Centennial pale ale (brew #34)

Brewed the first batch of beer in almost a year.  Here's the recipe:

Centennial pale ale:
  • OG: 1.054
  • 45 IBU
  • 5 gallons
Grains:
  • 9.94 lbs Maris Otter pale malt (Munton's)
  • 1.0 lb Crystal malt (80 L)
  • 0.11 lb Chocolate malt
Hops:
  • 0.50 oz Centennial hop pellets (9.5% aa) @ 60 min
  • 0.50 oz Centennial hop pellets @ 30 min
  • 1.0 oz Centennial hop pellets @ 10 min
  • 2.0 oz Centennial hop pellets @ 0 min
Yeast:
  • Wyeast 1272 American ale yeast II
I had lots of help from friends as you can see in the photo gallery.  Special thanks to Tony and Mark for helping with the entire brew.  And K for taking photos.  Everything went pretty smoothly (especially with so much help), but we filled the kettle before I remembered to install the hop stopper (siphon screen).  After draining all the wort and installing the screen, everything went fine.
