I have some leftover extract, hops, specialty and a couple of packets of dry. There is a snow storm brewing outside, so i figure I'll brew inside.
Here's the recipe I'm leaning towards for a session APA. (Laaglanders doesn't permit any other type.
I'm looking for a wider audience session beer so not too bitter (23IBU)...not to heavy (3.8%).
I'd love some feedback as I'm not sure if I'm going to destroy the world with my Hops schedule.
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 2.43 gal
Estimated OG: 1.048 SG
Estimated Color: 6.2 SRM
Estimated IBU: 22.8 IBU
Boil Time: 40Minutes (NOTE
: I'm shortening my brew time and hops boil to prevent the DME from caramelizing. I want a light colored beer.)
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (20.0 SRM)
(Steeped at 158 for 1 hour)
3.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM)
3.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (Laaglanders)
(DME Boiled for 40 minutes)
0.50 oz Northern Brewer Leaf [8.50%] (40 min)
1.00 oz Cascade Pellets [5.50%] (30 min)
0.50 oz Fuggles Pellets [4.50%] (10 min)
0.50 oz Hallertauer Leaf [4.00%] (10 min)
1 Pkgs SafAle American Ale (DCL Yeast #US-56)
I'd appreciate any tips or suggestions. THis batch will get kegged in my new Sanyo setup in a couple of weeks and will likely be my "show off" beer when I unveil.
