Hi - just did my first batch of of Centennial Blonde all grain. Missed the OG a bit at 1.036. Finished brewing on Saturday evening and added 1056 yeast. First thing on Sunday the airlock was showing vigorous signs of fermentation. Was very active thru Monday, but by Tuesday evening it appeared pretty inactive. No signs of activity today (Wed). Temp was around 66 or 68 and has since cooled to about 62 which is the lower end of 1056 which says it's good to 60 degrees. I haven't taken a hydrometer reading which I'll do in the next day or so. Could it really have pretty much fermented out in 2 days?[/quote]

Update. Kegged and carbed. Pulled a pint tonight and wasn't quite sure if it was any good. Pulled another...still not sure. Pulled 2 more. OK - I was sure on the first one, but just wanted to keep going. This stuff is awesome! Thanks for the recipe!!

So I'm drinking my first one today. I wanted to ahem do a trial run before my saturday Memorial day cookout. I think this thing will surely be a hit. I can see right through it thanks to the gelatin and it has a balanced taste that should appeal to my guests.

Thanks for the recipe I have a feeling it will be brewed again.....soon.

Get it boiling and then add hops.
the sched:
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%AA] (55 min)
0.25 oz Centennial [9.50%] (35 min)
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (20 min)
0.25 oz Cascade [7.80%] (5 min)

If your AA's are different, adjust accordingly to get the recipe's 21 IBUs. I believe the Cent hops were high so BM adjusted the boil time downward to get 21 IBU.

I brewed this Last Sunday. I had to use American 2 Row Pale with 1.5 SRM instead of 2.0 SRM and my Carapils was only 1.5 SRM as well. I just took a gravity reading and wow is this beer light (in color) the gravity is at 1.008. I plan to bottle this in a couple days. Pretty sure its done now. ABV is about 4% so should be a descent quaffer, maybe SWMBO will like it this time. Will post pics when its done carbing, as light as it is I expect to be drinking this out of a bottle in just a week and a half.

I just BMBF'd the end of my keg of this (2nd time around). There wasn't much to bottle
We have enjoyed every one, as has everyone that has ever tasted it. Thanks again.

Just ordered the grain for a 10g batch of this. I have plenty of cascade and centennial hops laying around. This should be a nice session beer for the summer!
