I'm going to do my second attempt at a Ninkasi Total Domination style beer. My first one tasted great, but was a higher FG than I wanted, and I didn't have Amarillo hops so I subbed Citra. A good beer but not very Ninkasi-like. Here's what I'm going to try this time:
11.25 lbs. 2-row
1.5 lbs. light Munich (or split into .75 Vienna, .75 Munich maybe)
.5 Simcoe 45 minutes
1.0 Simcoe 30 minutes (trying simcoe instead of Summit this time)
.5 Simcoe 20 minutes
2.0 Amarillo, 2.0 Cascade, and .5 Simcoe spread evenly between 10 minutes and 0 minutes
Dry hop with 1-2 oz. Amarillo and Cascade
Trying WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast. I used the London ESB yeast per what I've heard on the web last time, and I just don't see how that will attenuate enough to hit the target FG. With this yeast I should hit about 1.014 with a starting gravity of 1.069 or so.
Any thoughts, changes, critiques are welcome! Cheers.
