I'm going with the cascade, this will be my first AG and I plan to follow the recipe exactly the way you wrote it. Maybe I'll try the simcoe on the next batch.

Just finished mine. First AG. Everything seemed to go well, ended up with about 4.5 gallons and it came in at about 1.058. Is this too high? Should I do something to correct this?

You'll be fine. It will just have a bit more kick.

You top off with some bottled water if you wish.

I think i'll choose the kick. Thanks for the recipe Ed, my hydrometer sample was delicious, very pleased for my first AG.

I just brewed this and popped my All-Grain Cherry

Now for the bad news.... LEARNING CURVE....
OG 1.044 Looks like it will be 5% ABV instead of 6% if I'm not mistaken
Mash at 150 since I didn't calculate strike temp (52qt Coleman xtreme MLT with SS braid)
Added to much water as I thought it would be under, ended up over...

I "think" that's 57.44% efficiency... Guess I need to read up on my batch sparging and MLT technique...

FWIW the grain crush at the LHBS seemed "powdery" in comparison to the partial mash grain I've received from AHS, Midwest, and Northern Brewer....

Oh well I hope it comes out well! Cost about $25 in supplies at the LHBS

Well, I only could get 1 ounce of cascade so I grabbed 1 ounce of centennial. How do I adjust the hops? The cascade is 5.9 and the centennial is 9.1?

Here's what I'd do... Played with beersmith for a bit and came up with......



0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (60 min) Hops 9.1 IBU
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (60 min) Hops 16.5 IBU
0.25 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (30 min) Hops 6.4 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (15 min) Hops 2.3 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (5 min) Hops 1.8 IBU
0.25 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (5 min) Hops 1.6 IBU

Bitterness: 37.7 IBU (14.0-20.0 IBU)

At 75% efficency that'll give you 39.3ibu's of bitter AND!!! AND!!!! you will have more hop flavor/armoa because of the higher AA's of centennial. Instead of finishing with only .25oz of hops(cascade) you will be finishing with DOUBLE THAT AMOUNT!!! In the spirit of the brew It might be a tiny touch more of a hop flavor than most coors light people can handle but that other part of the spirit of the brew is to make a nice easy drinking beer with minimal ingridents to be enjoyed greatly by both being easy on the tastebuds and the wallet!

Did this all grain last Sunday. LHBS cascade was a little light on the AA (5.5), so added some Centennial (calculated amounts to get me to 6.6- very little) to bring AA up on each addition. Used a starter from a washed American Ale yeast and did ferment fast and strong. Transfering tomorrow to 2nd for 10 days, then 2 weeks in keg and drink will be on!!

I will be picking up the grain for this (1st AG) this Saturday and it looks like my LHBS has Maris Otter for $1.20/lb but plain 2-row is $2.00/lb.

I have read somewhere else on the board that MO should never be used in an APA, only in English Pale Ales. Is there really much of a difference between MO and plain 2-row (MO is a 2-row barley I beleive)?

Edit: They had the prices wrong on their website, I got 2-row pale malt. No cascade hops either, got simcoe. When I asked for Cascade, LHBS guy laughed at me.

Wow, I ended up with an OG of 1.034. My mini-mash must've been super-inefficient.

Weird; I would have expected about 1.040 from the 5 pounds of DME even if I got nothing at all out of the grain.

Ah well, we'll see what happens; I'm sure it'll end up tasty anyway.
