Yeah, I guess it does.

You guys are just wrong... that's why I love this friggin' place.

Just FYI.....

I brewed up a 5.5 gallon version of this recipe in late December, except I converted to partial mash, swapped the Centennial for Galena and used Wyeast 1028 Smackpack. The beer turned out great! The last bit of greenness is aging out and in the next week or two I'll do a side by side.

But after having a bottle of EF a few days ago, I'll second what you said, this recipe is damn close!

Thanks again for sharing.

Ohiobrewtus,

I was just looking at your recipe and it is fairly similar to mine, other than you subbed my favorite grain, Special B, for Munich. If you have any left, I would love to do a swap with you and check out the differences. Mine went into secondary today, so it won't be ready for a bit. If you are interested in a swap, send me a PM.

I'm bringing a keg of this to NHC, so we can sample both of them then!

There could be a multitude of reasons why you missed your OG, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. It will still make for a nice beer.

I don't have an extract or PM version, but if I were going to do one I'd start by steeping all of the specialty grains in the amounts listed above (cut in half for a 5 gallon batch), then add extract to hit 1.060.

Cool beans!!! This batch will run out by then, but SWMBO has required this to be our house beer, so I am sure there will be plenty more.
