Having brewed 5 extract kits, I've decided it's time to branch out to designing my own recipes. I've been going nuts with the free trial of Beersmith and I think this recipe is going to be my first effort.
4 lbs Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 50.00 %
3 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 37.50 %
8.0 oz Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain 6.25 %
8.0 oz Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 6.25 %
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 33.3 IBU
1.00 oz Progress [6.25 %] (10 min) Hops 5.8 IBU
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04) Yeast-Ale
I'm going to try the stovetop partial mash promulgated by DeathBrewer. Then I suppose I'll primary for a week and secondary for another (maybe two).
Since I am very new at this, I thought I would seek comments on the recipe before I order my supplies.
I have several other recipes I plan to order at the same time to save on shipping - is it appropriate to post them here for feedback as well?
