Ingredients / Re: Malt base for an orange hue
« on: April 06, 2017, 05:59:47 PM »
Assuming you are brewing 5 gallon batches, try adding a pound of caravienne to your base malt mix.

My last hoppy lager was predominantly pilsner with some munich, vienna, and a tad of caravienne. It was pretty on the border of gold/orange and some more caravienne would have gotten it there for sure...

I know color calculations are just estimates but what would be a recommended SRM? 6-7?

Nothing gets me pumped up on brew day like Queens of the Stone Age.

Good one

Alright well as strange as it may sound to some, I went with:
56% Pilsner
20% Munich 6L
20% Red Wheat
4% table sugar

Ended up right at 1.062

Bittered to 62 IBUs with Nugget and Bravo then added 4 oz hop hash at flameout. Will get another 4 oz hop hash for dry hop.
Where did you get the hop hash from? And how's it work?

Yakima Valley hops packaged it when pelletizing last years harvest and sold it in 4 oz bags. From what I understand it is just compressed hop powder taken off of the machines. I don't really know the details but I can tell you that the aroma from the fermenter is amazing right now. I have no idea what varieties were in my hop hash but it definitely seems to include some new school, super tropical, fruity varieties. The aroma of the hash itself was very interesting and had almost a sweet berry characteristic. I am not that into a lot of the newer varieties but this should turn out good I think.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Sierra Nevada German IPA
« on: March 31, 2017, 03:23:42 AM »
Anyone have any ingredient information on this beer from the 4 way IPA mix pack? Other than torpedo the other two offerings are disappointing but I really like the German ipa. On their site they don't provide ingredient information. If the hops are all German I assume there is some mandarina going on. Very nice floral, spicy, and orange citrusy hop character.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Cali V

I have been wanting to try this yeast on a blonde ale. US05 finishes to clean for me so I tried an English yeast which had too much character.
I just tried WLP041 in a British Golden Ale (almost a Blonde). It was awesome. Pretty fruity, but, the fruit flavors blended well with Amarillo hops. Nice malty full bodied beer, too.

Really, I think I missed the style a bit, but, the beer was great.

Yeah mine probably isn't hoppy enough for a golden ale but definitely has the malt and yeast character of one.

I think 85/15 would work fine with no sugar, unless you're making IIPA. Finishing at around 1.010 (152F/60 mins with this grist) with enough sulfate content to balance the maltiness would give you a nice, fairly dry beer IMO.

Thanks Jon. That is right about where I want it to finish but I didn't think it could get there with an American ale yeast if starting around 1.064. That would be about 85% attenuation so I thought some sugar might help.

Any thoughts on 6l or 9l?

Well, 9L has a fuller,more lingering maltiness, as a rule. And nothing stopping you from bumping mash temp down a couple degrees for that matter. I can usually hit that FG with my IPA grain bill (1.064 OG) which only uses 5 oz crystal with the 2 row. OTOH I don't see anything wrong with the sugar either. I just think you can get what you're after with a low FG and water chemistry. Ehh, it's just beer - it'll be good regardless!

Cool. Thanks again. Looks like I am actually shooting for an og of 1.062 so it won't be as difficult to get that low. I will figure something out...

I have been brewing with my standard IPA grain bill of 60% briess 2-row and 40% weyerman light Munich ~7srm for a bunch of single hop beers lately, making my way through all of these new American/aus/nz/German varietals....and I like it a bunch

The op grain bill looks pretty good to me

Thanks for the point of reference. Not overly malty I take it?

Thanks. I am very familiar with what Munich brings to the table but like you said 20% could be too much. I will consider lowering the amount or possibly going with 6L instead.

Looking do a reasonably dry IPA but still want enough malt character to support the hops. I have a sack of pilsner malt that I will be using for most of the base. I assume crystal malt will not be necessary for my goals.

Right now I am looking at:
76% pilsner
20% munich 9L
4% table sugar

Any thoughts? I don't normally brew IPA...

I currently have a 1:1:1 Equinox/Comet/Centennial IPL on tap. I love citrusy hops and this combo somehow ended up having very strong orange character that I am in love with. Equinox is just amazing in my opinion and will become a permanent part of my APA/IPA if I can ever settle on one recipe...
