Default Old Hootnanny

Reserving a thread for tomorrow's brew. why? because im really bored.

anyways, its a take on North Coast Brewing Co's Old Stock which is an English old ale weighing in at 12%abv. A big thanks to Xiang for providing me with insight as to how this brew might go down in a thread asking for the recipe.

8oz 120L
12oz 90L
8oz Rice hulls

2oz Kent Goldings (15 min) 4.5aa
1oz Kent Goldings (5 min) 4.5aa
1oz Kent Goldings (0 min) 4.5aa

Batch sparge:
16.58 lbs of grain total
Target 6.5gal pre boil
1.33 w/g
.2 absorption rate
STRIKE: 5.51g at 165*F (hold at 152 for 75 minutes)
MASH OUT: 1 gallon at 207*F
SPARGE WATER: 3.25g at 170*F
Total water: 9.75g

IBU: 40
SRM: 26.7
EFF @ 100%= 1.135

lookin' good. you might consider just using sanitized foil on top of your starter and swirling it often to get good gas exchange. if you have the airlock on, no oxygen can get in... good luck with brewin!

What was your ratio of DME to water? I did a starter last brewday and mine seemed a bit bigger. Yours might just be better!
