11 days ago i brewed my first IPA with Simcoe , i found it 3 weeks ago in San Diego so i used Magnum for bittering and leave it for flavor and aromas, i noticed that the grains there was not properly crushed but i just ignored it in the moment.
at 73% for efficiency i was supposed to be at 1.070 and end it with SG 1.059!! i only use 2 row and crystal 20 L becouse i was looking for a no robust body and pale wort to be acoording with the citrusy... mashed for 152F for 60 min and boil it for 90 min
is the first time i was very low in efficiency and i use WLP001 with starter, pitch it and after a late 24 hours wait it start bubbling after i swirl the fermentor a little, dont know why actually, the temp was in 65F and as usual was well aireated
yesterday on day 10 after brewing date, i checked and i got a 1.004, The yeast in the lid had a stange aroma, just like rubber band something like that...Very very clear beer and smell very similar of Pinot Grigio wine, that one from Costco it seems reasonable becouse the citrus aroma, so i put in 2 oz of Simcoe and let it for another 5 days maybe will go better...
Next time i'll be shure to get a double grind in the mill!! im a little worried about those aromas, tastes good but,.. mmm i don't know what so expect
