Default first brew with summit..

..hops, I've done a couple of single hop pales recently, building up some flavour profiles to help gain some knowledge. I'll be picking up my next grain bill tomorrow and plan to brew a BIAB single hop with these.


4700g Maris Otter
235g Caramalt
200g Torrified Wheat

Summit hop...
8g @60min
8g @ 45min
8g @15min
8g @5min
28g @flameout

40g dry hop

either US-05 or T-58, (as that's what I have in the fridge) undecided yet !

target 5.5%abv 47.75 IBU

Looks good. Summit is my favourite hop just now.
Particularly for dry hopping.
200g of wheat might be more than you need tho.
I only use 100g in an 80l batch.
All down to taste I suppose.

first time with wheat, I was aiming at 4% as recommended by a local brewer, 100g in 80 ltrs now that is a difference ! I'll see him tomorrow when I pick up my grains and have another word with him about it, cheers

I suppose it depends. I still get a good head and decent mouth feel. Its all about trial and error tho. See how you get on with 200g.

I think I'll ditch the Caramalt as I want to keep it a smash, but I'll add some dextrin and play around with the torrified wheat / dextrin amounts later on brewers friend, also I'll forget the 45min addition and go for 16g @ 15min for more flavour

47 ibu is quite high. What will it be at when you lose the 45 min addition?
