I let a new guy who's wanting to brew make this with me the other day. He milled and got all the grain together. Wanted to sub out some crystal for a wee bit of honey malt, which was okay.

He grabbed and milled victory instead of the Vienna though! Came out darker from the Victory, but otherwise smelled good.

He used Cascade and Amarillo late in the boil for some citrusy and peachy notes. I let him use some Conan ( Alchemist's house strain ) on it to give it a nice dry finish with a peachy note.

Should be pretty good I think, maybe the Victory will be good in there, especially since we ended up around 30 IBU's to balance the added malty side.

Brewed a batch of this on Saturday. Finished perfect with a 1.040 og and yielded 5 gallons. Apparently the yeast were very hungry and happy with my wort. The yeast went on on ferment frenzy and blew the lid off the bucket and decided the floor was a supple environment for krausen to relax. Sunday morning was a bummer! Gonna try again next weekend. This time with a bigger primary and blowoff. Ugh.

I haven't read every single post, but a large percentage of them. My question is: my house yeast is ESB London 1968, would this be completely the wrong yeast character wise? Any and all suggestions welcome.

I'd just use it even though I haven't used the strain myself. If it's your house yeast then you like it, so why not use it? The point of this beer is a simple drinker that is quite good and if you like a particular strain i'm sure it will also turn out well.

Just report back and let us know how the strain change turned out.

I am thinking about a quick batch of beer and this would fit the bill. The problem is that I don't have any Cara-pils on hand. I know Cara-pils adds body so what would be a good sub for this?

I would use light crystal or some flaked wheat. Personally I would use the flaked wheat since there's already light crystal in the recipe. But as always YMMV.

Wow, too much thread to go through but thanks Biermuncher. I am kind of spur-of-the-moment planning this for my first small-batch AG BIAB this coming Friday. This looks pretty straightforward and clearly is a winner. I know its not much and will be gone in a weekend or two, but I want to get my feet wet with this technique. For a 3 gallon batch does this look right:

4.2 lbs Pale Malt (80%)
0.45 lbs Cara Pils (8.5%)
0.3 lbs Crystal 10L (5.7%)
0.3 lbs Vienna (5.7%)
0.15 Centennial @55
0.15 Centennial @35
0.15 Cascade @20
0.15 Cascade @5
1pkg Nottingham dry yeast

Thanks for any feedback!

Thanks man! Stopped in the LHBS and my whopping grain bill expense: $9.03 Hops added a bit more beyond that, but I could use the extra for another BIAB I have planned in a couple weeks.

brewed this one this past Saturday. It was only my 3rd AG BIAB. I scaled the grains up because my first 2 batches I had only gotten 60% efficiency. Well this time, I milled my own grain and got 76%. So I had an OG of 1.048. I increased all the hops aditions to .33oz.
