I just brewed a 5g batch of this and used 2 oz of amarillo on this batch. I think I may have added too many hops for the beer style, as I forgot to half the recipe when it came to hops...

My propane ran out after about an hour of boiling, but I did get a 90 min mash in.

OG was 1.042

I think my efficiency was up to par.

I also added a half lb of carapils to this recipe.

I also am using wlp029 I heard this stuff gives a great finish if kept low fermenting

I will let yall know how it turns out, the airlock is bubbling a little now and it smells gooooood. I think this will turn out alright, its my first all grain and from the reviews it seems like you can't go wrong with this recipe!

Although the attentuation is a problem I should have forseen, I did not add yeast nutrient, so well see if she goes down or not.

Brewed yesterday with minute rice. Used Wlp862 Cry havoc ale/lager yeast. Will try ale fermentation temps this time around. Let's see how this turns out.

I wouldnt worry about the problem you had. I had so many problems with brewing this beer and it still turned out wonderful.. I had 3 stuck mashes. My plan was to recirc with a RIMS tube and after the 3rd time I said the heck with it and just did a normal infusion. I had other minor issues too. Beer wants to be beer, it will turn out fine. As long as you have good sanitation methods.

Have nothing to do this afternoon and just filled my propane tanks, so am going to give this recipe a try. I also have a pack of Wyeast 1338 - European Ale - yeast hanging around with nothing to do, so I am thinking about using it in the recipe. Only other difference is I am using half Belgian Pilsner and half 2-row.

Just brewed up a 3gallon BIAB batch, and slightly upped the rice per some comments. Can't wait to see how it turns out - this is the first batch that both myself and SWMBO are looking forward to!

Thanks BierMuncher

I had a great batch of this yesterday at a local homebrew fest (beerstock). It was a big hit with a BMC buddy that was with us.
