This was another of my experiments with Cascade hops. I bottled it on 7/17/12 after 2 weeks primary, and 1 in secondary. With a twist of lime, this beer tastes like a Corona (a yummy bohemian Corona with 5.5ABV and 32IBU). Even my "non-beer drinking" wife likes it (nice). With a 30 minute boil and dumping all the fermentable in at the start of the boil, it was super easy to make. Head retention could be better; maybe 8oz of maltodextrin (vice 4oz)? Also, it did ferment out pretty low, but for this style of beer it seems to work.

Time - Additions
30 - 1oz Cascade, 6lb rice syrup, 1lb Clear Candi, 1lb Invert Sugar
15 - 1oz Cascade, 4oz maltodextrin, 1tsp irish moss
10 - .5tsp Yeast Nutrient
5 - 1oz Cascade

OG - 1.048
FG - 1.003
ABV - 5.5
SRM - 3
IBU - 32

Yeah, my rice-heavy beers seem to ferment out much lower than projected, such that I've started adjusting the attenuation rate on my recipes. Setting it to about 80% usually seems about right.
