I bought a grain mill back in August then set the wheels in motion to move house so my first brews with it will be starting at the end of this month (23rd). I’ve decided to do a series of SMaSH brews whilst I get used to my new efficiency etc. I’ve gone for a combination of hops/yeasts I’ve never used before and those I’ve never used on their own. The malt is Propino because it was only 5p more for a 25kg sack than generic pale malt on thehomebrewcompany. Each brew will be 5kg malt each, with probably the whole 100g of hops (split differs dependent on AA and style) - as follows. Any thoughts/opinions, or experiences with the ingredients I’ve never used before, are welcome: Belma / US05 - never had Belma before but liked the write up. US-05 should let it shine Hersbrucker / MJ54 - a pseudo lager. I’ve used Hersbrucker on its own but only with other Hallertau family hops EKG / Danstar ESB - a new yeast for me and I’ve read it’s good in English pale ales (only using it because Liberty Bell was out of stock). I’ve only ever used EKG with Fuggles before so keen to see how it does solo. Mosaic/BRY97 - I’ve used Mosaic a few times but always with Simcoe/Citra/FF; never used BRY before and keen to see how it compares to US05 and MJ44 Waimea / MJ 44 - heard a lot about NZ hops but never used them. 17% AA makes me think I should load up on late/flameout additions.MJ44 is my “go-to” American yeast.
