I just wanted to add another picture of this very crisp and refreshing beer! This was my first attempt at BIAB and it worked great. This is a picture of the batch I brewed only 17 days ago...

Thanks for the recipe. I made this and it is as advertised. I'll try to keep some of this on hand for 'them'.

So I am brewing my second batch of this stuff. going to brew 10 gallons and split the batches between two 5 gallon fermenters. half on Wyeast cream ale blend and half on US 05 to compare the differences. The first batch I made was with US 05 and I really like the result, but want to see if I can get it even cleaner.

This is going to be for my brother in laws birthday on November third that leaves me 3 weeks from brew date to have this ready, do you think that's enough time?

Any tips on how to get this nice in clear and clean and ready to go by then? My plan was 10-14 days primary , cold crash with gelatin for 3 - 5 days, then keg and hold at 40 degrees in till serving... tips appreciated

Just tasted my third batch after 2 weeks in the keg. Spectacular. Clean and crisp. A delightful experience without any fireworks. Thanks BierMuncher!

I like the taste of this recipe made with both US-05 and Cream Ale blends but the cream ale yeast usually takes longer to finish and then to drop out of suspension. Thus, the us-05 might be batch to try to have completely finished in the short time you have to work with. Have you ever tried transferring the beer to the keg, cold crash for 24 hours and then add the gelatin while the gas is on for the keg? I do this method and it work just fine if I am trying to get something ready sooner.

You have a good point. I'll take the US 05 to the bday and save the cream ale yeast batch for myself....

On another note, Im planning on using a small amount of clean, but high alpha Magnum for a single bittering addition. Since the hops aren't really meant to shine in this one, I'm thinking this will be ok. I'm doing .6 oz of 14.7% Magnum at 60min for about 15 IBUs. Does this pose any problems? Brewing tomorrow so advice appreciated!

Brewed this 28 days ago. It's been on gas 7 days. I like it more and more with each glass. My lady just took a sip and said it was good. Normally she wouldn't like a beer like this so that's exciting. I did dry hop in keg with 1/4 once of Cascade leaves using a ss herb ball but I'm not sure that little bit is coming off. Very refreshing on this hot day in southern California!

Just wanted to add my experience using Nottingham Ale yeast.

I made 3 batches of this before using US-05 and always had a fruity (green apple) taste for the first 2 weeks in the bottle, then it would crisp up with more aging.

With the Nottingham the initial taste is much crisper and after 3-4 weeks it is SUPER crisp, very BMC like, more so than it is with US-05. Also the Notty tends to flocculate a bit better so the beer clears faster especially when cold conditioned for 1-2 weeks before drinking.
