Brewed this up as my first AG in a 5G Rubbermaid MLT with SS Braid. Hit 80% efficiency, so thats what the recipe is drafted for, feel free to adjust if you get less efficiency. I kegged this after a 2 week primary, 2 week secondary, and tasting it (with little carbonation) after 2 days, it is delicious! Can't wait until I get more CO2 into this... Mmm mmm.

I love Amarillo Hops and hit, in my opinion, the perfect amount for this to be a good session drinker for homebrewers and BMC folk alike.

Still enjoying this today - definitely one of my best beers brewed to date. Here is a quick iPhone picture of it. It's definitely a light, crisp, clear beer... Head retention is OK for a while (pic is after sitting 10+ mins), but it has some good lacing for such a light bodied beer. It's usually even better in a pint glass, but I'm digging this glass lately, so that's what I'm using.

Looks good. My concern is the sweetness with 1.25lb in Crystal malts. I see you mash @ 152F, but is it dry enough?

Well, I actually missed my mash temp of 152' or my answer may be different. Probably mashed this at 149F or so... it finished right around 1.010 believe it or not, so its just about perfect.

If I were to try it again and mash at the appropriate temp (152), I would probably go with 1lb Victory, an extra .25lb. of pale malt, and drop .25lb each of crystal and cara-pils. (EDITED RECIPE ABOVE TO REFLECT THIS CHANGE)

However, it turned out so good I'm tempted to just brew it the same way next time!

Cool, I'll try mashing it @ 150F and leave the bill as is...

Please make sure you adjust the bill for efficiency, if you don't get the 80% that I normally do... Not bragging here at all, just something that might be easily overlooked when you grab a recipe and brew it! Sometimes you don't consider the OP's efficiency, boil size, or other fairly straight-forward things!

Definitely let me know how yours turns out. I love it... but I also love Amarillo hops and easy drinking beers...

Yeah I noticed that. Depending on the grain amount, I adjust my efficiency accordingly. In this case, I'll probably assume 77-78% efficiency. Cheers...

I think I will give this a try in partial mash format this weekend:

Mini mash (BIAB):

1.5kg Pilsner
500g Victory
500g Vienna or Munich (depending on LHBS)
250g Caramel 20L
100g Carapils

+3kg of LME light colored
With Same hop schedule

This supposedly gives me 1.062 SG and 29IBU's

For the yeast I have S-04 and Nottingham. Not sure which to use...

I'd use the Nottingham...

I would also try to bring the gravity down to around 1.050-1.052 and keep the 30ish IBU. That's how it was meant to be enjoyed. It's still not bitter with that IBU/Gravity ratio b/c the Cascade I use as the bittering hop (60min) is obviously a pretty smooth hop and the Amarillo throughout is just oh so tasty...

If I bump down the extract to 1.5-2 kg I get around those numbers. Will definitely try the Nottingham then!
