A big thanks to wfr42 for judging and congrats to all the other entrants.

Think there is a trend here as I believe JFB won the IPA category in Oct 16 with a BIPA

I will put the recipe up in the next few days.
Well done!

Hi Guys

Here is the recipe for the Black APA.
This is the fourth iteration of this beer. The original was good but not quite black enough. So I increased the cold steep length for brew 2 and the amount of cold steep grains for brew 3. I found with both of these although black enough the roast malt harshness was a bit too much. So for this brew I substituted Midnight Wheat for the original Cara3 (I read somewhere that MW produced a less 'oily' beer than Cara3) in the mash and the late sparge addition and reverted to the original steep time and amount. This worked a treat and I got the level of blackness I wanted with the dark malts not becoming overpowering.

The final volume was 40 litres so you will need to adjust quantities for your brew length.

Mash tun (66c)
Pale Malt 6.5kg
Midnight Wheat - 250g
Wheat Malt - 1200g

Cold steep for 30 mins 100g of Cara 3 (added to boil)

100g of Midnight Wheat added to top of mash bed during sparging.

Boil
Challenger (pellet) - 15g - 60mins

Amarillo (pellet) 20g - 15mins
Citra (pellet) 20g - 15mins
Mosaic (pellet) - 20g - 15mins
Irish moss - 5g - 15mins

0mins and 20min steep and whirlpool
Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic - 40g each

Yeast - Safale US05

Dry hop (think was about 2 days)
Amarillo - 65g
Citra - 27g
Mosaic - 34g
(using up the leftovers here )
