Default Central Veeyay Brewdown Ought-Nine [#1]

In the immortal words of Sir Ice Cube, once again, it's on!

Next Saturday, February 7th, we're holding the first CVBD of 2009. It will again be at Flyin' Lion's house in Chester, Virginia. PM him for directions if you want to attend. No set start time, but I'm going to try to be there before 10am. There's no requirement that you brew the official recipe/style, but it's encouraged (for education purposes, to be able to see the same recipe side by side from different brewers). What we've come up with is a British Mild Ale---the recipe is as follows (comments/criticism welcome!) I've listed the Thames Valley strain because AHS seems to be taking their sweet f*cking time pulling my order. I'd like to use the Yorkshire VSS strain that I ordered, but it's not going to be here in time to make a good starter. The Thames is pretty awesome...but you could really use any British strain like that. WLP002 and Wyeast 1968 are the ones BCS suggests. S04 could also work, but with such a delicate style like this, I'd suggest going with a liquid strain.

I think the recipe looks fantastic! I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on the Yorkshire strain when you get a chance to brew with it; I just ordered some from Midwest and I'll be doing a comparison to my most recent mild that fermented with 1028.

Given the low OG, you could conceivably just do a direct pitch of the Yorkshire. Hell, even half a day on the stirplate will do it!

Yeah, I know, but A) I don't know how long AHS has been holding those packs, so who knows what the viability is, and B) I placed the order on Wednesday, and they still haven't shipped it. This is becoming more and more commonplace at AHS---they take fukkin forever to send the order. I've emailed them and asked them if there was any way they could get it on the truck before the weekend, but haven't gotten a response, so I'm going to assume it'll be Monday before it gets shipped. 5 damn days! And if that's the case, I don't even know if it will arrive by Saturday! I think I'm going to have to switch to NB for good if this crap keeps up. I like Forrest, he's a good guy with good intentions, and I'm not badmouthing them, but when there's a viable alternative that typically takes less than 12 hours to pull your order, for only a dollar more for shipping, well...the choice is becoming more and more obvious.

Yeah, I'm pickin' up what you're throwin' down.

Truthfully, I've not ordered from AHS since before Christmas; I've been pretty well stocked with all my grain, hops, etc. That said, if you haven't already, give Brewmaster's Warehouse a shot at some point.

I've only ordered from him once just when he opened shop for some odds and ends and couldn't be more satisfied; $6.95 flat rate for FedEx shipping.

I've not seen Forrest in quite some time on here, whatever that means.

Anyhow, I'm pitching the wife on the roadtrip today; I'll keep you posted if we can make it down! If we can make it, I have a pound of Goldings. Might need to brew another batch of mild!

Yeah, I was wondering about that. Make your best sales pitch and let us know!! That'd be great.

Heh, my order status just changed to "ready to be picked up by UPS". Maybe I will have it in time...

Their ears were burning. See, important things do happen on the internet.

With such a low OG, could I mash 10 gallons in a five gallon cooler?

Thanks for coming up with the recipe, Evan.

Promash is saying that, with a 1.35 water/grain ratio (which I upped because I have the room), my mash volume is going to be about 5.26 gallons. If you go down to the typical 1.25 ratio, it's just at 5 gallons. You could go lower, plan for poorer efficiency, and use higher sparge volumes (and break the sparges up into more batches).
