I brewed the all grain dead ringer ipa this morning. I miss calculated my strike temp and this missed my mash temp. Which then I think also made my OG lower than it should have been. Came in at 1.052 instead of 1.064. Which has me a bit worried. Oh well, we'll see how it comes out.

I'm brewing my entry into a homebrew club competition tomorrow. My homebrewing club runs a competition that encourages people to push the envelope and get outside of their comfort zone. You are forced to pick special ingredients and yeast from a preselected list, then use a preselected grain bill. You are allowed to modify your malt by roasting/toasting/smoking it. Epic failures are applauded more so than playing it safe. The event is all about learning and growing as a brewer. So I'm going with something that is sure to be terrible

Apple Wood Smoked Cinnamon Pomegranate Ale

I smoked the malt 2 weeks ago (my first time smoking malt) and had to pick a minimum of 2 of the following special ingredients: Pomegranate, Cinnamon, Grains of Paradise, Chamomile, Heather, Saffron to go along with the malt bill provided. The "easy route" would have been to do a Pomegranate Chamomile Wheat Beer, but the grain bill didn't have enough wheat in it to make a wheat beer and going the easy route is against the entire spirit of this competition. I did select WLP380 (Hefeweizen IV) yeast because it gives clove and plum notes. Kind of took some inspiration from some Moroccan and Iraqi sauce reductions that use cinnamon, pomegranate, and clove. Then decided to do the apple wood smoking because I naively thought it would also add a small amount of apple flavor to the beer. I figured the smoke would add complexity and the apple and cinnamon pairing was a classic so why not. Now I'm finding out from lots of homebrewers that I'll probably just get some smoke in the profile but no apple. Oh well!
