Just tasted this beer for the first time after 10 days of bottle conditioning and it is already drinkable! after another week or 2 this is going to be awesome!
Can't think of a better summer beer than this and it was super cheap to brew!

Just bottled my batch of this last night. Very happy with the recipe! Although I tried to stick to it, I did dry hop with 2.5oz cascade and used 1272 which took it from 1.042 to 1.006. Hydro sample tasted really good, can't wait for it to carb up. I brewed it for a grad party to please the masses and it looks like it will do just that!

Gonna brew this tomorrow. I read a lot of the posts, but not all 313 BeerSmith seems to be calling for 1 1/2 packages of Nottingham dry yeast, but it looks like everyone's just using 1 package? I'm brewing all grain, but haven't been at it for all that long and want to get this right.
Thanks,

Brewing this tomorrow as well. Anyone used the Whitelabs california ale V as substitute? It is going to be near 100 the next two weeks and I can't keep the house at 65

One pack is more than enough. Happy brewing!

For a cheap(er) way to keep your fermentation cool you could use a swamp cooler. The other option is to use a temp-controlled fermentation chamber. I have to deal with constant high temps in Hawaii so I went with a chest freezer off CL.

Your other option is to try out a saison yeast. I have heard of people here in Hawaii fermenting at rather high temps. If you could keep the house/room you are fermenting in at about 75-80 you should be fine. Might get some funky Belgian-ness, but that could turn out good!

Scored a garage fridge today! Brewed and ended up at 1.041 og.

The fridge is set at 61 degrees so hopefully I'll have bubbles tomorrow
