I think it would be easier to just brew the whole damned thing on Friday. Make the kitchen an absolute mess, and make sure you've had enough homebrew to make your speech slurred when your wife arrives home. One way or another, you'll get the freedom to brew when you want to.
OH that would go over well

Actually found 1oz of Willamette and brewed with that..

On day two and the yeast are going nuts. Krausen is over a 1/2" thick and the yeast are just running around like crazy . This recipe is taking to lagering well.

I have only seen one batch go this crazy and it was an ale going at 70 degrees. Where this is running at 51 degrees, and self-generating at least 5 degrees.

I think it will be awesome.

My modified recipe and results are here:

Took a SG reading today! Here are the stats:
OG: 1.048
SG (Day 12): 1.014
Attenuation: 70.8%
ABV: 4.46%

It sounds like 70% attenuation is acceptable for US-05, so I'll recheck on Day 14, rack to secondary with gelatin, then keg...

One question though, what CO2 volume are people kegging this at? This will be my first time kegging, and I'm hoping to not lose half my beer due to foam! Any recommendations on burst carbing or force carbing? I've read all the kegging stickies and I'm debating how patient I can be...

And just because we haven't had a picture in this thread in awhile:



My hydro sample smelled and tasted great! I can't wait to get it cold and carbonated!

You can use instant grits. I'm not sure if it's a 1:1 conversion though. I know its been discussed recently (within the last 5 pages). Someone else might be able to chime in...

I've done some research and it looks like it is about a 1:1 conversion with no cereal mash. LHBS also did not have any Crystal so I am substituting with Hallertaur.
