Gonna do an attempt at a lodo APA this weekend with the Cleopatra hops I bought a few months back. Will preboil, use a 50 ppm meta dose, utilizing Brewtan as well to hopefully help to negate my copper IC's potential oxidation. Looking forward to the results.
Kegged this up today. It finished a couple points lower than normal with this recipe - no doubt mashing a tad lower than target from the no sparge was the factor since I misjudged my strike temp. Nonetheless, the sample was stellar. Really nice malt and hop character. The beer was very clear which I attribute mostly to using the Brewbrite in boil for the first time. No sulfur noted at all which is good, so definitely gonna stick with the 50ppm SMB for ales. Can't wait to sample this in a few days.
Great to hear Jon! I am really curious to hear how you think this "lodo" batch compares with your other brewtan beers you have recently brewed.
Gonna sample in a couple days (will be carbed then). Will post my thoughts.
