I did a one gal batch of this recently to try it out. The beer has been in bottles for 1.5 weeks and seemed to be carbed pretty decently already. I may pop another one this weekend to see where it is at. I also did a 5 gal extract batch that is fermenting away in my closet. Notty was a slow starter (not sure if this was because of room temp.) but it has been going like crazy since. I have the ingredients to do my first BIAB and I just got my 9 gal kettle today so I'm pretty excited to do that. I should be brewing that one in a week or so when it isn't so cold outside.

I'm missing a few ingredients but I'm hoping I can sub in some stuff:

my lhbs doesn't stock cara-pils. Can I sub in .75# more two row?

Also, no centennial hops. Can I sub with cascade instead? I also have some few month old EKG kicking around.

S-05 works with this as well, correct?

Thanks!

The centennial is what makes this what it is.

I make this as a lawn mower beer. Awesome cold refreshment from the cooler on a hot day type of beer. I have made it with Nottingham and 1056 -- Notti took it dry, 1056 left a little more body but a very neutral palate for the hops to come thru perfectly for a session beer. Notti was really easy. So take what you want and both are excellent beers ,hard to fail with this one!

If cascade is all you have then use it. Cascade and centennial are about as similar as it gets. Centennial is just...well some describe it as cascade on roids. It won't be the same exact beer but it is good none the less. I've done all cascade with this before with good results. And 05 works very well with this beer and many others...

No carapils or centennial ?! What kind of brew shop Is that ? Tell me where it is so I know never to go there!

Carapils or dextro malt is for body and head retention. 2row has none of those properties. Centennial is pretty crucial IMO to this beers wonderful flavor. I use centennial in about 80% of my brews now. You could use EKG but it will certainly change the flavor ..

S05 works great in this beer, as will any clean fermenting yeast. I use this beer as a starter for my big beers with S05.
