Hey thanks for your input. I'm gonna brew it this weekend. I'll let you know how it turns out

So I brewed this yesterday and fermentation is going well. What's the turn around time on this? My OG was 1.057. I have a large pipeline going so waiting is no big deal

Without looking what's been posted on the the recipe, six weeks would be pretty standard. Three for fermentation and three for carbonation.

Obviously, four weeks is quite doable. The carbonation starts to mellow after a few weeks. I'm assuming that you keg. If you don't I'd stick with six weeks on bottling.

Ok thanks. Yes, I keg but like I said, it could be a few months until I get to it.

With that kind of delay drinking it, you should be rather pleased when you pull your first sample.

Brewed the AG (BIAB) version of this almost exactly, except for a few variations in the Cascade boiling times. Just took a taste-test last night after two weeks in primary, and WOW! That'll do. PERFECT balance, great Cascade nose, beautiful color. I can't wait to bottle this bad boy.

Any recommendations on corn sugar amounts for bottling this one? Put about 5 oz for 5 gal in the bottling bucket for my last batch (Irish Red, O.G. 1.039) and it was a little too bubbly. I definitely don't want to over-carbonate this one.

Btw I tapped this about 2 weeks ago and it's nearly gone. Very delicious!

That's why I called it the house Amber...I should always have some on tap or ready to go.

Brewed the extract version of this recipe last weekend, I'm excited to see how it turns out! I brew a lot of hard cider but this is the first beer that I've brewed in quite a while.

Have you heard of people getting high initial SGs with this recipe? I followed the recipe as written, but ended up with an initial SG of 1.080. From what I've read it seems like most people start in the 1.055 - 1.060 range. Also, does it make much of a difference whether you dry-hop with pellet or whole hops? The brew store where I bought my hops only had pellet hops, so this is what I'm using. I'm thinking that I may have to rack it to secondary to clear some of the pellet mush thats developed. It's looking like I may be end up with a very strong, slightly cloudy brew. Thanks for the recipe!

The higher gravity can be due to mash efficiency. Factors like quality of grind, temperature, water-grist ratio, water pH, and sparging practices.

Take no offense, the amount you are off seems to be a mistake. My recipe has an assumed 75% efficiency. Were you really much more efficient? If it's a mistake could it be a difference of actual vs planned grain bill weight, or gravity measurement. Did you comp for the temp during the gravity check.

What do you think?

As pellet vs whole leaf. There is not much difference in regards to taste. Pellets tend to drop into the secondary, but not all. Whole leaf tends to float due to air pockets in the leaves. Your yield will be lower with whole leaf due to absorption. Pellets leave debris in your secondary which can affect racking. Whole leaves can clog a racking cane.

Either way take your time racking to your bottling bucket or keg. Don't be greedy and try for every last drop. It will just cause anguish over sediment or a clogged cane.

Cheers
