Title: First All Grain "Leaky Kettle"
Post by: neilrobinson on March 08, 2010, 05:20:35 PM
I just finished my first all grain recipe. I figured out the recipe myself, so I am not sure about the flavors. I kept it simple with an APA, and tried not to play with it too much. Basically wanted to get one under my belt.

Leaky Kettle Ale

6.00 lb Crisp Pale Ale Malt
2.00 lb Briess Caramel 10
2.00 lb Gambrinus Honey Malt
1.00 oz Cascade P.        (60 min) Hops 27.7 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade            (45 min) Hops 9.2 IBU
0.50 oz Citra                  (30 min) Hops 15.3 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial          (15 min) Hops 16.8 IBU
1.00 tsp Irish Moss         (Boil 10.0 min)   
1.50 tsp Gypsum             (Boil 10.0 min)
1 Pkgs Pacman Yeast from Rogue (Wyeast #Wyeast 1764)


I named it Leaky Kettle Ale, because my newly converted kettle that I build passed the test, but when it came time to brew I had a very small leak. Hence, Leaky Kettle Ale.

And here I was thinking Harry Potter

Congrats! Hope it went well.

A bit high on the 20% 10L- IMO for a 5 gallon recipe (assumption) it may be a tad sweeter than expected.

And for that matter, that's a lot of Honey Malt - with that stuff, a little goes a long way.  Might be more than just a "tad" sweeter

+1  I have an IPA that I used 8 oz of honey malt. It comes through like it's nobodies business.

Congrats on the All-Grain jump. You will not be sorry.

Congrats! I went all-grain 5 batches ago. I don't know what took me so long.

Well I have used the Honey Malt in a partial mash once before and the flavor did not carry over as much as I like. I just added more to the all grain thinking it would needed it to carry over. But the extract in the other might have taken away from the flavor. Thanks for the advice, I have made side notes in my journal to try and dial them back if it comes out too sweet.
