2024-05 Have made this a few times. I find that my efficiency was too good so it was coming out near 7% so I cut 1 lb of 2 row to get it nearer to 6.

2022ish Made this from a kit the first time. All grain was amazing. Second time was from extract kit I ordered by accident. The extract version came out significantly more malty and dark, but I hadn't done an extract batch since the first time I brewed (ever).
This time I didn't have Crystal 40, but I did have Fawcett Crystal I (45ºL, medium crystal at NB) and my Centennial was 8.7 not 11.1 AA, adding some more at bittering to get to about 45 IBU Rager.

As a side note, I find that centennial clogs up poppets and racking arms more than any other hop once hydrated. I recommend a filter of some sort and a larger one at that.
