11.11.11 brew

So if my hops arrive tomorrow, I was thinking of doing a 11.11.11 brew.

11lbs of 2 row
11oz of a crystal

Try to hit 11 srm

And a 66 minute boil with hop additions every 11 minutes.

what are you thoughts?

I guess I could really over do it and try to hit 111 ibu as well. But doubt I will go that far.

If I went this way, I think I would do 11 hop additions every six minutes.

Original Gravity at 1.111?

Sounds like a fun brew!

not sure how I could get that with 11 lbs of 2 row and 11 oz a crystal. I guess I could try a 111 minute boil.

Nice! Anyone nabbed a bottle of Vertical Epic 11.11.11? They released it on the 7th!

here is what I have so far.

which is 11 lbs of two row, the special b plus the c80 weights equals 11ozes. which gives 11.1 srm.

and with 6 hop additions every 11 minutes. which I could do, or maybe 11 additions every 6 minutes. which I could force to hit 111 ibu. But still don’t think I would want that with this grain bill.

Looks OK, kind of a high IBU for the OG for my tastes but you might like that.

I may drop it down to 0.75 at the 66 mark, which would get me to 57.6IBU . The 111 ibu would be way to much, so I am going to drop that idea.

Mashing. Everything is running smooth, but I accidentally broke a wl-01 slurry that I had in my fridge. (not for today, but for the future. Today is wl-840)

And here I thought I was clever bottling a cream ale today and calling it “Veteran’s Ale”.
Yours sounds like an interesting recipe!

I’m doing a big “double weizenbock” style tonight. The first runnings is coming off like molasses, it should be around 1.090 so I guess thats expected. I’ll add some sugar to get closer to 1.111 OG. I have a yeast cake from a dunkelweizen I just kegged today. Who know if this will work but it will be interesting.

Edited to add: Got to 1.111, thats 26.1Brix. Now I’m wondering if the WLP300 will even survive that kind of wort.
