#19 Tongue In Yer' Ear (any dog owners out there might get this name...) golden ale... Brewed this one for 2 reasons:- 1) To give my wife something paler to drink. 2) To see if the onion I could taste in the POTUS-45 was the Jester hops, or just thanks to using too much of them, or thanks to having to syphon manually through a sieve... Pretty sure the metallic twang in the POTUS was from the brand new stainless steel parts in the boiler probably, as was the first brew I ever did after building it. Oh, and I binned the Magnum hops I had. Brewed 2 beers with them, both tasted funky.... So, yeah, I'm no good at simple recipes these days... Targets:- Based on a brew house efficiency of 75% (for once I under-shot! I couldn't be bothered messing about with RO water and salts, so I used tap water and lactic acid.... Ended up with 69.5% brew house efficiency... Oh, and the power tripped 20 minutes before the end of the boil, so had to faff around trying to finish my boil, which didn't help any...). OG: 1.043 (actual 1.040). Colour: 8.9 EBC. Bitterness: 38.4 IBUs (who knows after all of the faffing around...). Batch size: 14 Litres (Yay! A target I hit! lol). Mash: BIAB full volume. 90 minutes @ 67 degrees C. Mash out for 15 minutes at 75.6 degrees C (rising over 25 minutes). 1200g Minch Hook Head Irish Pale Malt 4.2 EBC 700g Munich Malt 10.8 EBC 400g Crips Pale Wheat Malt 3.5 EBC 200g Cara-Pils 3.9 EBC 100g Golden naked oats 18 EBC Boil 70 minutes @ 70 minutes 4g Admiral hop pellets 14.1% AA @ 15 minutes 35g Jester whole hops 7.76% AA @ 10 minutes 1/4 Protafloc @ 5 minutes 1 tspn Tronozymol yeast nutrient Pitched at 28 degrees C (lower than usual ....) with some Sigmund's Voss Kveik yeast. Not wrapping it with blankets this time either, I'm just letting it ride, see how it does.
