I've got a camping trip coming up in November and I'm tasked with bringing some home-brew with me to the outing. I've got a case of my Copper Ale along with 6-12 ambers and lights brewed over the past few months, but I'm going to brew up an extract brew to go along with it. I'm hitting the wall on my timing if I expect to get it ready for the mid-November trip.
Here's my recipe:
1 lb of Amber Dry Extract
6.6 lbs of Amber Liquid Extract
1 lb of Crystal/Caramel Malt Grain for steeping pre-boil
3 oz of Cascade Hops (60 mins/15 mins/5 mins)
I planned on using the Jovaru Lithuanian Yeast by Omega. It will impart some citrusy along with lemon pith and pepper flavors.
Has anyone any experience with this farmhouse yeast? And any comments on the recipe?
Just FYI, I added the DME to boost the OG and raise the ABV a little bit. This seemed more economical versus more LME. I plan on fermenting in the 75-80F range using just the primary fermenter.
Thanks in advance!
