Whoops I guess I will find out what I am in for. I think it will be ok, I have another package that I could always hydrate and throw in if things don't go well.

Yeah, I should have noticed that, my mind has just learned to ignore those I guess.

I am hoping to see some nice krauzen when I get home at any rate.

Well, here is what happens if you don't hydrate your yeast.



It is the one on the right by the way. My Apfelwein is not starting off so fast because the yeast said to hydrate and I didn't because I thought who needs to read directions

This is going to be my next batch but I have a question..

I like hops and IPA's. It seems like there is more hops here than in my last IPA. Just how hoppy is this?

Will Blue Moon drinkers like this when they visit or will it be way to much for them?

Did I mention I'm gonna make it anyway... for me!

This beer uses all Cascade hops which have a medium range AA. Also only an ounce is put in while gathering your wort which is where most of the IBUs come from. The rest of the hops are added with 10, 5, and 1 minute left which add significantly less IBU power than at first wort or at the first boil. Adding hops to secondary doesn't add any IBUs either.

So this beer is well within in the APA range of IBUs.

As far as blue moon drinkers, this will have a more hoppy taste that it, can't say anything about the fruity taste as I have not tasted it yet. I can say that the airlock smells great!!!

I got everything from my LHBS except for US-04. They were out so I got US-05.

How much difference will that make or should I wait until Tuesday to brew so my son can bring me some 04 from the LHBS up by him.

humann's got it right. There are a lot of Cascades in this recipe but the majority are extremely late in the boil or dryhopped. Late additions contribute hop aroma and character, not bitterness.

I've done this with 05 as well - should be fine. 05 is the classic american west coast, clean finish style yeast, and 04 is more english ale style with a bit more maltiness retained in the final product. Let us know how it turns out!
