I think it would be great. I am going to dry hop in the keg next time.

Brewed this two days ago for my second BIAB. I didn't have Crystal 10 so I substituted Light Carastan (17L). I also used WY1450 because I'm using this recipe to grow yeast for my first attempt at Denny's Wry Smile.

I'm brewing my 4th batch of this today. Adding raspberries to the secondary. I know, I know. I'm just bizarre & need to get out more.

I tried Samuel Adams Cherry & it was great. But I got to get some hops in my system before that. Dogfish Head, 90 minute clone is next.

Raspberries sounds pretty good actually. FYI we cold crashed after fermentation and it cleared very quickly. Planning on reyeasting with cbc1 and bottle condition.

I just brewed this for the 4th time for the wife. This time she gave me 2 lbs of fresh picked blueberries to add after the gravity drop a little. Should be good.

I just brewed up the extract version of this recipe yesterday. The LHBS was out of Centennial so I went with a mix of Columbus and Cascade. The Columbus were 18% AA and I forgot to lower the amount accordingly, so we might end up with a little hoppier version, which will be fine with all my friends. This should make a great warm-weather tailgate beer.

I brewed this on Friday (AG version) to the T. My pre-boil gravity was only about 1.035ish. My post boil O.G came in right around the same. After some calculations, I'm looking at a 3.25 to 3.5% brew. Hopefully, it will turn out. I did the extract version in the past and didn't care for it at all. Hopefully, AG will be better. This was my second AG batch so hopefully it turns out. I'm still working on ways to improve efficiency though. I'll take 65% efficiency though for my 2nd AG brew ever I guess.

How'd you manage to finish your boil without any increase in gravity? That seems fishy.

That's what I thought too. I made sure to bring the test down to the correct temp as well.

Yeah, only way that is possible is if you boiled off nothing, lol. You add any water to the fermenter?
