Love some feedback - this is my first recipe. Used a calculator on brewers friend and it seems to check out, but I’d love some thoughts from the crowd. Got about 14 extracts under my belt and a few partials at this point and I’m ready to take the plunge.
This will be a hoppy pale ale SMASH partial mash with marris otter and citra hops. For the record, I like hoppy flavor and aroma, not a huge fan of bitter. That said, I want to make sure the sweetness of the malt is balanced.
7 lb marris otter grain steeped 1 hr @ 152.
3.15 lb marris otter extract
5 gal batch and 3 gallon boil
Hop schedule :
.5 60 min
.5 30 min
.5 15 min
.5 10 min
.5 5 min
.5 dry hop last 7 days of fermentation
According to the calculations it will give me an og of 1061 and fg of 1014 w/ an abv of 6.15%
I’m not sure about the yeast and I’d love suggestions. I’m thinking wyeSt London iii or danstar Windsor.
What does everyone think?
