I let mine (extract version) sit in the primary for close to four weeks. It's been in the keg for one week but I haven't tried it yet. I plan on trying either tomorrow or Tuesday. I'll definitely be back to post results.

So I made this today, and hopefully, the water problems were what was causing the problems with taste whenever I tried it before; used some reverse osmosis water instead of tap water.

5-gallon batch, and got an OG of 1.051. Seems a little high.

Unfortunately, also wound up with Munich malt instead of Vienna. Hopefully it won't mess up the taste too much

This beer is very flexible. Just about any way you brew it, it will turn out delicious. Mine was ferementing for about 11 days and then kegged. It is great after a few days carbonated.

I brewed this yesterday as my FIRST All Grain......session went great! See my LIVE posting if interested.....http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/repo...-batch-248346/

QUESTION: I see this is a quick turnaround beer.....is there any reason or benefit to transfer this to a secondary for a week or so.....i.e. 7 days in primary and 7 days in secondary perhaps..

Well I'm drinking my second batch of Centennial Blonde. Followed original recipe for the first batch and changed it up a little on the second.

Second batch I used 20L Crystal Malt to get a better color, that yellow color just didn't do it for me. I also used Wyeast 1272 American Ale II. I also fermented different on the second batch as the first beer was too green for my crowd around here. So I did 2 weeks in the primary, 2 weeks in the secondary and 1 week on gas. This beer is AWESOME!, really nice color and flavor. I will be doing my recipe from now on and will be keeping it on tap as a house beer.

Thanks BierMuncher for the original recipe!

Ah it's [technically] summer here even though it snowed over the weekend

I guess it's time to crank another BM Centennial Blonde! YAAAAY! I'm going to stick with S-04 because it really like the added esters, but this year I have a converted-freezer for temperature control that I'm about to finish. This may be the cleanest edition yet!

As a pretty new brewer, I have probably a dumb question about this beer. I would like to do the five gallon extract version, but my brew kettle is not big enough for the 6.5 gallons required for the posted recipe. To date, I've done AHS kits where you start with 2-3 gallons for the boil and top off in the fermenter. That works well for me at this point.

Any recommendations for how to scale this down so that the boil size is similar to the kits mentioned above? Thanks in advance!

Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 6.57 gal
Estimated OG: 1.044 SG
Estimated Color: 3.2 SRM
Estimated IBU: 16.8 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 70.0 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
5.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 83.3 %
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 16.7 %
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%] (45 min) Hops 7.8 IBU
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%] (20 min) Hops 5.1 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (10 min) Hops 2.5 IBU
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (5 min) Hops 1.4 IBU
1 Pkgs Nottingham (Danstar #-) Yeast-Ale

Couldn't you just boil everything as normal with 3 gallons and then mix in the rest of the water in the fermenter?
