Okay so I was hoping that all you pro's would take a peek at the following recipe. I'm basing it off of another recipe I got on here (thanks for posting Conroe
) that was from Radical Brewing
. I'm thinking of adding sanitized cranberries to the fermenter instead of in the boil and then again in the secondary for more cranberry flavor. Anyway here's the recipe.
5 Gallons 90 minute boil
Partial Boil as I cannot get 5 gallons up to a boil on my stove
Mash at 153 for 60 min
Sparge at 170 for 10 min
4 lbs Rahr Pilsner
3 lbs Six-Row
Maybe another grain?
2 bags frozen whole cranberries added to fermenter
.75 oz saaz hops at 90 min
1/2 oz saaz hops at 10 min
I've replaced the .75 Mt. Rainier hops for more saaz as, well, I like them and I wanted more of the cranberry to come through than the hops. Maybe something fruitier? I'm still learning the difference between the hops so maybe cascade or wilamette?
I'm stuck on yeast. The recipe called for US-05 and that seems to be a pretty round about yeast. I currently have my popcorn cream ale fermeting so I have no idea what it currently tastes like. The wort was delicious before the hops were added so I'm not concerned. Anyway what do you all think?
