since there is no flavor/aroma hop addition in this recipe can I just use Casacade because that is what I have? Will it make much difference?

Would White Labs cream ale blend work for this? Wlp080. Thought it would give it more lager like characters.

Would Mt Hood be a fair substitute for Tettnanger? Trying to limit the cost of things I don't already have.

Why yes... yes it would.

thanks for the substitute reply. I am a real idiot. I went and measured out the grains (and not the hops) to see what I needed, then went to the home brew shop. after getting back I went into the freezer to do my hop breakout and lo and behold, the 6 oz of Mt Hood I thought I had were gone. I am subing for the subs. Now using a combination of Saaz, Stryian Golding and Perle. Hope these work too.

Just bought everything for this one. Using White Labs cream ale mix for the yeast.

49% 2-Row
23% Vienna
18% Munich
10% Crystal #40

It was a huge hit. Cleared up nicely and very quickly. Smooth flavor.

If you can't get aromatic or aren't a big fan...this simpler recipe gets 6 thumbs up from my neighbors.
Was short on cash, nobody I knew had Vienna, so I made this as follows:

9 gallon batch
9lbs. American Pale Ale
7lbs. Munich
1.8lbs. Crystal 40L

Overnight mashed at 156. I'm thinking this will end up dry as my first overnight mash attenuated 97%. Then again, maybe I denatured some beta in this higher temp range (first time I mashed at 153 and was simple pale ale).

Anyways, used Perle 0.70 FWH, 0.3 @ 45, and Tettnang 0.75 at 30. IBU's should be just a scoche over 20.

Pitched SF Steam Lager yeast and ferm'ing it at 54. Probably just long-primary it for a month, diacetyl for a few days, then cold-crash/lager it sub-40* for another few weeks, then keg in October.

Not the forum for this question I'm sure....but....what is this "overnight mash" you speak of? How do, did you execute?

Has anybody let this sit for 3 weeks or more in the primary? I just brewed last night and then found out this morning I'm out of town for the next three weeks. Was hoping to go 1 week primary, 3 secondary.

The longest I've ever left anything in the primary was 17 days. It'll be at a constant 65 degrees btw.

Thanks!
