Saccharification Add 17.77 gal of water at 154.4 F 147.9 F 90 min
Mash Out Heat to 168.0 F over 7 min 168.0 F 10 min
Sparge Step: If steeping, remove grains, and prepare to boil wort
Mash Notes: Brew in a bag method where the full boil volume is mashed within the boil vessel and then the grains are withdrawn at the end of the mash. No active sparging is required. This is a light body beer profile.

Carbonation and Storage

Keg/Bottling Temperature: 45.0 F Age for: 30.00 days
Fermentation: Ale, Two Stage Storage Temperature: 65.0 F

Notes

As usual with 10 gal batch in 15 gal BIAB kettle, I will start with less water (10.0 gal), then at end of mash bring up to pre-boil volume of 14.5 gal by "drench sparging" or "rinsing" the pulled bag as it sits on a strainer on top of kettle. May have to add water toward end of boil to get 12.5 gal at end of boil for 11 gal of wort into 2 transport vessels. Will put the 4 oz of Kent Goldings in when starting whirpool.

To simplify this recipe for brewing at the PUBS Brew Camp, all amounts were rounded to whole pounds or ounces. Victory malt and crystal hop were eliminated. Since LBS did not carry flaked rye, we will use 3 lbs of all rye malt instead of half and half rye malt and flaked rye. Water was charcoal filtered camp spigot.

For transport from campground to home fermenter, we will put wort into 2 - five gallon corney kegs on Saturday (in cooler with ice, and without pitching yeast), then transfer to fermenting carboys at home on Sunday, oxygenate and pitch yeast, and put in 64 degree fermenter. Diacetal rest on days 3-9 at 3 degrees a day from 64 to 73 degrees and back. Into secondary with Amarillo dry hop on day 8.

On-site O.G. with glass hydrometer said 1.064, but Tilt at home said 1.057.

Tasted at PUBS meeting 8/16/18. Good comments. Would brew again. Maybe up the caramel crystal to 1 lb (suggested by Mike Moore).

Fermentation: Ale, Two Stage Storage Temperature: 65.0 F

Notes

- Trying for OG of ~ 1.050, FG of 1.010, IBUs ~12, medium body (wheat gives higher mouthfeel)
- Added some calcium chloride to mash water. Maybe add a bit more to boil kettle.
- pH of 5.0 - 5.5 (usually around 5.2)
- Grain bill is approximately 60% 2-row barley, 40% wheat
- Continental 2 row pilsner also works, but may be too light in color.
- Wheat in grain bill is 30% malted, and 10% unmalted (flaked)
- Rice hulls help lautering (from unmalted wheat becoming gummy)
- Mash at 153 F for 60 minutes (start lower, and let it creep up to target)
- Hops are not prominent (only enough to balance malt sweetness)
- Hop used is Mandarina Bavaria, added at 60 minutes and 30 minutes
- Fly sparging used at Monk’s (avoid batch sparging)
- A cloudy beer, so no point in fining agents
- Added bitter orange peel and coriander 5 minutes before end of boil.
- No candy sugar
- Boil is 60 minutes
- Whirlpool 20 minutes
- Yeast is WLP 550 (produces nice blend of phenolics – when under 70 F and esters – when over 70 F)
- Pitch correct amount of yeast (flavor is enhanced by slightly stressed yeast. Overpitching can result in bland beer)
- Start fermentation cool (65 F) for a day, then let rise slowly to around 72 F (can go as high as 77 F)
- Fermentation can be basically DONE in just a couple days
- Carbonation is about 2.5 volumes (going higher risks pouring a lot of foam)
- Don’t need to age this beer (Monk’s has served in 7-9 days!)

Fermentation: Ale, Two Stage Taste Rating(out of 50): 30.0
Taste Notes: Big hop aroma and flavor. Hop complexity is great from the combination of 7-c’s (citrus) and the tropical notes of the mosaic. There’s a sweetness in this beer which I believe is caused by the combination of the high level of Vienna malt and hop flavor (Glycolcides?). Bitterness is spot-on in my opinion.

Notes

Notes from 2nd batch:
Was going to add 4 lbs. of Vienna, but only had 2.8 lbs. in stock. Made up the difference with Pale Ale malt.



Notes from 1st batch:
Hop aroma and flavor may be a bit big for style. I think I’ll try increasing the Mosaic percentage a bit the dry hop, but overall reduce the amount of dry hop. May reduce the Vienna next go around.
