That looks familiar.

You're making me thirsty.

I kegged it a week ago and it sat a little undercarbonated for a week. Now I'm zeroing in on the correct carb level, but it tastes almost skunky. Any thoughts?

I wonder if using Cream Ale Yeast is driving this taste...

I was going to try this but AHS is out of Centennial and Cascade, the yeast is out of stock due on May 1
I have 1 - 1.5 oz of Willimette - will that be the same?

Funny you say that. I just tapped a Willamette Blonde two weeks ago.

It's a good blonde. Not quite as "zippy" as the Centennial, but the neighbors enjoyed it when I bottled up a 12-pack for a BBQ the other night.

It would be just fine with Willamette subbed in for Centennial.

can you describe 'zippy'

I'm mashing this brew right now, should be ready for first running in about 15 min. My inventory was wrong, I did not have any Vienna on hand, so I substituted Victory. I don't think it should affect the final product too much. Perhaps a bit nuttier in it's backbone? Wedding's coming up in 3 weeks, so I'm looking forward to having this available for the friends!

Nice choice. I'd say 10 days in the primary and 20 days of crash cooling in the keg and you should have some pretty clear beer.

All in all that was my smoothest AG brew day to date. 70% efficiency, a new high! One other small change, I went with Wyeast 1056, American Ale. Mostly for variety's sake, but also my last two brews I used Nottingham, and I'm just not too into it.

BierMuncher, I would like to use this recipe, but I'm not a big fan of dry yeast.
Can you make a recommendation for a similar yeast from Wyeast Labs. Thanks
