should be good, this is actually the first SMaSH i've seen with extract. i may have to try a partial mash SMaSH soon. i was also thinking of doing an extract SMaSH plus an all-grain SMaSH with the same base malt so i can see what this "mythological" extract twang is all about.
Well two days ago, I decided to make this one again. This time I went with the spalt hops.
Heres what went into the pot....
6 lbs pilsner LME
1.5 OZ spalt 60 mins
.25 oz spalt 15 mins
Irish moss at 15 mins
yeast nutrient at 10 mins
Safale US05 rehydrated in warm water for 60 minutes
Went into the fermentation bucket and pitched yeast at 86F ( a bit warm) and had a gravity reading of 1.040, but that was with quite a bit over 5 gallons, probably 5.25.
First bubbles with the rehydrated yeast within 15 minutes.
Fermenting at about a constant 68 in the spare bathroom.
