Starting this this weekend as my second all grain. I haven't gone through all the posts, but has anyone added the crystal hops a little later than at the start of the boil? I was thinking of holding back about .25 oz for a 5 minute addition to get just a bit of aroma at the end.

Do you think that kolsch yeast would work for this? Wyeast 2565 is what I used recently and I will be washing it in a few weeks when I transfer to the secondary.

Kolsch yeast would work great. Try to keep it on the cooler side and if possible let it sit at around 55 degrees for a week or so toward the end.

So i substituted hallertau for the crystal since my lhbs was out, and read on the package that they were coming in at a whopping 7.1%! Should I do anything different, or just toss em in and see how it goes?


suggestions?

Well, I just kegged 10 gallons of this. 5 with Notty and 5 with S-05. I must say, the S-05 produced a much better beer.

Once again, great recipe BM.

Brewed this today with many firsts and beat the rain by minutes but still had to chill under the patio.

1. Full Wort Hop. Changed this last minute with 4% Spalter hops (5 gallon batch)
2. Whirlfloc, hoping this drops everything out.
3. Whirlpooling, didn't do ****. No center mound or anyhthing, just a slight decrease in sediment around edge of pot. Ended up dumping/straining rest into carboy.
4. S05, looking forward to this.

I held back about .25 oz hallertau and threw them in at 15 min remaining. Also used irish moss for the first time, I'm looking forward to seeing if I notice a difference.

Ended up with plenty of wort in the fermenter (5.5 gal+) which was better than my first all grain try (only got 4.5 gal) but the OG was a little low, 1.036.

I like using Hallertau for cream and blonde ales - lighter beers like this. You can plug the amounts, AA% and boil time into BeerSmith or one of the other calculators to figure out how to hit the IBU level you want.
