Yes, but I figure if the next beer is an IIPA or strong stout (not sure about a stout with US-05) it should overpower any left over hops/trub. Plus it's so much less work than harvesting the yeast

Go ahead and go for it if you want. I don't mind harvesting yeast, it doesn't take too long, and then gives you another 2 - 4 batches of yeast for your next brews.

Nothing wrong with this. Ive done it a few times for stronger brews, but also similar normal strength brews. Anything will work since this beer is so lightly hopped and light in color.

Don't get me wrong, I harvest most of the time. But when I have two similar brews or a strong on deck, its a hell of a lot easier to pitch onto trub.

Default Secondary after 4 days


Brewed the 11 gallon recipe. Transferred this to secondary after 4 days in an attempt to get it ready for a party. OG was 1.042 (I always seem to get 75% efficiency thus the higher number.)and the FG when I transferred was 1.012. Tasted my sample for testing and man was it awful. Not quite undrinkable but definitely not good. I wasn't expecting much but since I have never had anything come out of the fermenter this quickly I wanted to see if anyone else had the same result. After sitting in secondary for a couple of days I lifted the airlock and it smells a bit better but haven't tasted it yet.

Anyone else have the same result?
I'm assuming this is just due to the fact that it was only 4 days old when I tasted it and it will clear up, but I am contemplating buying some commercial brew just in case!

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I did it grain to glass in 10 days and it was excellent (I used Notty yeast). I didn't dry hop. I think that would be overkill for this beer. It was bit cloudy at first but it cleared after a few days.

Awesome recipe.

Curious to know about something. I made edworts pale ale and planned on making 15 gallons based on what I bought. Really happy with it, but I'm thinking something lighter might be better for my caloric intake. Also, I priced this out and if I re-use the s-05 it'll run me about $5 per 2-4 equivalent.

Right now I'm ordering up a bit more 2 row and some centennial. I plan on brewing this weekend, fermenting as usual, and then when I rack to the bottling bucket, I'd like to scoop out all the hop junk on the bottom of the fermenter, and leave a cup or two of yeast cake - then dump on some freshly cooled wort. I want to do this a couple times as I will have the ingredients to make 15 gallons total, stretch the yeast a little bit

My thinking was to siphon off, throw a bit of filtered water onto the yeast cake to carry off some junk, and then scoop out with a sanitized cup.

Would that work?

Just got finished brewing my first batch of Centennial Blonde! I did a 10 gallon BIAB batch following the exact recipe. I ended up with slightly higher than planned efficiency so ended up at 1.043 OG. Cooled to 68 and went ahead and pitched 1 package of rehydrated Nottingham into each carboy. Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Just a note - I brought this beer to a homebrew club meeting and served to about 30 people. Everyone really liked it. Said it was complex, light, dry and tasty, exactly what a blonde should be.

After getting feedback I told everyone it was done via BIAB - lots of questions ensued as I was the only BIAB'er in attendance

Can you describe the taste?

Mine personally took about 10 days to finish, ended at 1.008. At 4 days it was still going.
