Beer Recipes / Sierra Nevada Celebration
« on: October 06, 2017, 09:50:06 PM »
This is the grain bill from the Celebration clone recipe in the July/August 2017 Zymurgy issue.

12 lb. (5.44 kg) UK pale malt
1 lb. (0.45 kg) 60° L crystal malt
8 oz. (227 g) 80° L crystal malt
8 oz. (227 g) dextrin malt
2 oz. (57 g) chocolate malt

I plan to bump the recipe up to 11 gallons and am thinking the following:

- I don't see any reason for dextrin malt in the recipe so I will leave it out. With the specialty grains and starting OG I think this beer will have plenty of mouthfeel.

- 2 lbs of crystal 60 and 1 lb of crystal 80 seem like WAY too much so I think I will go with 1.5 lbs of crystal 60 and stay at .5 lb of crystal 80

- I think I will stay with only 2 oz of chocolate malt for 11 gallons unless the color doesn't seem red enough and then I will cold steep the other 2 oz and strain into the boil

Thoughts ?

What is your hood? It looks like a big bowl I would use to put sauce on chicken wings  :o

I haven't been able to get any. Every time it just says it can't process my request. Started trying at 10:00am exactly.

Replace the Biscuit Malt with Special B. You will be glad you did. I agree with the others on no Dextrine and upping the roasted barley.

In my experience using pumpkin in the mash gives some color and mouthfeel, and makes for a bright orange mash  :o

This is what I do to all my bottle conditioned beers.

Or you could just look up my article in the SEP/OCT 2013 edition of Zymurgy  ;)

No health risks I am aware of besides higher alcohol level, but distillation is technically illegal without a license  :o

I measure .5 oz of whole peppercorns, then crushed them, and put them in at knockout with the finishing hops. There was a pleasant orangey/peppery aroma coming from the wort when I transferred it to the primary. I will report back in about a month with the results. Maybe I will bring a couple bottles to the NHC to share.

Ingredients / Hop much pepper?

I want to add some freshly ground black pepper to my next Saison. Grain bill is as follows:

For 10 gallons

1 lb malted Wheat
2 lbs Vienna malt
17 lbs Pilsner malt
1 lb beet sugar

So how much black pepper should I add for a subtle contribution? Planning on adding it at knockout.

I have brewed outside in the snow, rain, wind, -3 degrees, etc. But no more. Now I brew in  my nice comfy climate controlled brewery in the basement.  ;)

I am there now and just kegged my ESB I brewed 2 weeks ago when it was snowing and 20 degrees outside.

Brew on hardy brewers !

Well, I ended up using 2 lbs of uncooked rice (4 cups) then cooked it. I put that in with the the 2 lbs of flaked maze with the grain at 120 degrees for a protein rest. It seemed like a lot of rice compared to the flaked maze. The mash was cloudy as heck (I recirc the entire time) until about 30 minutes through the saccharification rest when it became crystal clear and Budweiser piss yellow. No stuck mash at all.

I hit my OG exactly (1.059 at 90% efficiency).  8)

Hopefully it will be ready in time for the NHC.
