Default SMaSH APA

I wasn't supposed to brew this week, but i just can't help it

Cutting the hops down a bit on my trademark SMaSH...last batch was a bit too bitter and noticeably different than the original (whole hops, better efficiency.)

If it works out like i hope, it will then go in the recipe database:

This will be a stove-top all-grain. Hops will go into the first runnings. Boil will be about 5 gallons, and topped off with bottled water. mash out is done with heat and stirring.

I'll be taking pictures, documenting and making another how-to thread for doing all-grain in the kitchen with minimal equipment.

Be back from work in a few hours to start!

Isn't that a lot of Vienna malt?

It's a SMaSH recipe, meaning Single Malt and Single Hop.

It doesn't really seem like "lot" of vienna, but quite reasonable. Then again, I love me some märzen

I just haven't seen that much in a recipe. The little I have used seemed to add flavor and that was at only 20% or so.

I understand the SMaSH thing but I understood it to be a money saving measure.

Nope, more of a process to learn a malt flavor or what a specific hop taste like if you've never used it before. Also a great way to work on process.

Sounds yummy. I love Vienna and Northern Brewer together. I'm feeling German right now.

i changed the recipe a bit. upon reading the gravity pre-boil (about 5.75 gallons) i got 14 brix. This was about 85% efficiency (1.055), so i changed the bittering hops to 0.75 ounces.

i boiled down to 5 gallons before adding hops and my final volume was 4 gallons. i took another reading and it was at 14 brix (1.063) adjusted for top off water at 5.5 gallons, this came to 70% efficiency, making it 1.046. i don't know where my reading was off (i think it was the 2nd reading) but no matter what it's still to style and it tastes great.

*sigh* i'll have to do this test a few more batches to figure out why my reading was off.



anyway, it was a great session otherwise. i got lots of pictures.
