Looks refreshing... What are you using to crush and what grains did you use (to pieholebrewingco's point)...

Yeah, looks great. Please share the recipe.

I would also be curious to not only see the recipe, but to hear your personal critique of the finished product.

base of sorghum and rice
classic german mash
oats and roasted millet for specialty grains
magnum
cascade
amarillo
pound of honey at flame out

I hit 35 ibus since I wanted to have a light but hoppy beer... I know I know to much for such a light beer but I wanted it so I did it.

It tastes great. Crisp but with a nice mouth feel and the grains real flavor is really pleasant. In my opinion sorghum with a good mash schedule and proper water balance tastes great. It has a light warm flavor with a hint of acidity, though I should mention that the acidity is NOT the same as the twang from syrups.

I got my mill from high gravity its a schmidling with hardened rollers option and the option for both rollers to be adjustable as well. It works well but if I had the money I would go with the monster mill mm3 2.0. Make sure to get hardened rollers. Sorghum and rice and other gf grains are MUCH harder then barley.

Did you malt the sorghum? Use any enzymes? How large of a batch was this, and how much did you use of the various ingredients? I'd be interested to see the full recipe as well...

beljica 06-25-2012 06:04 AM

I used an enzyme mix... I just whipped this up so the exact recipe idk... I wanted a really light beer so I hit an og of 1.045 and an fg of 1.018. Just go off that and use your efficiency to make your brew... I used maybe 6 pounds of grain???
The hops though..
.4 mag at 60
1 cascade 15
1 amarillo at flame out.
I'll pm you

Just for clarification, the sorghum and rice were unmalted?

All of the grains were unmalted?

Yup unmalted... I have access to commercial grade zymes. I cereal mash, add enzymes, hit my temps depending on style then sparge... so the only difference between my set up and a regular AG set up is that I use a burner under my tun. I use the grant from my nano as a homebrew tun. My grant is just a stainless steel 15 gal kettle from amazon it was dirt cheap.
