This is a quick pic of the extract version I brewed. Turned out really well - only thing I'd change next time is to add a bit more ginger. Other than that I'm really happy with it and so far so is everyone else who's tasted it,

Thanks for posting this recipe!

Do you have an extract/partial mash version of this (I guess you'd just replace the 2 row with pale DME) recipe?

This looks awesome

Check out Page 3, I think that's where the extract recipe was.

So I made this a couple of months ago I replaced one pound of honey with grain and used 8 oz of ginger at the 30 minute mark and 8 oz at the 10 minute mark, put all the trub in to the primary and racked to secondary at 8 days. Got busy and left it in the secondary for three weeks and bottled just over a month ago. It will be on the schedule for late this winter, I want this for drinking next summer. The honey gives it the lightness of body, the ginger gives it a real bite, the lemon off sets the ginger nicely. Everyone that has tried my American Wit likes it but after tasting the Ginger Ale the want seconds of the GA. Thanks for the inspiration.

Default My Version... as a newish brewer


So, I love the idea of trying this out, but this will be my third batch, and my first partial mash. Also, I'm in Sweden and my local store has slightly different ingredients available. I'll be doing this tomorrow unless I'm told I'm an idiot beforehand!

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

Here are my plans, if anyone would be so kind as to provide feedback (positive or negative) I'd REALLY appreciate it. I've had to convert things, and swap things, I have no idea if this will remotely resemble the original. I had to switch the yeast to S-04 vs the recommended S-05. It's all they had in stock.

Code:
Recipe: Ginger Ale PM modded

-------------
2.5 oz                Ginger Root (Secondary 7.0 days)         Herb          12       -
This look like it might make a passable beer?

The pilsner grain is a total guess. They also had a pale ale, but since I was replacing the Pale 2row malt with LME already, so I replaced the Cara-Pils with Pilsner. 'Cause it had "pils" in the name. I also lowered the honey a bit, due to the quantity of LME in 1 container (1.8kg)

Thanks to anyone who takes a look...

Cara-Pils will give body and head, Pilsner will give flavor and alcohol. You might throw in a 1/2 pound of Malto-Dextrine if you can't get Cara-Pils

I should really take this outside of this thread as I'm going to turn it into a newbie-brewer thread, but I appreciate the info. I hadn't really heard of using malto-dextrine before. I'm gonna have to find something to do with my kilo of pilsner grain.

Thanks for helping this new bit of info sink in. Looks like this may not turn out to be a partial mash after all but just a straight up extract.

With 1kg pilsner you could make a 1 gallon all grain lager in these next cooler months. Add a little extra for body, like a cara or flaked corn, and a .5 oz hops split between early and late. Could be a fun experiment.

I brewed this and scaled up to 11 gallons

I used a bit more ginger than called for and grated it with a cheese grater, next time I'll look int food processors instead lol

Only other change I made was an aroma/flavor addition of some Sorachi Ace hops to add a bit more herbal notes.

Overall I really like the final product, thanks for the recipe!
