In my opinion, is EXACTLY like [your favorite fizzy yellow beer] but about 50 times better.

I did my 8th batch of this yesterday. I can't wait.

I did the Wyeast 1056 with a 2 liter starter. 1 night into fermenting & it's bubbling like crazy! 70% efficiency. I'm going to dry hop an additional 1.0 oz of Cascade on top of the secondary of the for my 1st time ever. Sloose said it's awesome!

I do 12 days in the primary and 14 in the secondary before I keg. Sure it's a much longer aging process but this beer benefits with age.

BierMuncher is right, when Cascade is combined with Centennial................. Magic Happens!

Thanks Guys!

Been following this thread for about a month and finally brewed the extract version in post #10 using a 1 liter starter of wyeast 1056. In the primary at 14:00 active fermentation at 20:30, amazing.

Mines been in the primary a 8 days. Cam I bottle this tomorrow to drink next weekend. I'm in crisis mode.

I'M OUT OF HOMEBREW!

The last batch I made was with old extraxt from a clearance sale. Taste was decent for a month but has soured in the last week.

I think bottling takes longer. (never done it myself) If you could keg it then yes you could.

No, probably not. Take some gravity readings. Beer should be in primary for at least 2-3 weeks. Wait the 3 weeks, you will regret it later if you bottle now.

Then it should really be bottle conditioned for 2-3 weeks. Doing a 1 week primary then 1 week conditioning period will not turn out well at all IME.

Also if the previous brew soured, I would step up my sanitation.

I dunno I had mine in primary for about that long, bottled and tasted after 10 days in bottle and it was already really good... But really green. After 2 weeks it has quickly become a really smooth brew. For my setup I may alter my mash temp slightly because its a tad dry. Nonetheless, lots of "wow you made this?" comments

Ageing will almost always provide an even better result. While fermentation can be done in one week, its usually a good idea to let it clear up, settle and consume secondary products of fermentation.

I wouldn't pop a bottle until at least 2 weeks. Of course I've opened at one week in the past (hasn't everyone?), but that's just one beer less when it peaks. IME anyway.
