tim, i'm brewing your latest version as i type. looking forward to it!

any suggestions as to how to do a partial mash version? aside from a bunch of gluten-free beers that ive made recently, i've never actually done an extract brew. started right with all-grain, so i have no idea how i would convert the recipe!

the reason is that i would love to make larger quantity batches and i cant afford to upgrade my equipment at this point, so i was hoping a different method would help me with that.

jman, I am not sure how doing a partial mash would increase your volume of beer? I suppose you have a small mash tun, but a large kettle?

anyway, the conversion for grain to extract is below (found on another site) for this beer, I would replace the 2 row with extract, and just mash the Munich and specialty grains together. That would free up 6.5 lbs of mash space for you.

p.s. Very glad you are enjoying this recipe. I served a keg of it at my 40th B-day party along with 4 other beers made by brew buddies. The IRA was the crowd favorite.

ALL-GRAIN TO EXTRACT
Amount of pale malt x .8125 = amount of liquid malt extract
(example: 8 lbs. pale malt x .8125 = 6.5 lbs. liquid malt extract)
Amount of pale malt x .6875 - amount of dry malt extract (DME)
(example: 8 lbs. pale malt x .6875 = 5.5 lbs. dry malt extract)
Amount of wheat malt x .937 = amount of liquid wheat malt extract
(example: 6.5 lbs. wheat malt x .937 = 6.1 lbs. liquid malt extract)

EXTRACT TO ALL-GRAIN
Amount of liquid malt extract x 1.23 - amount of pale malt
(example: 6.6 lbs. liquid malt extract x 1.23 = 8.1 lbs. pale malt)
Amount of dry malt extract x 1.45 - amount of pale malt
(example: 5 lbs. dry malt extract x 1.45 = 7.25 lbs. pale malt)
Amount of liquid wheat extract x 1.07 - amount of wheat malt
(example: 6.6 lbs. wheat extract x 1.07 = 7 lbs. wheat malt)

Tim,

I am not quite done with my brewstand so I am still partial-mashing. Given all the information you've put out and Mosher's P.M. info would you agree this would be an acceptable partial-mash recipe?

Pale DME 4.47lbs
Munich type 1 (10L) 5 lbs.
Crystal 40L .75 lbs
Crystal 90L .5 lbs
Black malt 1 oz

All whole hops
Simcoe(13% aa) 1 oz 60 min
Amarillo(9.3% aa)1 oz 30 min
Cascade (7% aa)1 oz 5 min

Simcoe .5 oz dry hops
Amarillo 1 oz dry hops
Cascade .5 oz dry hops

Mash 6.3 quarts 165* 45-60 mins
Rinse 1 gal 180*
Add water to get 7 gallons
Boil 90 min
Wyeast 1056 American Ale

Boil 90 min

Ferment 10 days primary, 7 days secondary with dry hops. Transfer to Keg Carb 1-2 weeks. Enjoy.

Hey, jmkratt- yes that looks just right (at least according the conversion chart in the previous post). I am so happy a few of the HBT brewers have tried and like this recipe.

Just to give proper credit, this is based on a recpe from Mosher's Radical Brewing, the hops have changed to protect the innocent.

Good on you for the brewstand, I am planning on building one soon. What are you making?

Thanks Tim,

Yeah I am reading Radical Brewing now and that's how I found your recipe. I hope to jump up to all-grain soon but for now I am going to try your out. I like the changes you made to the hop schedule! Thanks for the feedback, I will report back as to how it goes!

EDIT: Didn't see that last question at first, sorry, just making a 2-tiered Woody which will have to do until I can upgrade. Not tough, just takes time from brewing and I am procrastinating.

If you're into buying hops by the LB. check out hopsdirect. I usually put in an order for 2 or 3lbs at about $15/Lb. Not affiliated with them, just passing the find along.

Funny you should mention them, my brew crew and I ordered 11 lbs from them in the spring! prices from $8-15 per pound, and we got the hops in 2 days!

This is one of my favorites and made it for the 2nd time yesterday. I stayed true to the original recipe except substituted Fuggles for the EKG because I was out of EKG.

OG: 1.060

I am planning to brew the original AG version of this recipe. Unfortunately, there was a mix up in the hops I ordered. I have 4oz Simcoe 14.4% and 2oz Cascade 6.5%, all whole. Any thoughts on using all Simcoe instead of Simcoe and Amarillo? The IBU was already high (70-75) for the original recipe. I love me some hoppy beers, but this might be pushin' it!

i think i've brewed this recipe about 8 times now. each time, ive altered the hop timings and amounts a bit, but mainly keeping the same three varieties. for my tastes, this one wouldnt be the same with out amarillo. it just adds such distinct flavor and aroma. but your brew wil be just fine. just make sure you get some amarillo for the inevitable second batch.

hopsdirect.com was mentioned above. love those guys. great prices and great variety. if youre ever in the yakima area, look them up. we toured their farm while wine tasting last labor day and it was awesome.
