Default Multiple - "Old Bog Road" Brown Ale

Recipe Type: Partial Mash
Yeast: Safale US-05
Yeast Starter: no
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.060
Final Gravity: 1.017
IBU: 33
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 20 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @ 66
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 day @ 66

Note, this can be done either as a Partial Mash or an extract with special grains, as the vistory can be either mashed or steeped.

For partial mashes, I use an unmodified cooler with a wire folding steamer in the bottom and a large grainbag affixed with a rubber band. The steamer lifts the grainbag above the level of the spigot and helps prevent stuck sparges.


Basic Info (What the recipe should be, not what I got when I made it the first time (Numbers according to beercalculus.)

O.G. 1.072 (1.064 to 1.075)
F.G. 1.019 (1.017 to 1.021)

.5oz Fuggles 4% AAU (@20)

Mash for 90 minutes @ 155 degrees (Heated the water to 170 and added to 69 degree grain) with 1.25 quarts of water/pound of grain. Batch sparge with 2 gallons. Add DME as you normally would.

All Grain Version
9lbs, 6oz 2-Row
1lb Victory
1lb Special Roast
1lb Crystal 60L
.5lb Carapils/dextrine
.25 Chocolate
1oz Cascade 6.3% AAU (@60)
.25oz Galena 13.4% AAU (@60) (Can use warrior, nugget or any high AA substitute depending on availability)
.5oz Fuggles 4% AAU (@20)
.5oz Fuggles 4%AAU (@5)

1 tsp Irish Moss at 15

You could use any clean ale yeast for this, but you'll get a crisper character with Irish Ale yest, of course.

Enjoy

Update 10-22-08 I added a half pound of carapils/dextrine to each of the original grain bills, for a bit more head retention. That was the one percieved "flaw" mentioned in both contests I entered it into this year, the lack of much of a head....I also added a pound of rauchmalt which though not overwhelmingly smoky, had some depth, but it is optional...I also racked have the batch onto a fistful of Jack Daniels Oak Smoking Chips, that I had soaked for two weeks in a pint of Jack to sanitize...it came out fantastic..It took about 8 weeks to mellow the oak, but it came out nice...I have set aside a six pack to enter into contests this summer....If I had known that Sam Adam's Longshot rquired 4 bottles, I would have stuck a few more aside..As it is, I plan to brew another batch in time for next year's longshot...

Just what I was looking for! Either tonight or tomorrow I'm heading to the LHBS to pick up these supplies. We'll see what their hop selection looks like.

Cool, hope you like it.

I brewed a version of this this weekend with a pound of smoked Rauch malt added in for a bit of smoky-complexity, without hopefully being too over powering. What I plan on doing is to rack half the batch into a 3 gallon secondary over bourbon soaked oak chips. It should be interesting to see what happens.

I'm doing this right now, but with Centennial instead of Galena (about .3 oz).

Hope it turns out well!

My LHBS does not carry special roast. I was hoping to brew this recipe this weekend following the extract recipe. Wondering if there are recommendations for special roast substitutions.

No there is no direct substitution for Special Roast....you could try "Special B" perhaps...it won't be the same, but it might be better....

or there was a thread on here from waayyy back that said the A mix of Victory & C120L would get close. You could up the Vistory by another half pound and add a half pound of c-120...

Either one you chose will be a nice beer, I bet...

Please post back here how it turns out.

Thanks for considering my recipe!
