It also seems like he doesnt even rack to secondary. Would it hurt to rack to a secondary rather than crash cooling it? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Jah,

That Nottingham yeast is very resilient and will take off without problems. As for racking to secondary, there seems to be a debate about whether or not it's a vital step. Basically, if you want a clear beer, use some whirfloc and do a secondary (if you can get it cold at some point, even better). Otherwise, if you don't mind a little haze, doing a longer primary and skipping secondary is just fine and the effects on the beer are negligible.

This recipe is so easy and solid that you can basically do anything to it, barring sanitation issues, and you're going to come out with a tasty beer.

I have one question - since I recently made it with an extract mod, I lost out on the Vienna. What flavor characteristics am I losing out on?

I steeped 1/4lb Carapils with the 1/2lb Crystal 10L just to add a little something to the beer since I was missing the Vienna and had the Carapils left over, but I really don't know what I'm doing

It will be beer. It isn't EdWort's Haus Pale.

Bad n00b, no biscuit.

Here's a generally helpful chart on malt charachteristics: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/Malts_Chart

Unfortunately, it doesn't say much about Vienna.

The Vienna adds a malty character to the beer. It is lighter and sweeter than Munich though.

Ok, so I should steep more Crystal next time in place of the Vienna, instead of the Carapils...

You should really seek out the Vienna. It works beautifully. You want I should pick some up for you when I go to my LHBS on Saturday? It is only a buck, maybe a buck fifty a pound. Not sure about shipping from Dallas...

Home Brew Mart says they have it. http://www.homebrewmart.com/homebrew-supplies/grain.htm . Here is the map: http://www.homebrewmart.com/directions_maplv.htm

Yeah, I went there for the supplies to make the batch, but the sign on the bucket said "MASH ONLY" ... Next time I'll get it, but I need to know how much to steep in order to get comparable flavors that you get from mashing.
