I posted this here, because I'm not sure if this actually a neat idea, or if it's beer-induced faux-inspiration.

I'm thinking of making my Pale Ale recipe into "1056" ale.

The SG will be 1.056
I'll make 10 gallons of 56 IBU beer.
Yeast will (of course) be WYeast 1056.

I'm trying to think of more ways to incorporate "1056" into it. This is totally for the purposes of pleasing my inner homebrew nerd.



BTW, 1056 is by far the yeast I use the most. Maybe this is a tribute....

EDIT: Crap! I should brew 10.56 gallons!

Sorry....

My intent was to post the concept of this recipe. I have not fully formulated it, it was just a random DRUNKEN RAMBLING.

My apologies for not clarifying that in the OP.

When and if I actually brew this, there will be a full recipe.

Do your hop additions at 10 minutes, 5 minutes and 6 minutes.

Very interesting idea! I couldn't come up with any other 1056 references.

That's probably a light IPA, not a pale ale. You'll want to mash high, or get plenty crystal malt in there to help balance the hops with the smallish malt bill. That's what I'd do, anyway.

You might look into famous people born/died in year 1056, or perhaps any famous events that year.

Mash at 156 (the zero is hidden)

Also, as referenced above, hop additions could be at 56 minutes and at 10 minutes...ok, maybe that's a little too dyslexic...

I like this idea! I already do all my additions in the last ten minutes for the base recipe. That's great!

Your O.G should be 1.056.

Whoops... you already thought of that. Carry on.
