I have Houston water so I had to dilute with RO due to lots of iron in my city water. I ended up using 75% RO 25% filtered city water (filtered through fridge). Whatever your normal pale water is should be fine, I just adjusted with some gypsum in my water to bring out my hop flavor and bitterness.
I ended up with ~6-6.5 gallons pre boil and had 5 gallons in the fermenter after cooling. Adjust for your system and boil off rate. Also I just pitched the wyeast packet. Fermented at 70 in a swamp cooler...hey it's Houston summers...all in all fermented out clean in 4-5 days
Second round in the Dixie cup in Houston and scored a 32. I missed my mash temp while brewing, 151 instead of 154. Enjoy.
It was noticeably citrusy, however the simcoe in the blend tones it down a bit I think. The aroma comes through really strong. I dry hopped with an ounce of falconers for a week before kegging to further enhance the aroma.
In your recipe you may only get hop flavor from your 30 minute cascade addition. I'm a big fan of layering and hop bursting at the end of boil with small additions more frequently. To each his own though.
allright just brewed this with my grain bill and your hop schedule. i also added 1 oz cascade mash hop. ill post how it turns out. it should be a bit hoppier. my cascades are 6.4 AA and my falcons flight is 10.5 AA
I was thinking of fwh next time I brew, let me know how yours ends up. Also, I forgot it when I posted the recipe but I dry hopped wit 1 oz of falconers 7 days before kegging. Not sure if you were planning on doing that?
I have everything coming tomorrow for a go at Tiger Bait this weekend. Found the Falconer's Flight at Austin Homebrew for anyone interested. Anyway, I have a half pound of flaked wheat laying around. I was thinking of adding 4 oz for head retention. Thoughts?
