I have been steadily quaffing pint after pint of this now that it's carbed. It's very good and I will brew it again. I followed the recipe to the letter FWIW.

Brewed this last night. Used Chinook as the bittering and Hallertauer and Mt. Hood combined at 35,20,5 min. At the last second I added Chinook again at flame out just because I like the smell. I did this mainly because I don't have any Centennial and had used cascade in my last two beers and wanted something different. I got higher then expected 85% efficiency so according to Beersmith this should end up at 5% ABV. Can't wait to try this. Also using some washed US-05 and fermenting cool.

2 weeks in primary, kegged and force carbed over 36 hours ready to tap on the 4th......5 days later and this thing still needs some time. The smell is wonderfull. The taste isn't there A little disappointed at this point as I had such high hopes for this, as I hit the numbers perfectly and the rave reviews it gets. Think I'll let it condition another week in the keg and hopefully it will blend and mellow out. Hopefully in a week it's as good as everyone says

I felt the same way about it, after a couple more weeks it was delicious.

It needs a week atleast to bulk condition and will taste better then. I fermented for 8 days and then kegged it. Tasted good but its better after close to a week and a half on tap.

Usually the case with most beer. It's gettin into its prime once the keg kicks.

Brewed this a few weeks ago, bottled last week. Tasted one after 4 days of conditioning, tasted REALLY GOOD! Can't wait to see how good it is after a few more days of conditioning. Great summer beer.

Maybe you guys could keg it, purge the air with CO2, let it sit in secondary for a week or so, then put in under pressure to carbonize it?

Sure. But it's easier to just chill it and carb it and not touch it for an extra week until its ready if that's the case. No sense in putting off carbing it if you've got room in the keezer.

It's a decent light beer out of the gate. I was drinking it right around 13 or 14 days from grain to glass. Another week and it tasted better. It's not my favorite style or recipe by any stretch but its a light beer and BMC drinkers cup of tea everytime.

Just learned an important lesson, today: never brew when my three year old is home, but my wife isn't.

With all the distractions, my boil has gone like this:

2 lbs DME @ 60 min
1/4 oz Centennial @ 45 min
Reset timer @ 25 min
3lbs DME @ 10 min
1/4 oz Cascade @10 min
Oh **** why do I have leftover hops @ 10 min
1/4 oz Centennial @ 20 min
1/2 oz year-old Cascade @ 10 min
1/4 oz Cascade @ 5 min

Ummm... it'll be beer, but what kind and how good, I'm not sure.
