    Has anybody brewed this yet?

    I'm going to have a go at the weekend but struggling to decide on a water profile. Was going to go with Randy Mosher Ideal Pale Ca=110, Mg=18, Na=16, Cl=50, S04=275 but not sure about the sulfate being a bit high, anybody any thoughts?

    Cheers

    I home brewed this thursday before last. It went into keg last weekend and I'll tap it ... I don't know, probably by next weekend as I've people staying over. It is very pale and it has what I would consider a lot of oats. The sample I tried when kegging was very pleasant with a little hop burn present. My simcoe was very fresh and good, the centennial not so great. I also brewed 1,000L of an almost identical recipe last thursday, but with el dorado instead of simcoe. It'll go into cask either thursday or friday this week. It finished at 1.008.

    I forgot to order ‘extra’ pale malt when I brewed so ended up a bit darker than lightbulb and I bagged the dry hops (pellet) which I won’t be doing again, didn’t get anywhere near the same aroma I have from a similar amount of leaf hops in the past. Will just chuck them in loose next time.

    I just used Us05 so I’ve ended up with a pretty crisp pale ale but definitely lacking a bit of hop aroma. It’s also ended up quite bright so will maybe try the New England yeast next time to see if it gives is a bit of haze. Used a 1/2 tsp of Irish moss in the kettle for finings

    Went with a yellow dry water profile which I think i’d stick with if I brewed again.

    I’ll post a pic next time I open one

    It's from Hop & Barley magazine, although I cheekily screen captured it off their twitter feed a while ago.
