I just taped another keg of this and I will be making a bigger batch next time. It is always the first to kick. I have 4 kegs and usually have 3 different brews but this will now occupy two kegs at all times.

Default Extract Recipe Question


I'm looking to do an extract version. I've done AG to extract conversion before but I'm surprised by the steeping grains in extract version of this recipe.

AG
7.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
0.75 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM)

Extract
5.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 83.3 %
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 16.7 %

Extra Light DME makes sense to keep the color as light as possible

The Carapils was increased, Why? I thought that extract already has carapils in it so I usually omit when I convert AG to Extract.

The Crystal was removed. Why? I would have left that. Is this a color thing? I know the extract will typically be a bit darker than AG. Do you think the crystal adds to the flavor? I would rather match the AG recipe in terms of flavor rather than color.

Dropping the Vienna makes sense. This has to be mashed. I guess you could add in a little munich DME but probably not worth the trouble.

Thanks for the help

Tom

What are people getting for an FG on this? I just brewed my second batch and it got down to 1.004. OG was 1.042. 90% attenuation? Wow. First batch was something like 1.008. And yes, hydrometer is calibrated.

Edit : used notty

Notty always finishes lower for me then us-05. This batch I split in two separate buckets since my conical was in use. The one with notty was 1.004 and the us-05 was 1.007. OG was 1.043. I like the taste of the US-05 a little better.

Glad I'm not the only one. Come to think of it, I think I used S-05 on my first one. That may be the difference. Still, 90% attenuation is pretty nuts!

Edit: Based on the attenuation, I'm gonna have about a 5% rather than 4%. I think next time, I'm going to mash higher to get the FG up and add a little more body

My batch (in secondary as we speak) started at 1.046 (+1# of the base malt) and it ended around 1.010-1.008. That was with Nottingham.

Made this 4 weeks ago. My first attempt at all-grain/BIAB. In copying the recipe, I missed the Crystal 10L. I also ended up with Simcoe instead of Centennial hops. I messed up the volumes a bit, mash temp was on the low side (but still where BM recommended) and was off on the OG and FG.

After two weeks in the bottles, I cracked one last night. This was outstanding! Holy cow! I have to run to the LHBS and get the ingredients and do this right! If it's this good with all my screw ups, I can only imagine what the real beer tastes like!

Dan - that's encouraging to me! My OG was on the low side 1.036 (with a lot of cold break in hydro), first AG BIAB also. If its beer and it tastes good I could care less about the details though .

I see Biermuncher recommends time in secondary in OP. How necessary is this? Considering skipping secondary, especially since I currently do not have a 3 gal vessel.

Malty Dog,

I didn't secondary. 2 weeks in primary, then bottled. I think the time in secondary is really for keg clearing/conditioning. I could be wrong though....don't keg (yet).

As you say, it's beer, so it's all good!

-Dan

Secondary isn't necessary per se, but the flavors clear up quite a bit after a little conditioning—which could be in the bottle, in the keg, or in a secondary vessel.
