Default AG#10 Proper Job

Ok so tommorrows brewday is a clone attempt for st austell brewerys "Proper Job" A powerfully hopped IPA style brew - I`ve been wanting to do this recipe since I started AG brewing last october. I`ve done some research for this including sampling lots of Proper Job on cask and bottled I even e-mailed the head brewer at st austell, he wouldn`t give me a hopping schedule but did say which hops to use and not to be shy with them!! He suggested around 40ibu so i`ll go a little higher to allow for my probably less efficient boil and brewing methods ( plus I like it hoppy and bitter ) The recipe below is pretty much copied from jim`s forum - so cheers for that

Proper Job

6kg Pale Malt - maris otter (from tuckers maltings in newton abbot, my local grain supply and also the supply for st austell brewery)

30gram chinook 90 mins
20gram cascade 10mins
25gram williamette 10mins
30gram williamette 5mins
30gram williamette 1min
30gram cascade 30min steep at flame out

expected OG:1059
expected FG:1015
IBU:53.0
SRM:6.1
expected ABV:5.9%

Can`t wait to start this tommorrow - grain weighed out (that was aquick job!) will be using US-O5 and some basic water treatment. Last of my pale malt grain so will have to get another bag for next weekends brew Full report tommorrow, cheers

Switched the boiler on just before 9am and it was up to temp before half past, lovely sunny morning even if it was a little fresh!!



I`ve managed to get hold of two old kettle leads (proper kettle one`s not 3amp pc leads!) also got some 50mm plastic pipe to fix on the boiler as shrouds in case of any overboils when I do double length brews - just need to silicone them on after the brewday


Set the tun up and filled with the strike water at around 72degrees c, doughed in and temp was a little under 66degrees so topped up with a half litre of boiling water 90mins later temp had held well again


Loads of lovely hops for this one smelt great



sparge and first runnings returned, all pale malt so very light colour,



hops in and boil on, its just finishing its 80degree steep and i`m gonna leave it to chill in the garden and pitch the yeast later!


great brewday, all went to plan - just about to strain the wort then going down to the river to feed the ducks with the missus and our little boy - may even get apint in

will do tony - if i only come close i`ll be happy It smelt great all through the boil so fingers crossed

Final gravity was 1056, I find US-O5 always ferments lower than the forum calc says so reckon i`ll easily hit the ABV
After i cleaned down i fitted the shrouds to the boiler,
will hopefully be attempting a 46litre brew soon - the only limitation is my mash tun which will hold around 8kg of grain so i`ll be looking to do a best bitter of around 4%.

If the citrus and grapefruit smells coming from the FV are anything to go by I can`t wait for this one

Botttled up tonight - 38 pint bottles, final gravity was 1004 - really low and suprised me - means the ABV is just under 7% hope it turns out OK and won`t take anything away from the hops

I`ve got a stinking cold so a taster told me nothing -

Gonna stick them away in the cupboard for a few weeks and then have a taster Stocks are good each of these boxes hold 20 or 19 pint bottles and i`ve around 200 pints of assorted beers, some turbo cider and ginger beer

oh yeah I keep the wine in a different cupboard



gotta love the spare room
