I am brewing my 2nd batch of the Centenial Blonde this weekend. I just purchased my ingredients at my LHBS for $19.50 for the 5gal.

This is the perfect recipe in my opinion for learning the process - simple ingredients, low cost, and a tasty result!

cheers
Glad you like it.

Just wanted to throw this out there, I've done the 10gal All-grain twice, and I'm planning on doing it again tomorrow! Excellent summer beer.

For anyone who wants a variation of the extract version (and actually reads this far)
I put this together for a friend and it tasted AWESOME

4lbs of Light DME
1.3 lbs of Light LME

1/2 lb Caramel 10*L
1/2 lb Vienna 10*L
1/2 lb Carapils
Though Vienna is supposed to be mashed, if you put all those grains in a bag and soak them in 3 qts water @ ~150 for 45 min, then dunk them in 2 qts water @ ~175 for 10 min, the process is very similar to DeathBrewers stove top all-grain method. This adds alot of flavor to the finished beer!

.5 oz Centennial @ 60
.25 oz Cascade @ 20
.25 oz Cascade @5

Just my take. I enjoy all-grain more but this is for helping beginners! DME FTW, you get no off flavors when using it.

Your recipes are awesome BierMuncher

I found a serious flaw in this recipe. This brew will not last anytime at all at my place. SWMBO and her sister are making this stuff disappear faster than I could imagine. The good thing is I've got the cost for this down to $13.50 for a 5 gal. batch. Good deals at hopsdirect.com and LBHS helps a lot... This is seriously making me consider betting a bigger brewpot and doing some 10 gal. batches.

How did you get the cost down? Just by buying in bulk?

Been all grain brewing for a while now. Finally decided to see what all the hype was about. Wife needs a good blonde and her friends are all bud light/miller light people so I am usually reduced to drinking my pales, IPA's and stouts myself What a drag I know Bought the grains today, have all the hops in freezer, gonna use notty for the first time so I am looking forward to brewing this next weekend.

Served this at my 4th party and everyone enjoyed it. No one drank there BMC. Thanks BierMuncher. Also this was my first AG and it came out perfect.

If I take anything from the thread this quote will be the most important!

I am brewing this today with 2 BMC buddies that I am hoping to convert. From the looks of things this is the best place to start!

I have to make a modification to the grain bill since my LHBS doesn't keep Crystal 10.. Is Munich malt gonna be a good replacement if it scores at 10L too? Or should I stick with Crystal 40L, lowest Lovibond available..?
