I brewed a small 3.5 gallon batch yesterday with leftover ingredients that I had laying around. I wanted everyone’s opinion as to how they think it will taste
(1) 8 oz of British Crystal (50-60L)
(2) 4 oz of American Crystal (120)
Steeped for 20 minutes in 1 gallon of water and then sparged with an additional 1/2 gallon of water at 150 degrees.
(1) 2 lbs marris otter lme
(2) 8 oz of light due
(3) 10 oz of cane sugar
(1) 1 oz of cluster @ 60 min
(2) .25 oz of EKG @ 30 min
(3) .25 oz of EKG @ 15 min + 3/4 tsp irish moss
(4) .25 oz of EKG @ flameout
I did a full boil and started with 4.5 gallons of water. Transferred to a carboy and it looked like I had 3.5 gallons of wort. Original gravity between 1.041 and 1.047 (hydrometer not calibrated)
I used white labs british ale yeast that I had cleaned from a previous batch. Checked beer this morning and fermentation has started – nice krausen present.
