Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Notty   
Yeast Starter: None   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: None   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.0   
Original Gravity: 1.058   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 41.5   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 4   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 19 @ 63   
Additional Fermentation: Cold Crash 3 days near freezing. 34F   
Tasting Notes: Great simcoe "catiness" Nice bodied, smooth bitterness, for me a sessionable beer.   

This is essentially EdWort's Haus Pale Ale with a different hop schedule and ferment temp. (and named for our 3 doxies)


Grain Bill:
8 lbs. 2-Row Pale Malt
2 lbs. Vienna Malt
0.5 lb. Crystal 10L Malt



Single Infusion mash for 60 minutes at 152 degrees.

Dough-in with 4 gallons of water to reach a mash temp of 152F. After 60 minutes. Have another 4 gallons of 175 degree water ready for the sparge. You should then get 6.5-7 gallons to your kettle for the boil. Boil for 60 minutes.

This was done with late addition hops "AKA" hop bursting.

Hop Schedule:

boil 15 mins 1.0 Cascade pellet 7.0
boil 15 mins 0.5 Citra pellet 13.4
boil 5 mins 0.25 Cascade pellet 5.4
boil 5 mins 1.0 Cascade pellet 7.0
boil 5 mins 0.6 Citra pellet 13.4
dry hop 5 days 0.5 Cascade leaf 5.5
dry hop 5 days 0.5 Citra leaf 13.7
dry hop 5 days 1.0 Simcoe leaf 13.0

1 Whirfloc Tab was added at 15 minutes.

I used 4 gallons of RO water and 4 gallons of tap water with a little K-meta added to get rid of chloramines.

1Tbsp of 5.2 was dissolved in a little water then added to MLT before strike water is poured in. Strike water is poured when it reaches the proper temp.
Then dough in and mash for 60 mins, monitoring and adjusting temp to stay on or very close to 152F. Then batch sparge. Making sure to vorlauf on both runnings before transferring to kettle.

Chill to 68. Check OG. Transfer to fermentation vessel and aerate. Pitch yeast and ferment in the low 60's for 14 days. Ensure fermentation is done. Dry hop and let sit for another 5 days. Cold crash at 34 degrees or near freezing for 3 days then keg.

I am a big believer in the late hopping to achieve IBUs and flavor, plus aroma profiles. This is the smoothest bitterness beer I have made to date. I would consider it the perfect bitterness profile to me. All I gotta say is "hop burps". Yum!

My next go around I might make the caramel amber ale recipe with this hop schedule. Should be awesome!

I imagine it is not very bitter, mostly a fresh hop aroma and flavor.

It is bitter enough. It clocks in at 40.5. The large amount of late hops make up for the typical 60 minute bittering addition.

Check out this article. It has changed the way I will brew in the future. http://www.google.com/m/url?ei=e2CgT...cF9XAXizrfN1bA

I am going to try this, I have a decent hop stash, and regardless how I hop/dryhop I haven't been able to get the smooth and flavorful hoppieness I'm looking for. I will report back.
