Muncher.

I brewed this 11 days ago (only change was Pils vs pale - due to that fact I got a lot it at the moment and I thought this light beer it would be ok)

Well I Kegged it on Sat. and I dropped the temp to 35 and set the PSI to 20 and boom I tasted it tonight. I need to take pic. It was very fine.

I am on the hook for 10 gallons of beer for the Texas/Arkansas game this week-end and I needed a quick turn time.

Would an extra week help this beer out>? Sure.. but for a 11 day old beer... it is very drinkable.
It is a little cloudy still... but I think that will clear by the week-end in the keg.

I used 05 and it dropped to 1.008
nice...

Thanks for the Recipe.

I brewed this last weekend and ended up with a OG of 1.040. A little low but it sure tasted good. Using malt from a local group buy program, notty yeast and hops from Williams Brewing ($2/per oz!), I can brew 5 gals of this for $8.61! At that rate I'be able to pay for my brew/keg equip. in about 10-15 years!

I brewed the extract version of this last night. The only issue was my LHBS only had a half pound of Carapils left (his order did not come in as expected). He recomended that I substitute the half pound of Carapils with biscuit malt. So, my grain bill was .5# carapils; .5# biscuit. How much do you think it will change the recipe?

I brewed a batch of this a couple weeks ago, and we're really tearing through the keg now - it really is a great quaffer! If I wasn't in dire need of getting some other beers brewed to have some more variety in the house, I'd be doing another batch of this immediately!

Thanks for the recipe, BM, it's a great one as always!

My batch of this did not workout so well. I used all home grown hops so I had no idea how it would be. I pulled the first pint last night and it taste like sweet-tarts. So it seems my hops were really low on the AAU's. I ordered some AI oil extract today so I can bitter it up and make it better.
I'll brew it again but I'll use the store bought hops this time.

just kegged this after a 10 day stay in the fermenter, awesome stuff I think I am going to make another batch just to bottle

I did the extract version and boiled 2lbs of the DME for an hour and added the other 3lbs at flameout and I ended up with a very very nice pale color. But I did come up low on the OG at 1.042 at only 5 gallons. Also I did not transfer to secondary and it still came out great.

Thanks!

I brewed a batch using the method above on 10/4 (2lbs in 3.5 gallon boil, 3 lbs at flame-out). Used WLP001 with a 500ml starter. Bubbling away nicely.

What OG did you end up with?

I am not sure b/c I didn't get a good OG reading due to trying a new technique for drawing a sample (turkey baster instead of auto-siphon). I didn't get my top-off water mixed well enough in the glass carboy, and the sample I took was from the very top.

Not too worried about it since I used the extract method, though.
