Default Can you Brew It recipe for Firestone Walker - Walker's Reserve

All recipes are (unless otherwise specified): 6 gallons post-boil, 70% efficiency, Morey for color, 15% evaporation, 7.27 gallons preboil, Rager IBU, and most hops are in grams not ounces. Most, if not all recipes are primary only (no secondary).

If you brew this, please reply with your results for discussion.

90 minute boil

OG 1061
33 SRM
17.8 IBU

4.61kg British Pale Ale malt
650g Crystal 75
320g chocolate malt
320g flaked oats
320g wheat malt
160g Crystal 120
100g Carafe Special III

18g EKG 5%AA @ 90min
12g EKG @ 30min
39g Cascade 7%AA @ 0min
With a one hour hot whirlpool. Or...

change the cascade to 30min and change the 30min EKG to 45min if you do not use a whirlpool.

WLP002 (Jamil said that WLP007 would work fine as well.)

Step Mash instructions:
145F for 15min
156F for 45min
Mash out at 168 for 10min

Adjust water with gypsum and CaCl to 100ppm

Pitch at 17C, let rise to 19C in 24-48 hour. Let rise to 21C over course of further fermentation.

1-2 oz medium toast american oak cubes for each 5 gallon

Discussion Notes:
JP mashed at 154F. Jamil said this is an acceptable alternative to the step mash listed above. JP added for 1oz oak chips immediately and then removed after 7-8 days. JP said that chips work better for fermentation and cubes are better for aging. JP did not use gypsum, but Jamil and JP both agreed that it would be helpful to add it.

Popping this into beersmith yielded an OG of 1.071 with 70% efficiency. Think Jamil made a mistake?

I don't think so. ProMash gave me OG of 1.073, but then I realized something I missed at first:

If I bump the batch up to 6 gallons, that 1.073 falls to a dead on 1.061.


edit: by the way, who said you guys could have my private reserve beer?

Brew date is set for Sunday. I've been waiting to do this beer for a long time.

I was finally able to get my hands on this, and I must say that it is by far my favorite porter on the market right now. I'll have to give this a shot, but later in the year.

As for the water adjustment, what do you think they mean by adjusting Gypsum and CaCL to 100ppm? What ion? What CL:SO4 ratio?

Brewed this on Sunday. I used RO water and built the water profile up:

Total water (ppm):
Ca: 107
Mg: 16
Na: 85
Cl: 122
SO4: 159
Cl to SO4 Ratio: 0.76

Hit my numbers for the first time in forever. I'll post later for a tasting, and later again when it's packaged and carbed.

17.8 IBU? Plug the 'non-whirlpool' numbers in and you should get an IBU level at least twice 17.8. I'm not sure if the two methods yield the same bitterness level but if they do, 17.8 IBU isn't even close. What gives?
