Young yeast and fresh centennial can be a...Ummmm..."flavorful" combination. Give the beer a few more days then prepare to enjoy it in about three weeks.

Brewed this on 12/23 and served tonight. Would have liked to give it another day or two to crash before kegging, but it turned out just fine, even if a but cloudy. Well received tonight.

Brewed this last night. Took 7 hours since I did a 10g batch but had to do the boil inside on the electric range so two separate boils ( 50 min to boil 7.5g on 3kw element). started with almost 15g of wort at 1.037 out of the mash tun. First boil finished at 1.036 (refractometer) and used notty. 2nd boil finished at 1.037 but I decided to check with the hydrometer and it read 1.040. Calibration on both were good so not sure what the deal is there. Pitched the 2nd one with safale 05. Pitched at ~1am and no activity yet

Looking forward to hearing your taste testing/comparison of the two. Of three yeasts I've tried, Notty is my least favorite. It's a good beer, but I've liked WLP001 and 1056 better.

Read through a few pages of this thread but didn't see anyone bringing it up...thinking of tossing some strawberries into a secondary with this recipe. Any thoughts?

Probably going to split the batch between two carboys to do a normal and strawberry blonde

Me too! Parallel brews... Ha!
Nice beer. Clean, fresh and familiar. A typical "beer" beer, but remarkable in a nice quiet way. I guess that's why folks here have brewed so much of it. I fermented in the low 60's the first few days then upped it to mid 70's with fresh S04. Nice! Mines a lil bit of a dirty blonde on account of the ounce or so of roasted barley I tossed in @ vorlauf, but I love it and will definately be brewing it again for sure.

I'd do it. Good idea for a summer thirst quencher!

Yeppers. But I knew what it would do.
I'll take a dirty blonde over a dumb blonde any day I'll try to post a picture tonight after work. Maybe I'll post a pic of all my current brews...

Okay so color me curious. I've only heard of doing that with extract-PM batches. What does that do in an AG batch??

I'd expect, by throwing it in at the start of the sparge, you get the tiniest amount of color, but very little flavor?

Or vice versa??
