brew morn-1st date dunkel
Hopefully this goes better than the one on Tuesday...
This is based on Schmidt's Dark which you can buy at Schmidt's Sausage Haus in Columbus. My wife and I went there on our first date, hence the name.
1/2lb of Amaranth soaked and then boiled for 30 minutes
1lb of dark toasted millet
both steeped in water at 145 for 45 minutes, strained out, sparged and then return to boil.
3lbs tapioca syrup
3lbs brown rice syrup
2lbs D180 syrup
with 15 minutes left at .5 tettnang
at zero at 1oz hallertau
Pitch WLP838 at 70 degrees
In one week add 4oz vodka infused with chocolate
OG: 1.078--phew, it worked this time!
Smells great and looks the way I'd hoped. The sample was pretty sweet up front with a nice finish. This could be really good.
