weddings.

No problem. What a great day (except for the cedar pollen). You have a nice tasty Haus Ale going, but like lots of other folks here, you need a little patience and let it age a few more weeks before drinking.

I may have to update the recipe to include starting another batch the next day just so folks get to try some properly aged Haus Ale.

I was really hoping to brew this for my first all grain, but I cannot seem to find cascades anywhere
anyone have any suggestions on either a solid replacement, or know of a place to order them??

*edit - found them at beer-wine.com, woohoo
