My main thought is as soon as some is ready you should bring some to Alexandria...

BUT.

It looks good to me though I would probably leave it in one vessel for the whole time and not move it to a secondary.

The temps look good, keep them in the lower half of the range so it does not develop any HefeWeisen Bubble Gum flavor

I also would question the Irish Moss; since this is used to cause the yeast to floculate and I like this beers to have the yeast.

So I would say take a peoce of paper and write down you plan... when brewing then write down what really happened.

This way if it comes out great you have the procedure.

Thanks DPB for your help. I've been reading about floculate and the fining agents to understand what role these play. Thanks for pointing it out and propable could drop it from the recipe.

I just thought of another question. In reference to the above recipe, for the grains they have 60 min listed beside them.

0.25 lbs 2.49 % Black (Patent) Malt 60 mins 1.025
0.25 lbs 2.49 % Chocolate Malt 60 mins 1.034
0.25 lbs 2.49 % Roasted Barley 60 mins 1.025
6.00 lbs 59.70 % Wheat Malt, Ger 60 mins 1.039


Would these be boiled the 60 min? I thought you steep the grains. I was going to steep these for 30 min after bring the pot to 165.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

The irish moss is actually to help proteins coagulate when boiling, and to help reduce chill haze. It doesn't effect the yeast at all.

For the grains in this recipe, this is the standard procedure :

- Place the crushed grains into a mesh bag.
- Add the grain bag to the water you will be using at about 100*F (this timing isn't so important).
- Heat water and remove grain bag between 168*F and 170*F. Typically this gives about 15-20 minutes for steeping depending on your heat source and water volume.
- Bring the wort to a boil then add the extract and start your timer.

Good luck and happy brewing!

Grains above 170* may give your beer a harsh tannic flavor, so try to get them out just before this.

Not true. Tannins are due to high pH, which is resulyed from too much water vs. grains. Those darker grains further assist to keep the pH low.
