This is spot on by the way. when converting to extracts, use the same extract as the base malt, and let your specialty grains determine color and adjunct flavor. I'd go with a light pilsen extract.

Here it is after 14 days in the bottle. Really good beer, probably my favorite batch to date. Not the best pic, actually pretty clear after 1 day in the fridge. I might as well start version 2.0 tomorrow because these aren't going to last long.

Ended up a gallon short in my pre-boil and overshot the OG by 10 points. Still learning my new system.

Hops weren't noticeable in hydro sample, but should still be an excellent summer brew. Thanks for the awesome recipe! Can't wait to brew it again once I get to know the new brewery.

Can't believe no one has tried this recipe in the last three weeks. I kegged my batch today. My first thought was I forgot to dry hop and figured I would just dry hop in the keg. Then I checked the recipe and saw it didn't have any dry hops in it. The hydrometer sample really surprised me - beautiful color, not much aroma, but a mouthful of flavor. It will probably be two or three weeks before there is room in my beer fridge (only holds two kegs) so it will be a while before I get to drink it cold and carbonated, but it promises to be great. Thanks for the recipe.

I'm savoring my last 4 bottles. It's really good. I dry hopped the last 3 days with some but next time I think I'll skip it.

Thanks. I was thinking of dry hopping in the keg, but I think I am going to try it without this time.

It's not bad by any means. Just a little nose hit mostly. Last one I had I decided I would skip it next time but who knows, I might miss it.

Gonna make 10g more of this soon. They only had it in stock for a couple weeks this spring.

But, it is cheaper to make, and I'd rather have it on tap at home

Thanks for this, AZ.

I'm going to try this as my first all grain brew... We'll see how I do. I'm going to add an additional pound of 2-row to increase the OG... I'll post how it turns out.

How much initial water did you use in the wort? I want to know how much h20 I should expect to boil down...
