Just had a taste of my second batch of this the other night, this time a Partial Mash. I said it before and I'll say it again, one of the best, tastiest beers I've ever brewed.

I've entered it into a comp later this month, I'll post back here the results.

What was your partial mash recipe? I posted mine earlier in this thread:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f67/aber...ml#post1597367

and I will probably brew this again soon and would like to know how your PM recipe compares.

Here's mine:
-----------------
4 lbs Pale LME
2 lbs 2-row
1/2 lb. Carapils
1/2 lb.Crystal 20L
1/2 lb.Crystal 60L
1/2 lb.Crystal 80L
1/2 lb.Chocolate

1/2 oz. Goldings hops (60 min boil)
1/2 oz. Cascade (45 min boil)
1/2 oz. Goldings hops (15 min boil)
1 tsp. Irish Moss (15 min boil)
1/2 oz. Cascade hops (5 min boil)

White Labs WLP005
---------------

I know I kind of went off the path with the hops and the yeast, but it tastes surprisingly similar.

Mind you, it's only been about a week and a half in the bottle...

Default Fermintation and force carbing.


Hello, BierMuncher, I recently did my first AG brew using this recipe. You can view pictures of all the steps I performed here I have two questions about the brew after pitching the yeast.

1) How long should it ferment for? I used an iphone app called brewpal and according to that, I am suppose to let the brew ferment for two weeks (14 days). So far it has been 8days.

2) What kind of force carbonation did you perform on the brew? I am using 5 gal corny kegs.

cheers
-Chris

I too used this (with tiny mods) as my first AG brew yesterday. Hit the OG spot on but pitched the yeast a little too soon (90F). It's bubbling away now. Can't wait to taste it in a month. :-)

Why did you use three different types of fermentation?

I just got the ingrediants for Kornbread's 5.5 gal version. LHBS didn't have Target so I settled on Willamette. I'll use 1.5 oz of it since the AA% is 4.5%. I'm pretty pumped about it. I'll y'all know how it turns out. Thanks for the recipe!!

Hey, I have had my brew in primary for 8 days now, and was wondering when you did the Additional Fermentation: kegged and chilled to 37 degress for 5 days did you force carb your brew? and if you did, did you add any additional sugar or what not? Then after those 5 days did you just let it chill at 69-70 for 5 days still carbed in the keg?

Also this is the original gravity I had before I pitched the yeast.



and here is the gravity I measured today.


cheers

Brewed this up today. Pretty good brew day except for the boil over. AARRG! Need a bigger kettle.
OG ended up at 1.048. Bit higher than I thought I'd get but not a big deal I guess. Looking forward to this one. Color looks to be pretty close.
