Default All-Grain - Tunisian Brown

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 1056
Yeast Starter: 1500 ml
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: 70 ml of slurry from previous batch used for starter.
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.68

IBU: 34.3
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90

Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days at 68.
Tasting Notes: English hop and malt character with American yeast.

This is a sort of hybrid style. The hops are typically British in character with a lot of earthy notes, which goes nicely with the darker malt character. This one is almost a Brown Porter. Malt is bready and toasty with chocolate malt evident. Full mouthfeel with a dry finish. Not overly bitter. No roast at all. No yeast character, just clean on that front. Dropped bright, no haze at all.

Matt,

How would you characterize this beer's hop profile? I actually find the hops even more interesting than the delicious looking grist bill.

I've heard Challenger described as a super Fuggles: big earthy flavors.
And Styrians described as spicier Fuggles, with more of an aged quality.

Are we getting the most desirable/prominent fuggles qualities out of this beer?


Also, would either C-150 or Special B provide a suitable substitute to the C-350?

Thanks!

Hey!

Well, it's from 2 years ago, so I can't really recall. It's 40 batches ago! ;-)

Anyway, I'd go with the comments posted with the recipe itself in the original post. From memory, the hops weren't overly pronounced but there was some earthy edge to the beer that was pleasant.

I think Special B would be closer to the Crystal 350 than Crystal 150 would be.
