Hey everyone. I’m brewing a clone of Legend Brewing Company’s Utebier. It’s based on Norwegian style that is meant to be a beer that you enjoy outside on the first warm day of springtime. I can’t decide what water profile to use from Beersmith and would really value some input.
Here’s the recipe:
(5 gallons/19 L, all-grain)
OG = 1.056 FG = 1.014
IBU = 24 SRM = 8 ABV = 5.5%
7.5 lbs (3.40 kg) 2-row pale malt
2.5 lbs (1.13 kg) 2-row pale ale malt
1.5 lbs. (0.68 kg) honey malt
0.25 lb. (0.11 kg) flaked wheat
2 AAU Cascade hops (30 min.) (0.25 oz./7 g at 8% alpha acids)
10 AAU Cascade hops (15 min.) (1.25 oz./35 g at 8% alpha acids)
25 AAU Amarillo® hops (0 min.) (2.5 oz./70 g at 10% alpha acids)
6 AAU Cascade hops (0 min.) (0.75 oz./21 g at 8% alpha acids)
8 AAU Apollo hops (0 min.) (0.5 oz./14 g at 16% alpha acids)
Wyeast 1056 (American Ale) orWhite Labs WLP001 (California Ale) or Safale US-05 yeast
Mash at 154 and boil for 60 minutes.
Recipe also recommends a sulfate to chloride ratio of 1.5 to 1. Hoppy Pale Ale and Sweet Pale Ale are the two profiles I’m considering but I really don’t know if those are realistic profiles.
