This is adapted from BierMuncher's Sterling Gold. But I used Different hops and Wyeast 2112 California Lager. Came out super crisp and clean. Liked it a lot.
But want to up the ABV. So I pretty much just doubled the grain bill and its at 7.5%. What you are seeing here is the doubled recipe. Wyeast website says 2112 can handle up to 9%. I uppped the orange peel and corriander and black pepper a bit since there will be so much more grain. Should I still add more? Wonder if I should up the ibu now too?
here is the original Biermuncher recipe, which calls for S-05 but I thought I'd try it with the Wyeast 2112 and it came out awesome the first time...
Any thoughts at all, have at it. I'll be brewing on Saturday.
