This might be the best beer I've brewed yet and I'm hoping to place or do 40+ in the Commander SAAZ comp with this one. I'll post results when I get them.
83% Efficiency for 5.25 gallons.
SRM: 23.5 calculated, actual is probably around 19-20.
13# 85.4% Maris Otter
12oz 4.9% C60
5oz 2% Roasted Barley
2.5oz 1% Black Patent
1# 6.6% Dark Brown Sugar (see notes)
Williamette to 35 IBUs, single 60min addition.
Mash at 156-158 for one hour and sparge to collect about 7.5 gallons.
Collect one gallon of FIRST RUNNINGS and boil separately with brown sugar until reduced by 1/3-1/2 or the bubbles start stacking on each other and add back to kettle preboil.
Ferment with 1728 Scottish Ale at 60-62 for 10 days, then keg or prime to about 2.1 volumes.
Drink carefully, we call it "Darkside Duck" because its dark and you'll wanna duck before it knocks you on your ass!!
