I'm drinking this right now!!! - YES Hair of the dog!!!

I'm serving this on Saturday at local festival and I convinced myself to do another carbonation check. Right before morning coffee.

It super clean, nice gold color, good head formation. Very balanced too, neither malt or hops are prominent. Honey is barely detectable.

Damned Good Summer Quaffer!

Sounds like a 1970s rock band!! :rockin:

I agree 100%. Nugget has good bittering capability, smells good and grows like crazy here in Iowa.

You add the honey when lautering into the brew kettle or when its about to come to a boil.

This would be good with all cascades. It would have a nice citrusy flavor but not to bitter or hoppy. It would have more hop nose than flavor though. Which I think is good for this style.

I brewed this 3/12/2010. It came up at 1.050 OG...much higher than expected.
I did use Nugget hops in combination with Cascade.I am hoping that this doesn't finish too sweet! Or too alcohol HOT !

I tweaked the recipe to 1.049 and there is no IBU change in promash .

At:
1.040-1.049 : 22.8 IBUs
1.051 ~ 22.6 IBUs
1.053 ~ 22.4 IBUs
1.056 ~ 22.1 IBUs
1.058 ~ 21.9 IBUs
1.060 ~ 21.7 IBUs
1.062 ~ 21.4 IBUs
1.065 ~ 21.2 IBUs
1.067 ~ 21.0 IBUs
_______________
1.103 ~ 18 IBUs

From a gut feel I don't believe the values for IBU as it goes towards 1.100

I don't think there is a need to worry here. Let it ferment completely and you'll be good to go!

First taste---it seems a little bit heavy. Great overall flavor but maybe too much, as noted i came up a bit too high on the OG, will back off next time to bring it in line with your numbers.

Still very nice

Let me know how it fairs. - I really liked this as simple summer beer. Its easy to make, cheap and BMC-folk will like it quite a bit. That said it still has a good flavor.
