My goal is for a somewhat traditional Wee Heavy with intensely malty primary flavors and a subtle smokiness/earthiness in the background.
86.2% - British Pale
1.5% - Roasted Barley
12.3% - Rauch malt
.75oz Magnum 13.1%AA @ 60 minutes
1oz Willamette 4.7%AA @ 30 minutes
. - 1.095
I'm thinking I'll mash around 154F with 1.25qt/lb for 60 minutes. Then boiling down perhaps a third of the first runnings to a syrupy consistency (probably gonna take temp readings with a candy thermometer... don't know what stage I'll take it to.) Sparge to reach 8 gallons and boil for 120 minutes.
Ferment with WLP028 Edinburgh Ale @ 65F
Suggestions..? Questions..? Please let me know.
