Taste Notes

Mash at 66 C or 151 F. This is Dr Smurto's favourite version. This beer is one of the most widely home-brewed beers in Australia, extremely popular to a wide range of palates and a robust recipe meaning that it can be varied in many ways with little risk. Source: Mark Smith

This was my 5th all grain batch and everyone likes it a lot! The dark beer and the lager drinkers both. I will definitely be brewing this one again and again!

My first biab and i got a great resault. Very nice beer.

Citra substitute works great

by jmc1beersmith

I couldn't get Amarillo so I dry hopped with Citra with fantastic results. Great Hop aroma and flavor without too much bitter.

excellent

by jrwren

Used centennial cuz they were so cheap and I'm cheap. Used California Ale Yeast and turned out great.

A nice "go to" beer. A dark golden in color. Light hop nose.Slight bitter up front ,but mellows quickly.Dry finish. Overall really nice brew. Will surely make another batch of this.Sure to please many palates.

by ripvdub

Love this recipe. Boiled with Amarillo, dry hoppped with Citra, and Wyeast apa yeast. Cant wait to make it again.

A New Favorite, by the recipe and with variations

by BlackForestBrewer

First batch had to be with S-04 and Aurora Hops (Super Styrian), since my homebrew supplier was out of US-05 and Amarillo, and turned out great. I used to brew a tiny bit in Oklahoma, but this was my first brew (Nov 2013) since moving to Germany in 2008. Since then have made the exact recipe and I will be making variations on this grain bill again.

Great recipe

by otterbreath

My second AG brew - and best so far. The fisrt was pretty bad to be honest but this is a decent drink. Not so great for the first month or so but now a couple of months in it is bar far the best I have brewed beating all my extract efforts.

Excellent

by moad

Great beer, I always have a keg of this on the go

Easily varied is spot on.

by jonledrew

I just put this in my kegerator. Great beer. Dry and clean with S-04. Swapped in Centennial for bittering, cascade for aroma as there were no Amarillo to be found locally. Dry hopped with a little cascade as well. Will be making another variation of this again for the summer.

Golden delicious
