Sweet! Thanks! Looks like I have some brewing to do when I get back in town. I have not done a dry stout yet, but I'm ready.

Did you use the same yeast for all of them? What do you see as the benefit of a 90 minute boil?

Thanks for recipes. I have the hops for the Vail Pale.

Thank you for the comments and the pointers.

The same yeast was used in all the beers.

NCYC 1187, if I remember correctly

Do you have an idea of which White Labs or Wyeast products this yeast may related to. A quick search seems to indicate that it is a British strain.

Wyeast 1187 Ringwood is the same strain.

I am not sure about the White Labs numbers.

This is the same yeast used by all the Wynkoop associated brew pubs.

It was first used in North America by Spinnakers in Victoria, BC

All the recipes are for a 90 min single infusion mash.

Try to hit 154 F for the Brown Ale.

158 F for the Stout and IPA

Add boiling water at the end of the mash to reach 175 F.

Recirculate the mash water for 15 min. to clear.

Send to kettle. Try to take 45 min to an hour to lauter to get max efficiency.

Add the first hops when you get a full, rolling boil.

I always used 90 min boil time to get the most bitterness out of the first hop addition and some extra evaporation to concentrate the wort.

I edited the GABF medals info. My memory was playing tricks on me.

The Vail Pale Ale recipe won three GOLDs at GABF during the 90's. I first brewed it because Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale wasn't available year 'round.

I called it Solstice Ale the first time I made it. I really made it just for me to drink at the pub. Imagine my shock when I not only won three Golds for it, but it actually beat out SNCA in 1994 at GABF. It also sold very well at the pub.

The LONG secondary with dry hops meant we were challenged to keep up with demand during ski season. During the mud seasons, it just meant more for the brewers to drink ;)
