Just bottled this last weekend. I altered this recipe to the following:
10 lbs Pale malt
2 lbs Vienna malt
12 oz. Crystal 20L malt
8.oz. Cara-Pils malt
3.5oz. Whole Centennial hops
2, 1oz pkg. American Ale II Wyeast 1272
Single Infusion, Light Body, Batch Sparge.
Mash in 16.56 qts @ 159.1F > 148F 75mins
Batch sparge w/4 steps (Drain mash tun, 1.41gal, 1.41gal, 1.41gal) @168F (10 min each step)
.5oz Centennial 1st wort 60.min
.5oz Centennial 1st boil 60.min
.5oz Centennial boil 45.min
.5oz Centennial boil 30.min
.5oz Centennial boil 15.min
.5oz Centennial flame out 0.min
Measured OG 1.065
Here is where I had to tweek it a bit. Pitched 1oz Wyeast 1272 in primary. After 4 days no active airlock, decided to pitch a 2nd Wyeast 1272 based on Recommendation on Wyeast forums on OG of 1.065 or higher, calling for a double pitch. on 5th day slow steady activity was seen for 3 more days. Moved to secondary on 8th day. Dry hopped with .5oz Centennial.
bottled on day 16 with measured FG 1.010
Gives me 7.3 abv
Color dead on with Bells 2ha aroma just incredible. Clarity is incredible already.
Will let you know in a few weeks how this turned out. It will also be entered into a local home brew contest.
