I just tasted my Summer Breeze Ale. It’s 3 days conditioned and already exciting me so I’ve made a rash decision to post the recipe.

If you try it you MUST like hoppy beer.

4.5Kg Vienna malt
250g Caramalt (EBC between 30 and 80)
125g Torrified wheat (for head retention)
Mash for 75 mins at 150F
500g sugar
Bring wort to the boil and add:
10g Citra pellets (60 min)
10g Galaxy pellets (60 min)
40g Citra pellets (15 min)
40g Galaxy pellets (15 min)
Protofloc tablet (15 min)
24 litres into FV at SG=1046
20g Liberty Bell yeast, fermented at 22C
Aroma hops added on day 3. These are dried hop flowers just thrown into FV as dry hops:
50g Citra flowers
50g Galaxy flowers
Siphoned into keg on day 9, SG = 1006

Beautiful summer(?) ale at 5.2%

I force carbonate in a King Keg with an 8g CO2 injection and the beer is ready 1-2 weeks later.

It rarely lasts long, friends and neighbours go home with 4-pint carry outs. I don’t buy bigger Jerry cans! Luckily it takes no time at all to brew :beer1:
