I brewed a batch of this beer this Sunday. I was shooting for a half recipe (5.75 gallons). I halved the amounts of all the grains from the original recipe for 11.5 gallons. BeerTools Pro calculated I should have gotten an OG of 1.040 at 75% efficiency. To my surprise, I ended up with 5.4 gallons of 1.050 wort post-boil. I can attribute some of the higher than expected gravity to a slightly low post-boil volume, but I must have gotten much better than 75% efficiency. I believe the efficiency increase is due to a finer crush on the grain. On this batch, I crushed the 2-row using my buddy's Barley Crusher, and I definitely got a finer crush than my LHBS provides. Hopefully, this brew isn't too underhopped. I think it will be fine as it isn't a hoppy style and should be well-attenuated also.

I've got a couple of ounces of Czech Saaz @ 2.3 AA, looking for a home. Do you think that it would work for this one?

I'm thinking about brewing this one this weekend as my first 10 gallon batch.

That sounds like a perfect hop.

Darn - After looking at passload's pictures I'm wondering if this is gonna carb slowly. I haven't anything other than Edworts cider thats been this clear.

What you guys think, rack the 2ndary to the bottling bucket and not worry about dusting up the yeast a little or will it carb even clear as a bell?

I can see through the carboy....

I'm 15 minutes into the boil on this. Having made BM's Centennial Blonde, I can't see how this couldn't be a winner.

Mash went great, hit my numbers dead on. I have never used corn or rice in a brew. Tasting the wort I noticed a sweetness that was different from barley, and I liked it.

Making a 5.5G batch, I used 6lbs of 2 Row, 2lbs of Flaked Maize and 1lb of Minute White Rice, sparged slowly and remained problem free. I'm pretty excited about this.

I can't decide on US-05 or Notty though....

Go with US-05. Mine has cleared really well.

I just checked this morning before work and yeast was pitched sunday night at 10:30, dry mind you, and it is fully rocking this morn.

I was concerned i didnt aerate enough but the dry yeasts are supposed to not need aeration any way. oh well.

will dump yeast this weekend and rack in another week and let you know how it turns out.
