Your first real beer was 9% ABV, you're quite the ambitious brewer!

Remember to use a blowoff! You'll have rocket fuel!

You know,I was going to buy my wife the Cooper's OS lager kit with brewing sugar she liked so much. But I may just put this ingredient list together & give her that as a present for her b-day instead.
She likes'em a little on the malty side. She likes honey/blueberry wheat's as well. Not to mention ancient history,fossils,digging dyno bones. This sort of thing is right up our alley! I may just pick it all up Friday.

Go for it! Remember, even though the original recipe says it's a 6.5 gal batch, it's really a 5 gal batch or else it will come out a bit watered down like mine.

Put this one in the fermenter last Tuesday. I came out to an OG of 1.090. I think it might have been because I had 8.3 lbs of extract in all and just put it all in. I don't know the math to figure out if .3 lbs could account for that extra gravity, but whatever. Also my LHBS was out of Simcoe so I substituted in Falconer's Flight and I couldn't find muscat grape juice concentrate anywhere and threw in a liter of just regular white grape juice concentrate. Gonna let it hang out in the fermenter for another 3 weeks instead of doing a secondary. I'd rather not mess with it if I don't have to.

Don't worry if you couldn't get simcoe. Since it's all bittering, any hop would work just adjust it to get the right IBUs.

My brew of this has been in the fermentor for a week now. I'm about to transfer to the secondary. I used 8lbs. Light DME and because of what seems to be a nationwide lack of simcoe hops right now I just used some left over Northern Brewer hops from my last brew. Oh and I did a 3.5 gallon boil and topped off to 5 gallons in the fermentor, I mixed the solution very well and got a good OG so it's definitely not a 6 gallon batch. My OG was 1.0865 (i put the 5 there because it wasn't quite 1.087 but almost). I used a small pinch of saffron, roughly 20 threads worth. I was able to get the proper grape juice concentrate from the wine section of northernbrewer.com.

I didn't put a blow off hose on it but I did have a little bubble out of my airlock the night after adding the grape juice. No explosion though. My primary is a 6 gallon fermentor so maybe the extra headspace helped out there.

I'll keep everyone posted on how she turns out.

I am going to brew this up, but want to do AG to save some money. Beer smith converting it at 12 lbs of 2 Row and that is it. Then it says 2.5lbs of honey.

Anyone else think there should be anything else added? Seems like a really basic recipe, but I guess since you are only using light extract it would be.
