Do you think this would work well as a brew in a bag? Would I have to add some grain to make up for lower effeciency?

Thanks BierMuncher for a great recipe. I used Cascade and Amarillo in my variant. Delicious!

I've make this in a bag and it turned out fine. The best bet is to use Beersmith to determine the grain amounts according to your setup. I generally get 68%-72% conversion efficiency with my setup so I adjust accordingly.

I just did this using Biab method. I took the original recipe and scaled down to a 2.5 gal batch. It is now drinkable and have to say probably my best batch yet. Was also first AG I have done. I would have to look at my notes but I seemed to remember hitting my numbers pretty well.

So what is the fastest turnaround time anyone has done with this recipe? I plan to cold crash with gelatin on Thursday (day 11) for a few days and rack straight to the keg and force carb. I used S-04 so I shouldn't have to worry about yeast still being in suspension.

I made it for a BBQ in 10 days, grain to glass.

But having made probably 50 gallons of the stuff.. it' so much better at about 5-6 weeks. A bit harsh when it's young.

Have you tried it with S-04?

Yep, it will be ready.

I just think it's so much better at even 4 weeks. Keep the temp a bit lower if you are using S-04.. you really want this beer clean.

Just brewed this yesterday as my first all grain brew. And I'm happy to report I hit all my numbers.

I'm looking forward to drinking this!

I brewed this one this weekend. I bumped up the 2-row a pound and used All citra in this brew(it was all I had on hand). I pitched US-05 that I washed from a pale ale. This was my 1st time washing and reusing yeast and this Blonde is going crazy. I needed a blow off tube with this one. Anyone else use all citra?
