Thanks for posting this recipe. The lower IBUs make this appealing to even the non-hop heads.

Just brewed this up for a friends baby shower in a couple months. I've been getting g really good efficiency and ended up with a 1.070 OG and aimed for 66 IBUs. Hit most of my temps within a degree or so, so now we just play the waiting game. Can't wait to try it.

Has anyone tried mixing up all the hops on this and then adding them at the 30,15,5 marks?

Drinking my second batch of this recipe now. Very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

Brewed this up last month - I had a stuck mash-tun when mashing/sparging, but it wasn't too big of a deal. Followed the recipe precisely, and added about .5G of water due to too much boil off.

Left in primary for one week, moved to secondary (and dry hopped) for 2 weeks, and kegged in about 5 days ago.

The taste is very good - smooth hoppy, very drinkable, very tasty. Definitely a keeper.

Still feeling my way with all grain. I like this recipe, but we are not yet kegging and so force carbing is not in our wheelhouse yet.
Any reason why this recipe wont' work just as well if we do the usual, priming sugar in solution and then bottle?

Thanks as always.

Don’t give it a second thought…. Bottle it. I have this recipe in the primary, and will definitely go to the bottle. Easier to share, give away to friends, and ship to fellow brewers and family.

I brewed this last week and tried my first sip after testing gravity. Flat, warm and still unfinished this beer is without a doubt going to be the best one I have made so far. It is recipe #12 for me and my fifth all grain batch (biab). WOW! I opened up the bucket to check it out and was shocked that the krausen had dropped and the beer was clear (I've got a two-week old right next to it that hasn't dropped yet). Already at 1.010 gravity after only a week, and I have to concur that the bitterness is right where it should be. Got a very happy feeling about this batch.

Thanks for a great recipe.

JHCOAB! This is a good beer! Thanks for posting the recipe. Even being my 2nd all grain batch it turned out amazing. I look forward to giving this beer a regular rotation.
