Brewed #1 two weeks ago. I'll report back in a month or so.

I brewed the recipe I posted but changed a couple things. I did:

11# MO
1 1/2# Munich
3/4# C20
3/4# Caramunich I

I should have stick to the 12# MO

The hop additions I changed the first three to 0.75 oz and left the last at 1oz. My IBU was a bit over 40.

It was similar to Dales but not exact. In my opinion it was better than Dales.

I haven't tried the first so I can't speak for that one.

Did a 3 gallon all grain version of this yesterday, so I will report on the taste when it's done! Might have a few more IBUs, and my OG was a couple point high, but I think it'll be good

There is no dry hopping? I definetly get a decent nose fron this beer, enough to think there maybe some additions at flameout or dry hop. Hmmmm, brewing it tomorrow might just add some columbus as dry hop after 7 days.

The 4 day keg conditioned sample is good. 10 more days to open season on this batch.

I brewed Recipe #1 on April 17th. I used S-O5 for yeast, mashed at 152. It went from 1.069 to the final gravity of 1.107. I had 83% efficiencies. With all of that being said, I scored a 6-pack of Dale's Pale Ale and 4 of us compared the two, while brewing. Everyone liked the homebrew better than the "real thing". Very nice - not much I would change.

I brewed a 5 gal PM version based closely on #2

6 lb Golden Light DME
1.5 lb Munich 10
1 lb C15
1 lb C40

1 oz Northern Brewer @60
2 oz Cascade @ 20
1 oz Columbus @10
1 oz Centennial at flameout

US-05

Tried it pre-bottled and with a Dale's Can. Color was spot on, malt and hops very similar, but hard to really tell at this point. Looking forward to trying this in a couple weeks

I know this is an old thread, but today I'm brewing a christmas Barleywine. I am making a 5gal batch and the ingredients are very similar to DPA. I live here in CO and love this beer, so I bought some Muntons DME and am going to keep sparging the barleywine grains (so much grain for a 5 gal) and mix up to the right OG, then follow the 1st hop schedule and see what happens. I'll be using US-05 yeast, since I always have some around. Wish me luck and I will keep you posted.

PS. I've had DPA from the brewery and they think that it should be drank withing 30 days of bottling/kegging, so you don't loose any of the hop aroma. I agree with them!

I brewed niquejim's recipe last week at my homebrew club's first Big Brew Day at a local brewery. (We had a nice write up in a local paper, and then had a reporter from another, slightly bigger, local paper attend our monthly meeting and interview a few of us). This was my first 10 gallon batch with new pots, it was pretty cold and I was in a bit of a rush because I was teaching and we got a late start. Needless to say, I screwed up pretty bad: when I mashed in and checked the temperature I was shocked when I was only at 140*f. I didn't have enough headroom in my rectangular cooler to top off with boiling water so I though a quasi-concoction mash might help. I drained off a gallon or two of wort, heated it up to about 200+ and put it back into the mash tun and crossed my fingers, anticipating I'd hit high on the ABV.

The yeast were slow to start but then developed a nice krausen. Six days later and I still have a very thick, frothy "head"/krausen on top. My OG was 1.071 (and I was shooting for 1.058 according to BeerSmith). Four days later I was down to 1.014; five days I was at 1.010; today (six days out) I'm still dropping to 1.088 (clocking in at 8.3 ABV, so far).

Samples from my refractomer eyedropper taste nice, and surprisingly still a bit sweet (I was expecting it to be bone dry).

Krausen @ day 1:


Krausen @ day 2:


Any thoughts about the long-lasting krausen or is this just CO2 foam? Any guesses how low the gravity is going to drop?
