Hey Biermuncher, this looks like an AMAZING brew to have! My buddy plans on brewing recipes after a few tries with Mr. Beer... I'm gonna see if i can convince him to try this one out as his first!

I brewed this last month and just bottled it yesterday. It looked spot on and tasted (even if flat) spec_insertexplicit_tacular. I may have to crack one early just to taste but its lookin good! Thank you!

Is there any reason after fermentation with this not to throw it in the keg with gelatin and cool/carbonate for 10 days?
I'm looking at doing this recipe as my first AG... my second beer was your blonde ale (extract version)...

gravity reading of 1.025 after a month in primary with an OG at 1.033 sound a bit strange?

Yeah... comes out to 1.05% ABV if my calc is correct... ?? How did your fermentation go? Got krausen? Bubbles in airlock?

I scaled this recipe down for a 2 gallon test batch and my OG was 1.050 with an FG of 1.015 coming to right around 4.2% ABV.

Going to brew this recipe this weekend and have a couple questions for BM or anyone that can help me out... Pretty new to AG and wanted to get this right! I have read through all 21 pages of this topic, but wanted to find out a couple things:

1. Since I'm going to have to ferment in two fermentorsdue due to the size, do I pitch two packs of yeast or divide one?

2. How long is the mash time and how much water per pound of grain did you use?

3. Was also confused on boil time, 60 or 90 min? It says both but says to add hops at 60min so is that @ 60 min of a 90 min boil or at beginning of boil?

THANKS!

Can't wait! -Kevin

  1. If you are using dry yeast, hydrate in a cup of warm water for several hours (covered) and pour equal amounts into each fermenter. I routinely split one packed between two five gallon fermenters. If you are using liquid, make a starter and split that.
  2. 154 degrees for 60 minutes.
  3. If you can get a good rolling boil, 60 minutes is fine. I usually opt for a bit longer (not a strict rule), just because I’m not in any hurry.

BierMuncher, Thanks for the quick reply! Looks like this topic has been going on for some time and must taste great for people to keep coming back to it!

I can't seem to find the 1099 yeast strain her in town anywhere. The guy at my local shop recommended Safale S-04 as his choice for a replacement, what are your thoughts on it?

So I have some serious fermentation going on! Woo hoo! Had to change to a blow off tube... OG was 1.050. Looks and smells great! I can't for this one to be done!

Collected some of the Krausen to do a yeast starter sometime down the road!

Thanks for the recipe!
