Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 2.43 gal
Estimated OG: 1.052 SG
Estimated Color: 20.3 SRM
Estimated IBU: 24.5 IBU
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------

6 lbs Sorghum Syrup (15 min)
1 lb Buckwheat, roasted (40 SRM)

I steeped the grains at 155-F for 30 min. then added the hops, maple syrup, molasses and candi sugar. The rest was added as the schedule above. My OG was 1.054

I'll rack to secondary in a week, then bottle after another week. 3 weeks bottle conditioning and it should be ready 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, if it's good I'll post the recipe in the database but it looks good and smelled good. Let me know if you guys try it

I had some sorghum syrup sitting around that I've been ignoring in favor of experimenting with malted grains. I decided to brew with it last night and my recipe is pretty similar to yours.

Batch Size: 5 gallons
Boil Size: 5 gallons
OG: 1.050
Color: No where near as dark as Beersmith estimated
Estimated IBU: 27.2

Ingredients
6 lbs sorghum syrup (60 min)
1 lb dark roasted buckwheat (15 min)
12 fl oz Molasses
1 oz Sterling pellets (60 min)
.75 oz Sterling pellets (15 min)
8 oz Malto Dextrin
1 pkg Nottingham


If mine's any good, we should trade a few bottles.

I'd be down for that. I've been wondering if I should have added some malto-dextrin...maybe I'll add it to the pumpkin ales I'm brewing next weekend.

Hi, a couple of questions,

why do you store your roasted grain in paper bags?

Is the maple syrup for colour or taste? or both?

Cheers

Colm

The grains are in the paper bags because they are "wafting", I think that the proper term? I roasted them myself so they need to mellow, otherwise it might add a taste I don't want.

The maple syrup added fermentable sugar but as far as the flavor goes, I don't know what it will contribute and it didn't really impact the color like the blackstrap molasses did.

Thanks for the recipe and tips. I really want to brew a darker beer, the last two I've done have been good but a little light for my taste.

I have one more question, how do you measure a SRM of 275?

Cheers

Colm

It does help add some body. It isn't fermentable, so I don't see why you couldn't add it now or at bottling.
