Did my first AG today. I'm very happy, got 85% efficiency.
I've been playing with my own recipies and decided to try an IPA as my first AG. Here's what I came up with...
Beer: Clearly you've never been to Singapore
Style: India Pale Ale
Type: All grain Size: 5.5 gallons
Color: 11 HCU (~8 SRM)
Bitterness: 62 IBU
OG: 1.068 FG: 1.012
Alcohol: 7.3% v/v (5.7% w/w)
Grain: 11 lb. American 2-row
8 oz. American crystal 20L
8 oz. American crystal 60L
Mash: 85% efficiency
Boil: minutes SG 1.054 7 gallons
Hops: 1 oz. Galena (11.5% AA, 60 min.)
1 oz. Cascade (6.3% AA, 30 min.)
1 oz. Cascade (6.3% AA, 10 min.)
1 oz. Cascade (aroma)
Mash temp: 154*F
Mash time: 75 minutes
Yeast: Safale SA-05
Originally, I missed my mash temp, was 2*F low. I had the forethought to start off thick in the mash, and had the room to bring up the temp to my target. I started at 1.25 qt/lb and after correction ended up at 1.33qt/lb.
