MRB Castor Brown Ale
So, I'm still playing with Mr. Beer (MRB). Here's a recipe I'm playing with. I've noticed a bunch of people post and get some good responses as to what to add.
Forgive me, but I do not get the whole percentage blah blah blah...
1 can creamy brown UME (19 oz)
1/2 oz of Northern Brew Hops(NBH)
1/2 oz of fuggle hops
bag of booster
1 cup of table sugar
So I took the UME and boiled it for 90 minutes with the NBH in a hop sack the entire time. As the UME and 5 quarts of water heated I slowly added the booster and sugar till it came to a boil. After 60 min I removed the NBH and added another sack of the fuggle for the last 30. 15 mins in I readded the NBH.
I took a 11 oz packet of Safbrew T-58 Dry Ale Yeast and kick started it in 75 degree water and added it to the wort when it reached 80 degrees.
Now, the OG was 1.048, checked 1 week later it was at 1.012 and then 3 days later it's at 1.010. I still see some small bubbling in the fermenter (MBR fermenter keg)
It tastes ok as far as a brown ale.....With all this information..what would you do different or what UME or HME would you have added to make it better?
