  • Posted in thread: Muskoka Brewery Detour IPA recipe help on 05-01-2015 at 01:57 AM
    I was just in Buffalo a few weeks ago and picked up a Muskoka mixed pack to drink before and
    after the Tragically Hip concert. The mixed pack did not have "Detour" but it did have "Mad
    Tom" IPA, which...

    A wheat malt that is 10L is a dark wheat malt, similar to Munich malt. If you use the dark
    wheat, I would expect it to add a more pronounced malt flavor. If you are using wheat for its
    head retention ...

    Yes, you can substitute C-40 for Caramunich in this case, especially since it's a small amount,
    mostly for a color adjustment.How dark of wheat malt do you want to use? One pound isn't a high

    I would keep the 1 lbs of Munich and add a few ounces or Cara Munich on top of that.Saison is a
    very broad category, so you can certainly have a hoppy one if you want. Most common examples
    focus more ...

    Did you have late addition flavor/aroma hops? If so, it is possible that the decay of the
    potency of these hops over time is decreasing your perception of bitterness.I don't see mention
    of simple suga...

    Your malt bill looks good and I have made a very similar recipe before that turned out well. If
    you want to make a color adjustment, I would suggest a couple ounces of carafa malt or perhaps
    a few oun...

    It is perfectly acceptable to use rice instead of corn in a cream ale. If a gelatinized rice
    such as flaked rice or minute rice is not available, you can easily cook white rice and then
    add it to the ...

    I spent time there in December and my favorite was Rapp. It's across the bay closer to St.
    Pete, though. I tried 10 of their beers and 8 of those were winners.

    Check out T-58 dry yeast. I just brewed a beer with it and the temp never went above 65 F. The
    resulting beer has a very noticeable pepper flavor.

    I always raise the temp to at least 65-70 on lagers in the last few days of fermentation
    (around day 7 or 12 or so) - this is known as a diacetyl rest. So basically you got a d-rest on
    autopilot, no h...
