St Arnold's Grain Bills
A couple of weekends ago my fiance and I went to St. Arnold's in Houston, man it was fun. Anyway, while I was there I noticed the grain bills for some of their beers were posted on a wall....so I busted out my camera and snapped a couple of shots.
So, if anyone wants to clone some of their recipes here are the percentages. Their website says the IBU's type of hops and normally tells the number of kettle additions.
I'm not a big IPA kinda guy but I tried thiers and really liked it, that and the Octoberfest was awesome. Those two are deffinatly on the lineup.
oh cool, just realized that this is ALL of their beers.....except the "Divine Reserve"
I wonder where they post their hop schedules?
EDIT: Nevermind, I just saw the paragraph at the bottom. Their IPA is not bad at all.
Just had their Oktoberfest not to long ago, very good beer. I just wish I knew what yeast they used. What are you planing on using?
Holy hell, that's awesome. Dude, I've been there several times, I love St. Arnolds, but never saw this...where was this posted at?
P.S. Is it possible to use this information to make something close using extract and steeped specialty grains? (still a newbie waiting to get his equipment and brew his first batch even)
I'm not sure what exact yeast they use for the Ofest but i know it's their "proprietary" ale yeast....probubly just something REALLY clean
It was posted on the door next to the grain mill and the MLT.
Sure speedcheese you can convert the recipes. Which one are you lookin at? I'll tell you the calc's....don't have'em right now
2-row - 8.3 lbs
munich - 2.1 lbs
caramunich - .7 lbs
special b - .3 lbs
chocolate - .05 lbs
Are those calculations right? They seem like a lot to me, though I haven't really brewed much so I don't really have a whole lot to base that on. If my calculations are right, then would I just be using like 8.3 lbs of a pale ale or dark ale extract and steeping the rest of the grains?
Please correct me if I'm wrong on this. I just wanted to give it a try at understanding this. Again, great find Hornet.
Ha thats awesome you picked the brown... I converted it today!
Here's what I got
Type: All grain Size: 5 gallons
Color: 33 HCU (~16 SRM)
Bitterness: 21 IBU
OG: 1.055 FG: 1.011
Alcohol: 5.6% v/v (4.4% w/w)
Grain: 8 lb. American 2-row
2 lb. American Munich
.5 lb. Belgian CaraMunich
5 oz. Belgian Special B
1 oz. American chocolate
Mash: 70% efficiency
Boil: minutes SG 1.039 7 gallons
Hops: .5 oz. Kent Goldings (5% AA, 60 min.)
.5 oz. Fuggles (4.75% AA, 30 min.)
.5 oz. Kent Goldings (5% AA, 15 min.)
*These aren't the same hops they use bc I'm not exactly sure what they use plus I've got a pound of each...Also, I think the timings need to be redone...like only 60 and 30min hops since it's a brown...just as long as it's around 20-25IBU's
First off, I used this to convert/write the recipe http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator
Next, 1 barrel is 31 gallons (or is it 33?) so those recipes are for like 1025 gallons!
Ok and lastly...for extract just steep all of the specialty grains (does munich have to be mashed or can it be steeped? Not sure) and convert the 2row to extra light DME
The equation is (pounds of 2row)X .6875=(pounds of DME)
Hope that helps
Winter Stout with no roasted.. interesting.
So are you a big fan of the brown then? I love it. I think Spring Bock is my favorite though. Christmas Ale is up there too. I have a 6 of Divine Reserve 5 (russian imperial stout) and Oktoberfest in the fridge, which is starting to grow on me. Cheers. :mug:
