Last night I brewed a variation of Logans American Brown Ale;
here are my changes.
1.8 kg Sorghum Syrup (15 min)
1 kg Buckwheat, roasted till dark brown
25 g Fuggles, pellet 7.7% (60 min)
19g East Kent Goldings, pellet 6.5% (15 min)
1 tsp Irish Moss (10 min)
500g Blackstrap Molasses
250g Dark Candi Sugar (82 SRM)
400g Rice Syrup
1 pkg SafAle English Ale (S-04) Pitched dry
I steeped the grains at 155-F for 30 min. then added the hops, molasses, candi sugar and rice syrup.
The buckwheat wasn't as dark as I would have liked, as my wife couldn't handle the smell of it roasting and I had to stop it early. I didn't have any millet ready so just used buckwheat.
I could only find rice syrup not Brown Rice Syrup but figured I'd try it anyway.
In my previous brews I have used 2.8kg of sorghum syrup but decided to drop it down this time to see if the flavour changes.
it weas bubbling away nicely this morning.
