Gotta love the forum and my fellow homebrewers!
Just went on HopsDirect and bought a pound each of Cascade, Czech Saaz and Tettnanger leaf hops.
You are aware that the Czech Saaz are from last year? Are the Tett US Tett (2011) or German Tett (2010)? The origin will have a big influence.
The European hops are on line after the New Year. Customs and all that.
Baby boy, Zane.
I did a 3 qt. starter from 2 smack packs.
I think throwing in CaraPils indiscriminately "for body" gets a bad rap, especially when many inexperienced brewers end up with under-attenuated beers to begin with. But it has its place like any other malt.
^ Narvin nailed it!
"then condition for a week and straight to keg for secondary."
I thought conditioning occured in the keg/bottle after primary and secondary fermentation?
"What was the style of beer you were brewing?"
Well, the recipe came from a friend that called it a Creemore Clone. I've added some dextrine malt and some Willamette FWH, so needless to say, I've strayed outside the bounds of a Premium American Lager. So, at OG 1.060 and ~29 IBU, I think I'll call it an EXTRA Premium American Lager.
