This is my 5th time of brewing this one. 10 gallons... 8 lbs Pils 8 lbs Marris Otter 1 lbs wheat 1 lbs C-120 My water correction for pH is to use citric acid.. Hops I like to use northern brewer 1.5oz. for bittering, or should I say... balance. At flame out, 4 oz cascade. My OG has been right around 1.045... This is just a nice little drinking ale... I will be using Kviek Voss. Sneezles61
I'm doing a similar recipe today but substituting the Pils for golden Promise and the c-120 for 1/2lb of Special B
11 gallons in the fermenters, 1.047 was my OG.. I used 2 oz Northern brewer hops pre boil, 6% AA, then post boil 3 oz German tettnang, 3.6% AA... One of the fermenter will get some dry hopping... cascades... Just playing around here. Sneezles61
So another update... I started the yeast yesterday... Pitched today at about 2... Its bubbling away! To me, I now haven't any worries about this brew... I would suspect I had enough yeast cake to fill 8 Whites lab "old" vials... I don't do a yeast calculator's... I'm not that... into it! Sneezles61
Done fermenting now... I'll push one of the fermenters into a keg, hit it with Bio-clear... put it in the keezer, tomorrow I can force carb. Sneezles61
That was quick
Ooh, I would enjoy that one. Yum.
Me plan for monday a heffeweisen. 3 days off so early session. Like 5 am.
I really don't think the Bio stuff changes much that I can tell.... A very green brew, yet, small in nature, makes it quick to turn around... Remember, I did 11 gallons to the keg... I'd be curious how different they become. Sneezles61
FG was 1.005... That puts this one just over 5% ABV... In the Keezer chilling and the gas is going through the liquid post... So I changed up my racking... Just to see if this would be better... I pushed the primary into a CO2 purged keg... I put bio-clear in yesterday morning... Now I put the keg into the keezer for cold crashing... See, I'm trying a different way to eliminate O2 from my process... This was an easier method. Dave, mon over on Thanks giving... Turkey loaf and cider and a few brews! Sneezles61
