I will begin drinking. Thanks a lot. Good stuff on my first beer in over four years. Going to try the ag recipe above next.

quick update. i brewed a variation of this 2.5 weeks ago and bottled last night. gravity samples were great and aroma is amazing. recipe i used: http://hopville.com/recipe/1436437/a...le-recipes/wpa

i dry hopped with citra instead of simcoe and use kolsch yeast. can't wait until they are carbed up.

This beer only gets better and clearer as time goes by. Brewing this again in the coming days. This time I will not be too anxious to drink. I will try the dental floss tied hop bag in the keg this time. Found that keg co2 level was best around 8-9 psi.

Anyone know if dry hopping harms a beer if done for an extended time?

EDIT DUE TO ENGLISH TEACHER IN ME.

If you do it in the keg, let it sit for 4-5 days at room temp. Then, toss it in your keezer or kegerator and it will be just fine.

Going to brew up 10 gals of this over the weekend and try a single decoction at 122 F for 35 minutes with a raise to 154 F for 45 minutes. Got the starters of 1056 going tonight.

I'm also going to try this with all Simcoe. The original is outstanding, but got a good deal on a pound of Simcoe. After playing around on BeerSmith last night, it's sitting at 26.5 ibus.

VERY interested to hear if the decoc. helps with the breadiness. Did you make the PM recipe?

The two times I've made this, it was the extract with steeping grains recipe. This first time had the sweetness that's been described, the second, I screwed up and it ended up as a drinkable hop water.

I went all grain and all Simcoe. I kept the hop schedule. Also, used california ale from white labs. Thinking about dry hopping with Amarillo pellets. Any idea as to how much?

I dry hopped for 7 days with 1.5 oz of Amarillo. Spot on. I also used pellets.
