Did a half batch of this. What a great beer. Crisp, slight citrus flavor, bubbly, a bit dry. 2 weeks on the primary, and then a week and a half bottle conditioning. Very pleased!

I have been wanting to try this recipe since early spring. I know it is more like a summer beer, but I mashed in at 4:00 PM tonight.

This went very well. All my additions and boil times were right on. I exceeded my target gravity by a good bit. I expected 1.046 and got just under 1.060. I think I may have underestimated my strike and sparge water, but I'm happy. I got 4 gallons of VERY clear wort. Rather than my usual sloppy method, I carefully siphoned from the BK this time. The hose was crystal clear. When I saw it fogging up, I pulled it.
I have seen other people win medals often enough. It is time for my name to get called.

It started bubbling after about 12 hours. Yesterday it was fermenting at a respectable rate, and this morning, still regular airlock activity. The wort was beautiful, and nice aroma coming out of the airlock. I have high hopes for this one!

The grist would be fine as a lager brew. This grain bill however was designed to give a lite tasting, lager like characteristic without the time and diacytel rest required for a lager.

I was thinking of lagering this as well. My plan is to change the bittering hops to Saaz (60min). Use Calif 2112 lager yeast. As soon as I get time that's the plan.

I'm brewing now and don't have the crystal. I have cascade, fuggles, saaz, and northern brewer to go along with the willamette. Suggestions?

I think I would go with some cascade. I'm a big fan of cascades. I recently made this with tettnang and liberty and turned out great.
