Yeah, I am going to do this again, and pitch right onto the yeast cake. The last time, I had some issues with equipment (my electric HLT died right after mash in), so not sure how that beer will turn out.

I am going to brew with it either way, but am wondering how big a deal this is? I haven't used carapils before so I don't really know its effects.
It's going to be a chewy beer, that's a lot of carapils gonna have a lot of dextrins in that beer.

That's what I thought would happen. Is there any way to mitigate the problem?

I've never used that much cara-pils, but I think it will turn out good. It is typically used for head retention, and is light in color. Beersmith says you can use up to 20% in a batch, so I wouldn't sweat it too much. You may want to collect a little more water in the boil kettle to offset the gravity boost from an extra 1.5# of malt. That puts you at ~12% of cara-pils in the batch, and will boost the gravity about .006. Beersmith claims 20% is the max in the batch for cara-pils, FWIW.

This is on my to-do list. I just made an IPA that was very similar, but different. I might go ahead and start pulling yeast from the bottle and build up a starter for the beer when I brew it.

Now to start drinking and giving away the IPA that I just made! I wish someone would post a Hopslam! recipe now!

+1+1+1+1 On The HopSlam!!!!

I messed up my first one due to an equipment failure. Brewed a really hoppy NA brew....

So I did this again over the weekend with the yeast cake. This looked amazing and tasted so good already. OG 1.060.

Just tasted my six week old Two Hearted. Wow, best beer I've brewed so far.

BTW: Anyone else notice how close this recipe is to Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale (aside from the hop schedule)? 20L instead of 10L along with Carapils added and a couple less pounds of base malt.

I just made this brew as my first all grain. It seems that it worked out well. I pulled a 1063 but was about 3/4 gallons short at the end of the boil. Oh well, it should be a great beer. No turning back now that I brewed all grain. I did notice the pale recipe is very close. I think that may be my next pale recipe.

Made this and it's fantastic... I just acquired a bottle of Two-Hearted this weekend, and will try to do a side-by-side test tonight. Adjusted for my 68.4% efficiency:

11 lbs. American 2-row
2 lbs. American Vienna
0.5 lbs. Belgian Cara-Pils
0.5 lbs. Crystal Malt 20°L
1 oz. Centennial (Whole, 10.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
1 oz. Centennial (Whole, 10.00 %AA) boiled 15 min.
1 oz. Centennial (Whole, 10.00 %AA) boiled 5 min.
1 oz. Centennial (Whole, 10.00 %AA) boiled 1 min.
1 oz. Centennial (Whole, 10.00 %AA) used as dry hop.
1 pkg. Danstar Nottingham

Will hopefully post pics and reviews tomorrow!
