I am just looking for a bit of body from the C40. I thought the Corn % is pretty high so I thought a bit won’t hurt. The KY Common was such a good beer which included the C40 I thought this would be as well. The tinge of gold color can’t hurt either. We’ll see.


*Disclaimer*: Any comment I add is simply the way I brew beer. There are certainly other ways that can be equally effective which other brewers may contribute. This is what I’ve found that works for me using my equipment and processes so I offer this for your consideration. YMMV

Sounds like good reasons to me.  Thanks for the reply.  Good luck with it.

There were a few harvest years maybe 8-10 years ago where the quality on Amarillo was hot or miss from year to year. That was around the time where a whole bunch of new hops were coming out every year, and I ended up moving away from Amarillo to other varieties. I tried Amarillo cryo last year, and I've been going back for more ever since. It is such a great hop in any hoppy style (and non-hoppy ones if used judiciously).

i do remember that, amarillo was once cutting edge, then suddenly there were a dozen new ones at the brewstore.
i intended to do a test cryobrew, but my OHBS started raising their prices on everything, and i decided to just try to cut back a bit in an upcoming pliny clone attempt. ie. 1oz of simcoe is $2.50, 1oz of cryo simcoe was $5.50. idk, anyway gotta do a prominent amarillo brew sometime soon, i believe i heard amarillo+citra is one of the best

I add a little bit of Honey Malt with mine. It goes well with the corn.

Simcoe + Amarillo + Citra was my go-to back in the day, and I've been using the same combo with Cryo hops lately.

I should have looked at the weather forecast before deciding to brew yesterday. It was 94°! Not good to be standing around 13 gallons of boiling wort. To top it off, I had a boilover and lost about a gallon of wort, plus had a sticky mess to cleanup. Had to added water to the fermenters. Fortunately, I had over shot my OG, so all was good. Hadn’t brewed in a while as my previous brew I discovered my 10 year old Coleman Extreme cooler mashtun had sprung a leak. So I replaced it, and the 10 year old bazooka screen that was a twisted mess from getting whacked by the brew paddle too many times. Also bought a longer threaded nipple, which I should have purchased years ago.

Czech pilsner

OG 1.054, 10 gallons

18 lbs Weyermann Bohemian pilsner malt
1 lb Weyermann melanoidin
1 lb Weyermann carafoam

Mash-in at 158° for 90 min, a little warmer than I wanted. I blame the heat. Batch sparge.

5 oz Saaz FWH
3 oz Cluster 90 min
3 oz Saaz 10 min
2 oz Saaz knockout

Diamond lager yeast. Freezer set at 48-53°.

Brewed a perry with Walmart Great Value Pear Juice and S23 yeast.

Is “brewed” the right word for this? I poured juice into a jar and pitched yeast.

hopefully a pliny inspired WCIPA, pliny clone but 1% lower ABV and OG/BU equivalent reduction
