Going for a light summer beer for easy drinking and so far it's turned out really nice.
8oz of the following: Honey Malt, Flaked Corn, Flaked Rice, Flaked Wheat, 6 Row
4oz Special Roast
1lb. 2 Row
3lb. Extra Light DME
2oz Zeus Hops 16.4%
Heated 1 gal of water to about 130 and held grains for 20 minutes
Bump heat to 150 and hold for 1 hour
Add 3 more gallons and start boiling
60 min Remaining .25oz hops
25 min remaining .25oz hops
10 min remaining .25oz hops, 1Tsp Nutrient, 1 Whirlfloc, DME
5 min remaining .25oz hops
0 min remaining .25oz hops, 1/2lb cane sugar
rehydrate yeast while waiting to cool
pitched around 70 degrees and used frozen 2ltr bottles to keep it cooler during fermentation. Racked to keg after about 3 weeks and pitched with 5oz priming sugar. It's sitting in a keg waiting to be consumed. I don't have a regulator so my carb level is all over the place, the first growler was foamy but flat (?) so I'm just going to keep it untapped until I take it to a rehearsal dinner for one of my friends.
Never worked with Zues hops before, but it seems really refreshing in this beer.
