What's a good sub for the ahtanum? I've got extra simcoe, amarillo, and centennial. Thanks.

I would use more Amarillo or Cascade if you have that. Ahtanum adds that grapefruit flavor.

Had a blind Taste test last light. 5 judges all picked this beer over the following beers. -- Ballast Point Big Eye, Ballast Point Sculpin, Firestone Union Jack, and Bear Republic Racer 5.
It was totally blind, and it was cool to see this beer win with all judges. I will say however that this beer was brewed and kegged and the others were poured from bottles, and I think that does makes a difference. Obviously all of the beers mentioned are awesome, so nobody complained about not liking any of them anyways.

So what's your current recipe? I know we've discussed amounts of honey malt before, mine didn't turn out so great when I made this before.

16.5# 2-row, 4oz Caramel 40L ,I reduced honey malt to 6oz,--and I have consistently been adding 2 packets of safale us-05. As far as the hop schedule-- I have really been moving the hops around. Here was my hop schedule for the latest brew-- 1.0 Centennial @60, 0.5 Amarillo @50, 1.0 Citra @40, 1.0 Chinook@ 35, 1.0 Simcoe @ 30, 1.0 Cascade @25, 0.5 Ahtnaum @ 20, 0.5 Amarillo @15, 1.0 Cascade at 10.---then dry hopped with 1.0 Amarillo and Simcoe.

This was the recipe for the Taste test

Which recipe is closest to flower power? The one you just posted or the original?

They are really close actually. I think the one I just posted is, but my wife thinks the first one. I recently read that Ithaca Flower Power uses a special proprietary yeast that they developed and cultured it at Cornell University. I do think that that does give Flower power its very unique taste, that might be impossible to exactly clone. A friend of mine just brewed this recipe with Wyeast Whitebread 1099 and I'm just waiting to see how that one will turn out. He said a brewer from Ithaca said that although you can't mimic their yeast exactly, he felt Wyeast 1099 or WLP 001 would be the closest yeast match. I plan on trying those yeasts as well in the future, but Safale us-05 is just so easy to use and has worked well thus far.

Nice, I think i'll give your newest recipe a shot. I'll stick with 05, I'd rather not go out and buy another strain. And if its been getting you in the ballpark that's all I ask for. Thanks,

Just tried this recipe with Wyeast 1099. Tasted awesome. Produced a slightly less malt profile which I enjoyed.
