Today I was able to brew what will hopefully be a good summertime beer. The recipe I used is one I came up with,and hopefully it will turn out good.
6.6 lbs light LME
.75 lbs Caramel 10L
1 oz Mangum
1.5 oz Centennial
I steeped the grain for about 30 minutes at 160°,
I did a full 60 minute boil with 1/2 of the LME and the Mangum. I added 1 oz of the Centennial at 15 minutes and the other 1/2 oz at 5 minutes. The OG looks to be about 1.044 so I am hoping this turns out nicely for a light beer. I guess I'll find out in about 2 1/2 weeks. ImageUploadedByHome Brew1404606471.963902.jpg
I just brewed my third batch (4th if you count my mead). It's still exciting. My third batch was the same recipe as the first, but corrected my mistakes. We'll see if it's as good, or better than the first. It was pretty awesome.
