It was more the addition of FWH & a 90 min boil. Had I waited until 60 min left in boil, then it wouldn't have been so bad I'm sure. I did a lot of firsts w this beer, and learned a lot...i'd need to use less hops as FWH if I'm going to do that, and longer mash=better attenuation.

How much did you FWH and what was the AA%? I haven't had any issues with FWHs. In fact, I think its smoother and less harsh. The difference between 60 & FWH isn't that much IBU wise. Not saying you are wrong, just curious for more info.

6# 2- row
1.5# rye
1.5# flaked corn

0.5oz cascade fwh
0.5oz centennial @ 60min
0.5oz cascade @ 10min
0.5oz centenial dry hop x7days

I used the above recipe. I think thecascade were 5.4% and the centennial were 9.1%. I think part of it is that there's no residual sweetness to the beer...it fermented down to 1.004! I also boiled for 90 minutes, so that's about an additional 40% utilization from the fwh. Oh, and I use RO water for my brewing, so it's as close to pure water as possible.

I took this to my homebrew meeting tonight, and it went over great...I guess I'm too critical of my own beer. It has settled a little bit now, and I like it a lot more then the 1-week-in {eg samples. All-in-all a good beer!

Re-brewed 10g of this on Saturday. Used Chico yeast from Flying Fish Brewery. 60 min mash @150, 60 min boil. Looks like it's about done fermenting already! Gotta love pitching active yeast from a brewery's tank!

So the first 5 gal keg of this turned out FANTASTIC! I'll be brewing this often as my house light beer!

Made this last night. What a comedy of errors!
I took gravity samples, but they melted my hydrometer tube. I got a gravity reading in the pot, but it was so low I freaked out. I figured I got terrible efficiency. The color was so pale that I figured I was boiling next to nothing but water. I ran around the house and threw in about 1/3 pound of DME (it was all I had) at flameout.
The OG ended up being 1.064! I guess I got the efficiency, but now I'm guessing I'm going to have a hop issue with the gravity being too high. Solutions? Should I dry hop? Will it just be great as is? RDWHAHB?
