I had this posted up in another thread, but I thought I would post it here so the other thread didn't have to be dug through to find it.
This is my first try at converting a recipe and wanted to see what you all thought about it. It is a Brown Shugga clone that I am trying to make for my SWMBO for her birthday.
So here is the recipe I came up with as an extract version of this recipe
90 min boil with 45 min steeping of specialty grains.
8.25lbs Pale DME American
2 lbs Pale DME British
0.5 lbs Aromatic Malt
0.5 lbs Crystal 55L
0.5 lbs Piloncillo Shugar - added with 5 mins left in the boil
0.5 lbs Demerara Sugar - addes with 5 mins left in the boil
0.5 lbs Muscovado - added with 5 mins left in the boil
0.5 oz Centennial ???? ("first WH")
0.5 oz Eroica 90min
0.5 oz Centennial 60min
0.5 oz Cascade 15min
0.25oz Cascade 1min
0.25oz Chinook 1min
Yeast: WYeast 1056 American Ale/Chico
In the original recipe it says to add Centennial hops and under boil time it says "first WH" what does that mean?
Also this is my first time messing with recipes, so I am not 100% sure on how the hops transfer. My IBU in promash are 73.2 and in the original recipe it is 41.9, the OG is slightly off as well with 1.100 for the original recipe and mine is 1.110. Also seeing how this is an extract recipe, I am guessing I would order the Crytal 55L and the Aromatic Malt as milled grain, put them in a grain bag and steep them for 45min. at 150-160.
Any thoughts, tips, questions? I need to get this fermenting for SWMBO's birthday...
