Default GF Citra Amarillo Pale Ale

Building on what I have been learning here, this is my latest recipe in the fermentor. The below recipe calls for all the Sorghum in at 60 minutes, this is actually split evenly with half going in at the beginning and half at flame out.

The candi sugar was made at home using DAP and the method linked below. You can pick up pure DAP from More Beer, a pound of it is cheap and will last a long time.

Very nice. I will be looking to do a beer with a hint of orange later this summer, and I think this recipe would work great for that.

In fact, I am going to brew again next week, and I am going to use this recipe as my inspiration....tweaked slightly.

Citra Hopped Up Ale
ABV:5.2%
IBU: 75
SRM: 13 (I think it will be higher)
Boil time: 60 minutes

4.6lbs Sorghum (LHBS bought in bulk and packaged in 2.3lb jars....I'll throw in one at 30 minutes and one at 10)
1lb Candi syrup, dark @ 60
1lb Brown rice syrup @ 60
1lb Rice syrup solids @60

1oz warrior @ 60 minutes (never used these before, excited to though)
0.25oz Amarillo @30 minutes
0.25oz Citra @ 30 minutes
0.25oz Amarillo @ 15 minutes
0.25oz Citra @ 15 minutes
4oz Maltrodextrin @ 15 minutes

I see a lot of people using yeast nutrient. Do you think this is necessary or a "just in case"?

Yeast nutrient is absolutely unnecessary in my experience. I've never used it in any of my beers, and this includes beers that have no sorghum at all, just rice syrup and other sugars. I usually figure that, because I'm always adding steeping grains or sweet potatoes or herbs or something, somehow or another I'm getting the yeast everything it needs. It might help fermentation go faster, but I've never had trouble reaching target FG...if anything, I tend to come out lower FG than expected! My first beer was pretty high gravity, for a 3 gallon batch I did 3 lbs of brown rice syrup and 3 lbs of dark candi sugar (not syrup) and 1.5 lbs of honey, as well as 1 lb of toasted steeping grains. No yeast nutrient, no problem! Bottled it after three weeks, gave it a month in the bottles to condition, and it was fine.

I haven't tried the sweet potatoes yet, but I might.

I have some yeast nutrient, but I think as long as I am sticking with primarily sorghum based brews I'll probably just save it.

I have always looked at it as cheap insurance.

Considering the fact that after we mix some sugar water up it is up to the yeast to carry us through to the finish line. I want them to be eating the best food possible. (way over simplification, but the Eye of the Tiger song just popped in my head)

Probably right though, over engineered..

Will be posting pictures in several more weeks of the brew, I am very happy with the fermenting amber color from the syrup.

Brewed my take on this yesterday. It smelled great, and since I had some yeast nutrient anyway I through some in.

Fermentation started quickly and with much more gusto than my previous GF batches.

Sorry for the external link, but I'm on my phone:

WOW...Impressive set up!

Also, I just realized I have been hijacking your thread. Sorry about that, but thanks for the great recipe!
