Default All-Grain - Summerfest Multigrain Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 2565
Yeast Starter: 2 liters
Batch Size (Gallons): 11
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: 1.007
IBU: 20
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 3.3 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 5 days at 55 degrees, raising to 73 over the next three weeks to encourage attenuatio
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): None
Tasting Notes: This is a fantastic floral/citrus/herbal summer ale, light in body but flavorfull

I made my own toasted malt in the oven, and it yeilded an amazing light orange color and slight biscuit note that is just great. The real magic here is allowing the 20 ibu to shine. I fermented this beer at five days at 55 degrees and then slowly raised it over the course of the following two weeks to 73 degrees. As a result the beer is CLEAN and CRISP, but attenuated fully. THis allows the hops to shine. The spalter hops are in the forefront with the cascades/ammarillos on the finish saying "hey, remember me? mr citrus?", cleaning up after the noble/herbal/spicy/mild spalter hops. The honey and extended mash help us achieve our 1.007 FG>

This beer is %6 abv, light in body and very intersting. Great for summer time. I have two kegs of this and am so glad that I do!

This is summertime in a glass...brew it now and keg it up!

More details on the toasted malt? Variety? Temp? Length?

I just took 2 pounds of the base malt, and roasted at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. It imparted a nice orange hue and subtle toasty flavor to the beer.

I supply my father in law and one of my friends with kegs of beer, and they really both enjoy this one, and asked why I decided to brew a beer with citrus added.......there is no citrus added, the hops give a great citrus note.

Looks very interesting. I'd love to give it a try.

Is the mash time really 3 hours (180 minutes)?

Must be a typo unless he had something else to do and just left it.
