So I've started working at my homebrew shop. We're closed every home Gator game and tailgate in the parking lot with homebrew and a huge grill. I'm gonna brew something up kind of on the lighter side and with a low enough gravity to be able to have that "drinkability" we all crave for and for a quick turn around. Needs to be ready by Sept 5th.

Basically it's a smaller version of Death Brewer's SMaSH.



Batch Size 5.5 gallon
OG: 1.042

8.00 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 100.00 %

0.50 oz Northern Brewer [8.50 %] (60 min) Hops 17.3 IBU
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [8.50 %] (20 min) Hops 5.8 IBU

Thought about throwing another .5 oz or so in as a FWH.



Think it should pretty drinkable in a 3 weeks?

Had to replace Vienna for Munich. LHBS didn't have enough. Going to use S04 so hopefully this will be drinkable by the beggining of next month.

I couldn't stop eating the Munich grains, they tasted delicious.

Funny thing is I don't give a **** about watching sports. To me it's a complete waste of time.

But barbeque and beer ... those are some things I care deeply about.

Sounds interesting. Post up how it turns out. I'm about to do the same, except with one I came up with. I was really trying to figure out the cheapest recipe but still be good. Hopefully this is one. Brewing it in the next few days. Hopefully my Kentucky Common turns out well, because it's cheap too. I love tailgating, especially since the stadium is a few hundred yards from my house

What about changing your base malt to something a little more flavorful. MO, Vienna, Munich, etc.

Finished up brewing this tonight, hit all my numbers. Made a couple of addtions. Had some extra NB laying around so I did a Mash Hop. I no chill as well so my hop additions were different than the ones listed, but essentially the same.

I got a good feeling about this beer. It's got roughly 3 weeks in the primary then onto a keg. I'll report back with the results.

Let us know how it goes with Munich. I did the Vienna/NB/S05 smash and ended up with a 6.7% beer with 11 lbs of grain. I wasn't shooting that high but that is the way it went. At any rate it was so well balanced with that Vienna maltiness and nice hops taste of the northern brewer.

My buddy who is a big micro nut and quite a hop head said it was the best beer I have made so far.
