Completely missed the protein rest. Hit 148 degF. Added some more boiling water to hit 150 degF and mashed for 60mins.
2 oz. Hallertau (60 mins.)
0.5 oz Glacier (30 mins.) --> LBHS out of S. Golding
1 oz. Saaz (3 mins.)
0.5 oz Glacier (0 mins.)
Finished with OG of 1.082 (Target was 1.084)
Used Wyeast 3787 (ofcourse, made a starter)
Fermentation took-off with in few hrs... Got violent after 16 hrs.
Replaced air lock with blow-off tube.
After 24. hrs I see some hop, yeast mix being blown off the tube...
Got some yeast +hop slurry on the basement carpet (renting a rug doctor before wife imposes ban on brewing)
Hope there is enough yeast still in there to take the FG down.
Anyone care to share a picture of the final product.... please
Kegged on 7/27
This is a very tasty brew...
Looks hazy golden with 1" creamy head that quickly disappears...
Smells very refreshing, low on the biterness...hint if sweetness... has fruity notes and finishes of with a slight alcohol warming down the throat.
Also, this is one potent brew... 2 pints and I was looking for a pillow.
I am a hophead but still like this beer... anyone on the fence.... BREW IT!!!
