Annual club experimental brew, this year its specialty grains.

Goal is to see what specialty grains do for the final product.
Here are the parameters we set:

2 row to 1.045-1.050
One specialty grain of your choosing
25 IBU Cascades at 60 minutes
1/2 oz Cascades at 15 minutes
Ferment with US-05 at 65 degrees


I'll be brewing with a lb of Victory.

Munich malt, 4 lbs. smoked with pear shavings, 4 lbs smoked with cherry shavings.  Will decide on one or the other or a blend.

Timothy Taylor Best Bitter from Wheeler & Protz 'Brew your own British Real Ale', with a slight mod.

OG 1.039, IBU 32

6.5 lb Maris Otter
.5 lb British Crystal 55L
1 oz Roasted Barley
.75 lb Demerara sugar

1.75 oz Styrian Golding 3.5% 90 min
1 oz fuggle 4% 90 min
.33 oz EKG 5% 15 min

mash @154F for 60 min, 1.1 qt / lb

I'm splitting this into 5 one-gallon fermenters, using wlp005, wy1318, wy1469, wy1968, and S04 to see which yeast gives me the best 'Brit' character.

and 2 g gypsum per gallon of water to get an RA of -10

no brewing, but I just hooked up my all cents IPA to the tap - I couldn't resist and poured a pint (had to push the sanitizer out of the lines)  - hoptastic - Larry Bell, eat your heart out!  now I feel guilty for starting to drink beer at 2pm on a saturday.  okay, maybe not that guilty...

just checked the gravity on my vienna - dropped 30 points in 6 days at 48df - gotta love slurry pitches!

nice looking porter recipe, ryan!

 smoked oatmeal stout, strike water heating as i type
 

 (up-date)  had a very good brew day, hit all my #'s on spot, everything went like clock-work, got everything washed-up
and had all small stuff air-drying on a towell spread on a table (outdoors). i go an draw me the first pint of the day,  i walk back
outside just as a Jay-bird landed on my false bottom, took a crap on it, then grabed my only stir-bar and flew away with it. :o  >:( ???    i may have invented a few new curse words

Thats a great book.
I've had mine for years.

Late start as I looked for a fermenter this AM...........didnt have one!
Had to rack an Impy Stout out of secondary (needed to be bottled up anyway)
Hope to be done in time to have the house cleaned up for when the wife gets home.

Are you serious?!?!  That is the craziest thing I have ever heard!  Hope that Jay doesn't land on anything with a magnetic pull!    ;)
