Yeah I pretty much just use 05 and it needs a little extra time to settle but it is quite a clean yeast. Much more so than Notty I think.

The starter factor probably helps get you good results.

Been reading HBT for the last 3 months and first post. This was the 1st 5 gal All Grain batch I've made (moved up from partials). Still looks a bit cloudy in the keg but it still needs some time I'm guessing. Flavors are nice and clean I gotta say.

Thanks BM!

Welcome to the forum!

If I were you, I would brew the next batch of this beer soon (right now). This one goes fast.

Man I hope you're right.

I tasted mine 5 days in and it was pretty dang bland, and def had plenty of yeast flavor left. Then again, that was FIVE days so there was tons of yeast still in suspension.

I'm really hoping that a nice cold crash sometime next week, followed by kegging/carbing and another wk to age will do the trick. That'd be 2wks aged, 2-3 days cold crashed, then maybe a week or so of conditioning.

Next time you're in town...I'll give the beer I serve you the same consideration...
Why would you freeze bottles before bottling? Never heard of this before...

He was referring to freezing bottles before you fill them with a BMBF (BierMuncher bottle filler). It's a counter pressure bottle filler (think homemade Blichmann Beer Gun) for filling bottles from a keg. Warm bottle + cold beer =foamy mess.

I've brewed the original, seemed to me that it could have used more aroma. anyone try the last 2 hop additions doubled?

Well it is a blonde...not a pale. I'm sure you can turn it into a pale by upping the late hops and maybe slightly more bitter. Or you can brew a pale with similar hop variety and un complex grain bill.

BM's sierra nevada and kona fire rock are solid recipes.

If you were to compare it to a commercial brew. What would be the closest? I have to brew a for a wedding in March and they requested a blonde..
