Walker, what category is this recipe fit under? Looks like it might be an amber/red with the munich and victory giving it a biscuit flavor.

I try to not get too hung up on styles, but this fits more into the pale style than it does amber.

The Munich gives it some richness and the victory gives it a little toasty flavor.

I've only made this one three times total. It was the recipe I used for my first AG batch a few years ago. Brewed it again several months ago when I got back on the homebrewing horse after a year or so long break, and then brewed it last night for my first HERMS batch.

I'm sure I'll tweak it some more before I am 100% happy with it.

I usually don't focus too much on styles either. I really just try and have something a little different in each of my 6 kegs available and this one looked interesting when I saw it. I will give it a swing and see what comes out of it!

I bet you had a good time making this on your new rig! I saw your other thread about your set up. Congratulations! I hope to settle on a new system soon. Been doing lots of research into HERMS vs. RIMS (think I am doing the RIMS).

I just entered this into Beer Alchemy. I'm gonna make it after my next batch. Thanks for sharing, I like how this recipe looks. Beer Alchemy has it coming out a more pale color than I think it will turn out, but color is not that program's strong point in my experience.

, but it's my thread so....


I went HERMS because I already had the copper coil and figured I could get away with one heater element instead of two, so it seemed overall cheaper to do it that way.

If I ever decide to change my mind, I can add a RIMS tube to the system and brew that way instead. There is room in the control panel to add another heater element and the controls are all there already.

Having lived in Santa Maria for a breif period I have to ask why did you name it that?

[QUOTE=Walker;2110971], but it's my thread so....





I put this in my Beersmith and came up with 7.8 SRM and the IBU right on at 51.5 (using Columbus)

The way that I tend to ferment (low and slow) I hope to get it down to 1.010 which gives it a 5.74% ABV. I don't currently have any Columbus hops, so what do you think of using Centennial instead?

Sure... why not? I'm sure it'll be good either way.

Because of the "Columbus" hops. Santa Maria sounded better than "Nina" or "Pinta".

The full name of the recipe, because of the columbus hops as well as the fact that it was my very first AG brew, was originally "Santa Maria's Maiden Voyage".

I guess if I had not spent time there I would have gotten the association.
