Tortures of the Damned

American Amber Ale
Type: All Grain Date: 11/16/2011
Batch Size (fermenter): 5.50 gal Brewer: Wastelands Brewing Co.
Boil Size: 7 gal


Taste Notes: Malty and somewhat sweet with caramel and toasted overtones. Well balanced enough with hop character balancing malty sweetness. Nice deep amber color (not red, which is what I had in mind, though it "tastes" like a red) and plenty of nice white foamy head when poured. Hazy - perhaps due to the flaked barley. I intend to use whirlfloc in any future brews with flaked barley, which is damn nearly all of them. A bit on the sweet side for my tastes, but the hop bitterness (Norther Brewer still my favorite bittering hop) and toastiness more than compensate for the sweetness.

Mash at 152'F

Primary 2 weeks at 62'F (I only maintain 62'F during the first few days while fermentation is active, then i allow the temp to rise to around 68-70'F over the next several days and maintain for remainder).

Keg/bottle and age for 2-3 more weeks then serve.

I had 1/4 oz amarillo on hand so I decided to use it, you could probably just increase the cascade without changing the flavor profile much.

Is the beer name a reference to Bayside?

I just put together a variation on your recipe with 1/2lb of honey, a large Rhubarb (pureed) and few teaspoons of ground Pink Peppercorn.

We also changed the hops around a bit to account for the added sweetness of the Rhubarb.

Thanks for the baseline, I think we're going to name it The Tormented Donkey in homage to your brew name (: (dont ask about why my buddy wants it named Donkey...)

Cheers!

I wanted to brew this one again but I have been sticking to extract batches on account of the weather (record heat with random torrential downpours on a daily basis). Threw together the below for the occasion. Gravity was 6 points too high but the hydro sample tasted great at kegging. Pics and update will follow after I tap the keg next week.

Tapped the keg this weekend, extract version is pretty much identical to the all grain, but for the extra gravity/alcohol. This beer is always a big hit with beer drinkers and the uncultured masses alike.
