I just threw out about  a lb. of centennial that went south on me. So much for saving money by buying in bulk.

I'm sure it has to be figured in on a big system, but they have programs to get them close, and if it's off then adjust it on the next batch. On 5-10 gal. It probably won't make much difference what grain you use.

I have reused a smoked yeast again and not noticed any off flavors. Just make sure you pour off any excessive beer off top before transfer.

I like trying to clone a beer, if for nothing else to say I can make one as good as commercial beers. I have done big sky brewings moose drool and side by side with the commercial one our brew club couldn't tell the difference. And I know I'll catch flack for this one, but I cloned Schlitz and it came awe fully close.

Post that Schlitz recipe. Even Schlitz doesn't know the real original recipe so you really can't miss on that one!
Here's what I got,
6 lb 6 row
4 lb 2 row
1 lb flaked maize
1/2 oz magnum, 1/4 oz cluster, 1/2 oz fuggle all at 15 minutes
90 minute mash
90 minute boil
2035 yeast
Mash at 148
Ferment at 50-55
You could probably cut back on the base grains to get the abv a little lower, mine came in at 6.5%
I did a step mash, 122  for 30 minutes and 1hour at 148

For us rednecks who don't get out much, what's a vertical tasting?
That's when you taste different years of the same beer side by side.

Bigchicken, I have a raisin oatmeal cookie amber recipe that doesn't use raisins and you would swear that it does. It came from bugeater in Omaha. I think he is on thebrewingnetwork forum. But if you want the recipe I can give it. This is one awesome beer.
