Well I brewed this up yesterday with a slightly different recipe. I was trying to scale it to a 6gal recipe, but I had some trouble weighing out precise amounts of the Roasted Barley and Crystal 120 at the LHBS. I also fudged the hops amounts using the 10gal hops amounts instead of the scaled-down amount (whoops)
I ended up with the following:
7.5# Maris Otter
0.5# Roasted Barley (300L Briess)
0.25# Crystal 120L
Mash @ 153F, BIAB, 8.5gal water for 90min
Pre-boil Vol: 8.0gal, gravity 1.040
2oz Fuggles (4.0% AA) 75min
1oz Kent Goldings (4.5%AA) 15min ~31IBUs
Whirl Floc 10 min
Post boil Vol: 5.5gal, Gravity 1.054 Efficiency ~78%
WLP051 Yeast with 2Qt starter
After brewing this came out really dark, looked more brown than it did ruby red. I wasn't sure is that was just because of the trub since everything in the pot went into the fermenter. I also know the hops are going to be too much for this style, but it shouldn't make for a bad beer.
Sacchro - Did the color look more borwn going into the fermenter? If not I'll probably just rename this version something like a "Poor Dirty Irish Ale". I think next time around I'll definitely scale the specialty grains better since I think that was the root of my problem.
Thanks again for the recipe!
