Hey all! I'm planning on brewing a brown this weekend and since Avery gives the recipe out on their website (and it's a tasty beer) I thought I'd give this one a try. I think I have the grain bill down, the percentages are close to what Avery recommends. Here's what I plan on doing:
2 Row Pale (US) - 8.8lbs - 81.48% - I've never used Maris Otter, any thoughts on doing all MO or a blend?
Crystal Malt 120L - 0.45lbs - 4.17% 33
Chocolate Malt (US) - 0.65lbs - 6.02%
Munich Malt 10L - 0.9lbs - 8.33%
I'm confused on the hops. Avery says:
60 min – Bullion (7.6% AA) – 0.13oz?
30 min – Sterling (5.1% AA) – 0.32oz
0 min – Sterling (5.1% AA) – 1.01 oz
When I plug these amounts into my brew sheet I don't come close to the 28IBU's they say this beer is. What am I missing?
I was thinking about doing:
Bullion (or a different bittering hop?) - .5 oz @ 60
Sterling .50oz @ 30min
Sterling .50 @ 0 min
Cascade (or something else?) 1oz @ 0 min.
This gets me around 25 IBU's and I would like a little more hop aroma so I added the cascade. You think this will be okay?
Also, for yeast it says California. Should I do WLP001 or can I get away with S-05 or something else?
Here's their website:
Any advice is appreciated!
