You're probably right...it was on one of those danged islands...

How did this partial mash turn out Ale to the Chief?

Tasted the first bottle on Friday and it's the best beer I've made to date. I followed the recipe exactly and can see this being my first 10g batch in the near future.

Kudos to BM on a fantastic recipe.
Glad it turned out well. I just floated my last keg two nights ago and I've been too busy to brew much besides house ales lately.

I gotta get me some Kona going again...

I finally was able to try the real thing and it makes me want to give this a shot. I want to start doing PMs, but i do have a question. I'm not really set up yet to do cold conditioning, unless i take over the extra fridge entirely. Would i be better served to wait until it gets cold outside to try to make this beer so that i can condition in the garage, or will i be okay just giving it a shot?

I should also ask Biermuncher, how many gallons does the PM recipe you suggested yield? Again, i'm not really set up for anything over 5 gallons right now and i am just trying to get all my facts before deciding between this beer and another.

That's for a five gallon batch.

If you can wrap a wet t-shirt around your carboy to keep the fermentation temps at around 67 degrees...you should be fine.

The cold conditioning (45ish degrees) is a luxury for any beer. But not being able to do that should not stop you. I wouldn't hesitate.

Okay, so i have a couple more questions and i hope no one minds. I didn't realize until just got back to mississippi from my trip to my home brew store (in Tulsa, okla.) that the cascade hops they handed me were from Argentina and have a much lower AA (3.2%).

A quick search turned up a little information about this variety, but the differences are well beyond my limited brewing experience. My question is, should i adjust the recipe or try to order the variety suggested in the recipe from someone online?

Second, i've been reading the BYO article about doing a PM with late addition and am curious about the process and was hoping that someone with some experience with this method could give me a hand putting together a rough brew schedule for this recipe using this method. I don't have the capacity yet to do the full boil so i want to make sure i add the hops at the right time and extract at the proper moments so that my brew comes out close to the recipe.

4.5# Extra Light DME
2# Marris Otter
1.5# Munich
.75# Honey Malt

.50 Oz Centennial (60)
.25 Oz Cascade (40)
.25 Oz Cascade (30)
.25 Oz Cascade (20)
.25 Oz Cascade (10)
.25 Oz Mt Hood or Hallertau (5)

Dry hop secondary with .5 Oz Centennial for 7 days.

These are the ingredients i purchased for this recipe as per Biermuncher's suggestion.

If anyone can help, i'd really appreciate it. If this belongs in another forum, my bad, just let me know and i'll post it there.

This is the right forum.

If you have the patience and can get them...I'd go for the American Cascade. The flavor is distinctly different. You'd have a good beer, but not a Kona clone. I think if you take the tough route and wait for the right hops...months from now when you're still enjoying this beer...you'll be glad you did.
