Default Thoughts on this?


Decided to try this one base on what I had laying around. Based on beersmith, this is what I'm looking at...

11.5 gallon batch
77% efficiency brew house efficiency
82% mash efficiency (will probably be higher)
Est Original Gravity: 1.046 SG Measured Original Gravity: 1.046 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.011 SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.010 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 4.6 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 4.7 %
Bitterness: 24.1 IBUs Calories: 151.6 kcal/12oz
Est Color: 3.8 SRM

15 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 78.9 %
2 lbs Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 2 10.5 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 3 5.3 %
1 lbs Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 4 5.3 %
0.33 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 55.0 min Hop 5 2.9 IBUs
0.33 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 55.0 min Hop 6 6.9 IBUs
0.33 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 35.0 min Hop 7 2.5 IBUs
0.33 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 35.0 min Hop 8 5.8 IBUs
0.33 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 20.0 min Hop 9 4.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 10 1.7 IBUs
0.33 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 11 0.5 IBUs
2.0 pkg American Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1272)

Dextrine is a bit high and slightly low on Vienna and caramel, but should be pretty good yeah?

Biermuncher, I substituted crystal 20 for your half pound of crystal 10. I realize now i should of used carapils or even crystal 40. Am I screwed or is it just going to be a darker beer? Followed the rest of the recipe to a T.

Crystal 20 is closer to the original than the Crystal 40 you speak of. You are correct that Cara-Pils would have been closer to C*10 than C*20 is. But that's still okay. It should come out more or less the same - slightly darker and a little maltier, perhaps.

I wouldn't expect a true Blonde to have much hop aroma, or not a lot anyways, but if that's what you want, go for it.

If anyone has racked this onto fruit, can you provide some details? I'm thinking of doing a strawberry or raspberry version for SWMBO.

Hmmm. In the process of racking it to secondary I decided to taste it. I was afraid that I had tainted it somehow since this was my first all grain brew. But I was shocked! It definitely smells like something crappy with the addition of the strong hops. But it's taste is actually quite unique and smooth with hint of hops and hardly any ill after taste. It's aroma smells like something of a poison to me at first but I don't know how to describe it other than that. It's definitely not a "sweet" or "fragrant" smell and actually resembles something along the lines of a store bought lager that has sat in the sun without being chilled. So in this case it will prolly rock and roll once bottled and chilled.

So I am quite excited to try this one out. My OG was 1.038 and it looks like my FG is 1.010 or a tad under. So it looks like my ABV will be about 3.6%

I'm sure it will be much stronger on the next batch now that I think I've ironed out my MLT temp swing problems with a few tips from other members.

I think I may do one more 5 gallon batch before I start moving into the land of "****...that's a LOT of beer!"
