Sunday I brewed my first Batch, an all-grain Wee heavy.
I started looking into the subject since the beginning of the year and decided that Wee heavy would be a good Challenge.
6.6lb Munich malt type 2
6.6lb Pale Ale
2.2lb Crystal malt
2.2lb Vienna Malt
1lb Biscuit Malt
0.2lb special B Malt
for a 5.3gallon Batch.
Efficiency wasn’t so great, got stuck at 1080 (estimated was 1112) and bumped it to 1102 with 1lb molasses.
pitched the whole thing at 77F with 2 packets of nottinhgam ale dry yeast.
it is now sitting in a 10gal bucket with a near the bottom and an airlock bubbling every 2min or so.
One caveat though: I’m in Brasil, in a place where temperature ranges from 65F(at night) and 95F. I placed my bucket in a cellar where average temp is around 77F.
And i have no control over temperature.
Isee people here saying I should not rack to secondary, taking 4 weeks in primary and such… but at my temperature range, won’t there be autolysis?
Hope you can help me!
