Default All-Grain - Copperhead Red Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: S-04
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.000
IBU: 23.15
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 14.7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 19 days at 56 F
Additional Fermentation: 2 weeks in bottle at room temp.
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 28 days at 56 F
Tasting Notes: Sweet caramel with a refreshing finish.

MALTS

10 lb 2-row
0.75 lb crystal 60
4 oz RB (I would do 1-2 oz next time but it tastes great as is, just a little darker than I wanted)

HOPS

0.75 oz Northern Brewer 8.5% AA for 23.15 IBU's

YEAST

S-04 properly rehydrated

MASH

60 mins at 154 with 13.75 quarts water
Sparge with 19 quarts.

RESULTS

A very smooth, sweet beer that is an easy drinker. It's a little darker than I would have preferred, but decreasing the RB will help with that next time.

Pics momentarily...

Fermenting low was crucial to this not becoming an estery conglomeration. It makes it nice and clean.

What kind of roasted barley did you use? Also do you know what the lovibond was for the roasted barley?

1.000 terminal gravity, was this things really dry tasting? I know you mashed at 154 so it shouldn't be too dry, but I'm just curious once I saw that FG.

No it actually has a nice sweet and crisp mouthfeel. It's not thin at all. I actually had to recheck my notes bc I thought it was a typo since it doesn't feel or taste like a 1.000 beer at all.

I just realized that 1.000 was what my brix was calculated to before I knew there was an equation to adjust for alcohol. Oops! Since then I broke my refractometer, which is a super bummer

My batch got ruined after 6 hours of labor because a cheap thermometer exploded in my wort right before pitching...re-brewing in a week or so. Super bummer...
