I don't think you can buy maris otter in an extract. But if there was an "English" type extract, you could use that. Generally, 1 pound base-malt = .75 pounds LME. So, for about 10 pounds marris otter, you could use 7.5 of an English LME if you could find it.

If you can do a full volume boil make the small jump and brew it BIAB, just need a big bag.

Bump. Just moved a batch of this from the primary to a keg for dry hop/conditioning. FG measured out at 1.008, and the sample tasted awesome. I brewed on 10/8/11, so 14 days on primary. (The recipe calls for 4 days primary @ 67, 10 days secondary @ 67. I decided to let it sit longer in the primary because I was fermenting at 63-64 degrees and because I am lazy. Fermentation took off and seemed done by day 4, but no need to rush.)

Thanks for the great recipe, can't wait to drink this!

It was great. Keg is kicked already. I've been making bottles from things I've kegged and taking them to a Sunday football get together, and this one has been a crowd favorite. These are from mostly BMC types! (It's great getting comments from folks suggesting I should open up a brewpub.)

Anyway, it's definitely on the re-brew list. (According to BeerSmith, I made this with 1/2 2 row, 1/2 MO, used S-04 yeast...but I thought I remembered doing this all with MO...maybe I was trying to use up some 2 Row.)

i have 2.0 cascade, and 2.0 centennial for my 5 gal batch.
looks like i need to put it off a week and get more!

the LHBS is charging (sit down now guys) $4.50 AN ONCE for cascades. thats 18 bucks for 4 oz, 2 cascade, 2 centennial.

i dont think i can afford to brew pales
You can buy Cascade for $11 per pound at Hop Shack: http://www.hopsshack.com/store/HP1031.html. Of course, if you are like me, you end up doing a couple $70 orders for various hops on sale since the extra shipping cost per pound is minimal. For example, Columbus @ $7 and Galena @ $7.59. By the time I was done, I bought 2# cascade, 2# Galena, 1# Brewers Gold, 2# Williamette, 2# Nugget, 2# Spalt Select, 1# Centennail and 2# Columbus. OUCH.

+1 for hopsshack. I bought 4 lbs from them and they are great. Called me to confirm everything and they have amazing deals.
