Default Partial mash version, 4.25 gallon


I'll be trying a partial mash of this in my 5 gallon carboy. Here is my conversion. If you're doing a 5 batch gallon, add 1/2 pound of extract, and increase corn to 1lb, cara-pils, 20l, 60l, 80l to 1/2 pound and chocolate to 4 oz.

I'll report back in 6 weeks or so with results

Makes 4.25 gallon

Grains / Fementables
2 lbs 2-row
2 1/2 pounds pale liquid malt extract (note: 2 pounds are for late addition)
14.4 oz flaked corn
7 oz Cara-pils
7 oz 20l
7 oz 60l
7 oz 80l
3 oz Chocolate malt

Hops
0.55oz Target - 60min
0.25oz EK Goldings - 15min
Yeast:
1099 prepared with 1.2 quart starter

Misc
Irish moss, 10 minutes

Method:
Mash grains at 152 with 5 quarts water (strike temp around 170)
Mash out at 168
10 minute sparge with 1 gallon water in brew pot
Add 1/2 pound extract at beginning of boil
Boil, do the hop thing, don't forget irish moss
Add remainder (2 pounds) extract at flame out
Target OG: 1.046

Beer porn. This turned out great. I used Whorflock during the last 10 min of the brew. The beer is really clear and awesome. Thanks again for the recipe.

I'm planning a 5 or 5.5 gallon batch of this but i'm a bit confused. BM's recipe says 11 gallons, but he says it's for a 10 gallon batch. Which is it?

Also wondering what the concesus is on the original recipe vs all the changes some of you have made like dropping the roasted barley. Should I stick with the original as BM intended or are there some beneficial tweeks I need to consider?

i think the extra is to account for loss (trub, etc). so you'd ferment 5.5 gallons and bottle about 5

I hate to be one of those "I love this recipe, here's how I changed it so it's totally different" types, but for my 5 gal batch, I used .5lb 20, 60, and .2 lb 120. No roast or chocolate. I don't much like roast. I also used 6.5lb pale malt with 1.5lb wheat malt instead of the cara-pils. Finally I used some Irish yeast I had sitting around. Color and flavor came out great. Even though I changed it, I think the core idea is the same, if you don't like roast barley you could do this crystal bill.

This is what has me confused. With beersmith I have my profile set with zero trub loss because I dump everything from the kettle into the fermentation bucket. It does account for fermentation loss from transfers and trub but still has the batch volume equal to my final desired boil volume.

I guess the better question would be if I'm making the original recipe am I doing a 5 or 5.5 gallon batch?

Alright, getting the ingredients ordered from AHS today. I plan to keep BM's original recipe but drop the roasted barley. All AHS carries is dark roasted barley, and at 500L I'm afraid it would be a little over the top for this beer. I'm going to plug the recipe into beersmith and see whether a 5 or 5.5 gallon batch gets me closer to the original recipes OG and IBU's figuring on my usual 72% efficiency with AHS's crush. Thanks BM. Looking forward to this one!!

i believe it would be a 5.5 gallon batch per beersmith

This is the second time that I have brewed this. I had some issues this time. My mash temp was way to high. I believe it ended up being 159-160. My yeast was dead and ended up having to use safale04 instead. It has been in the primary for 2.5 weeks. The final gravity is 1.016 instead of 1.007. Is this going to be drinkable?
