Innis and Gunn Original
So I hybridized the recipes I found from HBT, Northernbrewer, Beersmith and Innis and Gunn's website.
EOG: 1.072 It is believed that IG is 1.068.
ABV 7.1 which is a half a percent higher than IG at 6.6.
AG 5.50 batch size:
BIAB 16gallon Kettle:
1 oz Roasted Barley
12 lbs Golden Promise
2 lbs Crystal 60L
1 lb Flaked Wheat
Mash at 152 degrees for 75 minutes. I will probably going to shoot for 150 because IG is between Light and Medium body.
Sparge or Mash out for 10 minutes at 168.
Boil Time 60m
Add 7g of Gypsum
Add 7g of Burton Water Salts
55m .5oz of Aurora AKA Super Styrian
20m .5oz of Aurora
3 vials of Eddinburgh Ale Yeast WL WLP028 without a starter or
2 vials with a 1.5 Liter starter
Ferment at 67 for 10-14 days
Secondary over 2.5 oz of American Medium Toast (The IG site says Bourbon barrels so soak the chips in bourbon during the primary fermentation but you could use whatever spirit suits you).
Secondary 30 days @ 67 degrees
(If you go by IG site then this could be extended to 77 days but for the last Couple weeks drop the temp to 65 degrees.)
Bottle or keg and condition at 65 for 30 days.
So why is mine a touch off from the original…because I like round numbers. So if it says 15oz of x grain I tend to round up. Same with hops .9oz of hops becomes 1 oz. Heck if it says .5oz of hops then that may become 1oz as well the extra may just become a flameout edition. The smallest amount I can buy at my LHBS is an oz of something and I don't like having stuff laying around.
I am brewing this next weekend 11/30/13. I will let you know how it goes and how close I get.
