WYeast 1098 British Ale



Will rack onto 3 lbs of apricot puree in secondary. Will either rack onto
more apricot in tertiary, or add extract before kegging.

I'm going with a more "constant" hop addition to smooth out the hop character a little. I think the apricot in secondary will bring the alcohol level up some, so I went with some 6-row to maintain some "grain" character in the backbone. Hopefully that will keep it from finishing too dry.

Whaddya think? If all goes to plan, I think it's going to be a good, big, tasty brew.

No one? I added a flameout addition of Cascade/Mt Hood (I think), and the 2 min/dry hops are supposed to be pellets, not whole. If all goes to plan, I'll brew this Sunday.

Hmmmm....seems to me that's the first thing I said when you (Sam75) sent me this recipe a few weeks back...LOL....

That is going to be one mother of a beer. Do you think you are going to taste any apricot in it? Hops is going to overpower it....I think.

you'd have to gouge my eyes out to convince me to pour freshly fermented beer atop an apricot slurry, but i hate fruit beers...

prolly toooooo many hops, i made a stout (dubbed ze dark and nasty) ages ago with four oz of hopps and it's too strong even for me, i have a few dozen bottles still sitting, prolly never will drink them

if you like all the ibu's then go for it! let us know what you think when it's done fermenting, i'm interested to know how it turns out!

Are you saying that I sent you a recipe with 8 oz of hops? I don't think so!

I've never used more than 3 oz in any recipe that I can remember. Even my last recipe used 4 different kinds of hops, but no more than 3 oz.

And I know for certain I never sent ANYONE any fruit recipes, ESPECIALLY apricot! Yechhhh! Tastes like soapy water to me.

LOL....y'all are just jealous.

Bill....he was referring to when I sent him this recipe a while back.

Maybe I'll cut back on the hops a little. From what I gather, though, Mt Hood and Wilamette are both really mild....not quite as overpowering as Cascade.

Anyway, how does the grain bill look?

the grain looks real good, give you a nice kick malt wise and alcohol content

i would use that grain bill and just pour an oz or two of kent goldings in the initial boil and then an oz at 20 minutes, chill it and drop it on a white labs irish ale yeast slurry and pack it in... nice esb

infact, i think that will be my recipe this weekend mate!
