ahh, 5 gallon caryboys makes more sense, the pic looked like 6 or 6.5 gallon secondary fermenters.

Yes , not even one day, an hour. I said its not even close , which may have alot to do with it. I just took a sample from what i kegged. I dont know i guess i was just expecting something different.

Is this the first batch you've ever kegged? One week at serving pressure will get your beer properly carbed. Even after it is carbed It'll still be young (2 weeks and 5 days). Be patient let it age some.

Agreed, give it some more time. Also, this is a very sessionable beer, easy to put these down too fast. Most of the time I enjoy a beer or two on weeknights but with this one on tap it's been hard to have less than 3.

I brewed on 5/26 and kegged around 6/19 or so. That's plenty of time in primary that it's ready to drink as soon as it's carbed.

Just bought the ingredients for this today. Brew day is tomorrow. I have an out of town trip starting on the 18th and don't want to leave the AC blasting while I'm away, so bottling day will be the 17th. This will be the first brew that I haven't left in primary for 4 weeks. Hopefully it turns out ok. Maybe I'll give it 4 weeks in the bottle (instead of my usual 3) to clean up a bit.

You'll be fine Nulli. I've done this one from grain to glass (kegged) in that timeframe.

I just brewed this again this morning. Followed things to a T because of how well it turns out. I pitched 3 hours ago, and I'm already pushing bubbles out the airlock.

Thanks, however I can't get Columbus hops here either. I do have Galena, Chinook, and Challenger. Which of those would be the best to replace the Centennial?

Will be making this recipe for the third time on the 4th. I wanted to get some suggestions about altering this recipe by adding Amarillo and Citra hops. I have a 1/2 oz of each from a left over recipe and I would like to use them up on this brew. In addition to the original hops, I was thinking of adding Amarillo sometime during the boil and dry hopping with the citra. Any thought to quantities and times in which you would make additions to create a tasty libation?

Very good. Lighter then my normal brews but great with the temps around 110. The first drinks as good as the 3rd and the 6th..... Wife loves it with a twist of lemon.

Color is very light and very clear. Could use a little more mouth feel.
