I agree with cryhav0c on this one. The concept of grain to glass in 10 days or two weeks seems skewed. I would agree that with a cold crash in the carboy and then kegging with the set pressure and forget method I am 2.5 to 3 weeks in the keg until my brew isn't tasting green and is "ready".

7 Days primary.
24 Hrs in secondary with gelatin (room temp)
Racked to keg at 30PSI for 30 hours in the chiller.

Just a bit shy of 10 days.

(But really only possible with a light grain bill and a low IBU beer)

WOW. I recon experience pays. What kind of gelatin are u using? It takes me at least 3 weeks to get to that point. Not disapointed with results at all. I'd love to compare mine @ 3 weeks to one @ 10 days though, (for flavor). Had a man tell me that mine @ three weeks tasted like God pee'd in your glass it was so good....LOL, (I think)...<G>

So I decided to brew this beer tomorrow and due to the restrictions of the store I went to I had to make some substitutions. I had to buy LME so I figured I needed 6LBS. They didn't have light so I had to buy Amber and the lowest I could get was 6LB 10oz. I bought the correct amount of hops though it is dried hop leafs. I happen to have .5oz of centennial pellets in my freezer and was wondering if I should add some to the start of the boil to make up for the extra amber LME. Should I bother or stick to the regular additions?

If using whole leaf hops, you need quite a bit more to get the same bittering potential as pellets. There are many online references for the conversion, but if you bought the same amount of leaf that the recipe calls for in pellets, it'll be under-bittered. I'm sure it will still be fine but just an FYI.

As for the amber DME, that will definitely result in a darker, different beer than the CB. Again, like above - I'm sure it'll still be good but definitely different than this recipe....

Thanks for the reply. I added 3grams of pellets I had in the freezer to the first addition. Sample tasted good, it was actually more bitter then what I was expecting. I used 1056 yeast and it is happily bubbling away in the basement at 68F. This yeast is kind of a let down after using White Labs 380 my last two batches, both were volcanos after 24hrs

Each strain has its own behaviors & properties. Just because 1056 may not develop the same level of krausen doesn't indicate lesser performance or attenuation...

Took a keg of this to a party last night. 18 days after brew day. Used gelatin for the first time and this was my clearest beer ever. No one at the party had ever had homebrew before. Keg was floating at the end and was well received! Thanks BM!
