Brew day went well... But the beer came out more brown than I'd have hoped. At least that's how it looks in the fermenter at present... Had a bit of a orange hue though when I was taking my gravity reading. I'll keep you guys posted... Still early days yet.

Would this work with Chico yeast? Wlp001


What does this compare to for common reds?

WLP001 is the yeast that I used so yes, it will work!

as far as what red does it compare to? no idea.

First BIAB, first AG. Process went smoothly, save for having to boil down for TWO HOURS because I grossly overestimated the amount of necessary sparge water. Beersmith is telling me I still hit 72.5%.

Just went in the bottle today. It's going to be a loooooong 21 days, judging by how insanely good the test sample tasted.



Here's what my version ended up looking like.

8 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 72.7 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 2 9.1 %
8.0 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.5 %
8.0 oz Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 4 4.5 %
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 5 15.4 IBUs
0.25 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 15.0 mins) Fining 6 -
1.00 oz Willamette [5.50 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 7 6.1 IBUs
1.0 pkg Nottingham Yeast (Lallemand) [23.66 ml] Yeast 8 -
1 lbs Honey (1.0 SRM) Sugar 9 9.1 %

Beer Profile

Est Original Gravity: 1.059 SG Measured Original Gravity: 1.052 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.012 SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.018 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 6.1 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 4.5 %
Bitterness: 21.5 IBUs Calories: 175.9 kcal/12oz
Est Color: 14.7 SRM

Looks pretty dark going in, but when one of the bottles caught the sun it was glowing.

congrats on your first of many BIAB brews!! This beer was my first BIAB (and first AG) as well. Yep, the beer looks pretty dark until it gets backlit.. then BAM

Mysticmead,

What is the ABV of this brew? Also, how would it affect the taste and color if I added 2 lbs of honey instead of 1? (I'll be using Orange Blossom Honey btw)

this is a 6-6.5% beer (depending on how well it ferments for you. ) adding as extra pound of honey will raise it to 7-7.5%. I probably wouldn't change the color much but the taste would change. Probably have a noticeable alcohol warming which is out of place for the style
