Just kicked off the boil and first hop addition.


Decided on this hop schedule since my boil volume was a bit higher than normal with all the wort from sparging:
boil 60 mins 0.75 Cascade leaf 8.9
boil 60 mins 0.5 Cascade pellet 6.4
boil 30 mins 0.5 Cascade pellet 6.4
boil 15 mins 0.25 Cascade pellet 6.4
boil 5 mins 0.25 Cascade pellet 6.4

Missed my gravity by a few points, about 1.044...sample is tasty. Pitched a large amount of yeast from my volcanic starter. Hoping to put this into a keg within 10-12 days.

Brewed this beer Thanksgiving morning and just today moved it into a keg. I popped the lid on the fermenter and what do I see ? A dead bee floating on top. It must have landed in the wort at some point and I never saw it.

Maybe it will impart a slight honey flavor to the beer.

I fermented low, too...about 65, also. I'm actually still fermenting (letting it go a few extra days). I've read that Nottingham does well in that range. How many days did you let it ferment in primary?

Hmm...hopefully it fades.

Just for my own knowledge, you hit your final gravity? I'm being lazy about taking a gravity ready and it sounds like you and I brewed close to the same batch.

For some reason I haven't gotten around to brewing this one yet. Thanks again, Ed! I entered the recipe in BrewSmith and for an American Pale Ale my SRM came in at only 4.6. The style is 5.4 - 14. Now I'm no stickler for being exactly to style. But has anyone bothered to maybe use Caramel 20L instead of 10L?

8 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 76.2 %
2 lbs Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 2 19.0 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.8 %

I had the exact same thought after I entered it into Beersmith. But I am still doing extract boils so I am sure my color will be darker than that.

I added 1/4 pound of Melanoidin to get color within style guidlines. Turned out great! I am sure switching to 20L caramel would be fine too, I just happened to have extra Melanoidin on hand.
