It will certainly lighten up from where it is now. Never judge a beer color during the fermentation/conditioning process.

Only once you have the yeast drop and the beer has conditioned, can you draw a hydrometer sample and get a close idea as to the color.

Since you did an extract version, it will be darker than an all grain. That's just a fact of homebrewing. Nevertheless, it should taste fantastic.

I'm going to try and brew this one again today. I could only get Cascade hops. I'm wondering if its going to change the flavor much. Il post again when I find out.

These days you take what you can get...

The nice thing about htis recipe, is you can really sub out a number of different hops. SO long as you keep it drinkable and not overly hoppy.

I've subbed in Northern Brewer and tettnang before. Just make sure to adjust your IBU's for higher/lower alphas.

Oh wait a minute, I do have Centennial hops. So much for using all Cascade, ha ha. Oh and the first time I made this beer, I messed up. I used 2 ounces of hops instead of one ounce. No wonder the taste was very astringent, and tannin like.

Iv also been using 5.2 stabilizer, and it works wonders with my water. I had a big tannin problem, but no more.

If my Bud Light Brother of mine likes this batch, it will be a good thing.

Hello BM! I'm very positive your recipe will be the next i try. I gotta question, do you have the recipe for Partial Mash?

I still cannot do full boils so all grain is out of the question for now.

Thanks in advance,
Mawa

Just kegged this beer on Wednesday, wow, this is going to be great. I think the BMC crowd will suck this stuff down. THinking about adding a little more on the finishing hops next time.

Just brewed your centennial blonde for the first time with my all-grain setup! It was a great experience with the OG coming out @ 1040 . The color looked real good too. My buddy was brewing what he called a real beer( b/c of the 4%) but I'm sure he'll have to eat/drink his words when this bad boy turns out. Thanks for the recipe and the informative posts.

Tapped my first keg of this yesterday. It's one of those brews that you can drink all day long without getting mung mouth. I'll move that recipe into my 'keepers' folder.
