Can you make a recommendation for a similar yeast from Wyeast Labs. Thanks
1056 American Ale would do very well.

I used 1056, accidently fermented a little warm 75, cracked the first bottle today. Awesome light beer. Great recipe

It turns out that I only have 5 lbs of 2 row pale malt. I am going to use maris otter for the additional 2 pounds to bring me up to 7lbs of base malt.
I am still contemplating the vienna. I might just go with a .25lb of vienna since the maris otter has a maltier flavor.
I am still going to include the crystal 10 and carapils. I will let you know how it turns out.

Sounds like it will be fine. Mash it low and if you want it to lighten up and dry out a bit more, do a 75-90 minute mash. Compensate the grain bill though for a higher attenuation so you don't end up with too high an ABV.

Thanks as always Biermuncher!
I will probably toss in one more pound of Maris Otter or a little more Crystal 10 to compensate.
I will post a pint when it is ready.
Off to heat the strike water.....

You Are the Man
Brewed the Centennial (Now named Blondie's Ale) on April 26. Drank the first bottle last night after 10 days in the bottle.
It truly is an inspired brew.....Brilliant
Despite the bad photo attached, the color is bright sunshine yellow. The nose is floral and the taste is balanced.
Even green it has exceptional smoothness. The carbonation is like champagne. A beautiful creamy colored head that lasts the entire glass and coats the class with a wonderful lace.
My wife and daughter are ecstatic and rate the Blonde higher than their previous favorite Boundary Bay's Blonde (Bellingham Washington).
Only problem is a chill haze that will go away soon.
Second Brew is scheduled for Saturday...This won't last long.

Any thoughts on dry hopping this recipe? Maybe just 0.5 oz Simcoe, or 0.5 oz Simcoe and 0.5 oz Cascade, or Simcoe/Amarillo, or whatever suits your taste?
Edit: or, duh, keep with the Centennials?
