Default All-Grain - Mason's Winter Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale S-04 English Ale
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.072
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 63
Boiling Time (Minutes): 75
Color: 25
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 weeks
Additional Fermentation: 2-6 week cold storage optional
Tasting Notes: Sweet malt w/plum/roast; citrus/slight herbal hoppy finish

This winter warmer turned out to be one of the best beers I have ever brewed. I was shooting for something in the ballpark of Dechutes Jubelale, to give you an idea of what it kinda tastes like.

I kegged this batch after about 4 week primary, then let it chill in my lager fridge for about 6 months (I wanted to save it for fall). It is a little bit on the malty side up front, just bitter enough, with a very nice almost fruity, slightly herbal finishing aroma and aftertaste. This is a very well balanced, tasty beer that got many positive comments and was the brew that kept everyone going back for more. Enjoy!

I usually dry hop for 7-10 days before kegging. Sometimes I let them sit much longer though. I've never had problems either way. Enjoy!
