Partial Mash Amarillo faux SMaSH
This is the first non-clone non-published recipe that I have actually felt comfortable posting.
I tried this brew after 3 weeks in the bottle and I tell ya - it is my favorite of the 21 batches I've brewed. All of my batches are normal beer - nothing fruity, just good ol Ambers, Porters, APA, IPA Stouts.
Not a TRUE SMaSH but for us Partial mash people it's close.
Simple yet effective.
Brew Date 1/03/09
Bottle date 2/10/09
Longer then normal in the carboys but there seems to be more smoothness in the mouthfeel - could be recipe? could be a coincidence.
I'm loving Amarillo.
I had two 3 gallon batches going on the stove so it was basically a full boil.
Approx IBU 30.1
Extra Pale LME 3.3lb
Pale DME 1.4lb
Maris Otter Malt 4lb
Amarillo 1oz 60min
Amarillo 0.5oz 30min
Amarillo 0.5oz 5min
Amarillo 1oz 3 days Dry Hop
Washed Wyeast American Ale 1056
Mashed at 153 in 1.5 gallons of water
Whirlfloc and Yeast Energizer added 15 minutes. Cooled from 212 to 78 in 1/2 hour and pitched Washed yeast at that point.
Keep your base malt and brand of LME/DME constant, and play with different hops. SMaSH enough for me!
I'll be honest and I was not expecting something so simple to taste so good. Since the DME and LME are not Maris Otter I felt it was not a "true" Smash but geez. I hope it ages well.
Keep us informed on how this comes out! I have a pound of Amarillo in the freezer and I wanna do a SMaSH too.
This sounds great! Probably going to give this a go within the next two weeks! Thanks-
Brewed this one up and just dry hopped it. Gonna do 7 days instead of the 3. Will let ya know how it comes out.
I'm doing a warminster Maris otter smash in a few days and have been torn between Amarillo and Simcoe but think that I'm gonna go with Amarillo due to your results!!!! Thanks
Grinder - I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to let you know that I brewed this recipe and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing!
