On a side note, this may be a blessing in disguise. Depending on how it turns out, I may dilute it a little to get back closer to the original recipe. Gee, should I mess with the hops? Maybe bump the cascade to 3/4 of an ounce? I think I may do that.

Ok, finally done with brew day. I've been up for about 22 hours now, so it was a little tough. Gotta go to work tomorrow, so I can't go to sleep til tonight, but that's another problem altogether. Back to the centennial blonde blunder. I noticed that the mash was ridiculously thick. I had to add two gallons of boiling water to get it up to temp, and thin enough to even stir. Depending on how far off my scale was when I brewed my punkin ale, I could've used anything up to 25 lbs of 2-row on this one. After the boil I had about 9 gallons at 18 brix. I added 3 gallons of distilled water to get 12 gallons at 1.053. I think this will be right up my alley just like it is. Should end up about 5.5% I figure.

Given the results of my brew, I assume I should pitch a second pack of yeast. Yes/No? Thoughts?

I have pitched a single smack pack, with no starter, into a similar gravity beer and made excellent beer.

Wait it out, keep calm and drink on

My conical is full of punkin ale, so this went into two ale pails. One is bubbling away, and the other isn't too far behind.

I brewed this 3 weeks ago and it's great. My LHBS was sold out of centennial so I used 1oz of willamette instead.

the cascades i've got are only 6.6%aa. should i up the 60min addition of centennials or just leave it as is. brewtarget shows it coming out at around 18 ibus. i guess i wouldn't taste a huge difference

How do you like it with willamette? I've made the original twice and both have had a spicy (peppery?) bitterness that I don't really care for. I assume that's the centennial. I really like the malt bill for what it is. But for my taste, I think I need to change the first two hop additions and maybe double the amount of the cascade additions.
