I read somewhere that the Brewmaster said there was some acidulated malt in there, maybe like 3%. Guess if your PH is good you don't need it.

I've seen that as well-- about the acidulated malt-- I've never used it though, and I use regular old tap water too. I think I have pretty good water here, and I never had a ph issue. I have used some ph stabilizer in my mash tun on a few batches,- just to try it, which should make my water 5.2. When I did use it, it increased my efficiency a bit, but I never saw a difference in flavor in my final product.

For bottling I would go with 4 - 4.5 oz of cane sugar. If your using corn sugar go with slightly less maybe 3.7 - 4 oz

Brewing this on Saturday. Have to substitute Centennial for Amarillo, but it'll be close enough. Thanks for the recipe! Kyle

Yeah Amarillo is hard to come by now. I hope the centennial works ok. I really recognize the Amarillo in the flower power though. It'll be delicious anyways I'm sure.

Conan-- How'd your brewday go with this recipe. I just racked a batch to my keg again this weekend. I took a sip, and yes, good as ever. Hope it turns out great, I'm sure it will.

Dupmsterboy,
Sorry for the late reply. My brewday got pushed back until today, and I'm about to put the 10 minute addition in the kettle as I type. It's going very well so far. I edited the recipe a bit more, though. I only had Crystal 80, so I used .35 lbs of that instead of .4 of Crystal 40. Then as I was putting away my grain I noticed I had a bag of Biscuit, so I added .15 lbs. of that. I may or may throw in the .5 oz of Centennial left over from the first addition. I don't think it'll need it for aroma since there's already 2 oz of Cascade going in. I'm going to pitch a half-liter starter of S-05, started on Thursday I believe. I'll let you know how it turns out. I expect it to ferment out in 3-4 days as S-05 tends to do, but I'll probably leave it in the fermenter for at least a week. Then keg/ keg hop and enjoy! Kyle

I finished pitching about a half hour ago.....and I went hardcore wrong somewhere. My SG was 1.068, predicted 1.091 for 5.25 gallons. I ended up with 5.5 gallons and it smells/ tastes great going into the fermenter but man, I haven't missed a gravity this bad ever. I use a pasta-roller crusher (updated very soon, I hope!) and I noticed I was well-crushing half the grains but the other half were more or less slipping through un-crushed. It took 45 minutes to work through crushing it all the first time so I neglected running it through a second time- lesson learned. I'm still excited about this brew. The house smelled like hops like crazy.

integra- if you don't use a starter, you can get away with 1 packet of S-05. It'll be quicker with two packets, but in my experience one packet will knock out a high-gravity brew well enough. Good luck with it, I'm looking forward to mine! Kyle
