Low gravity ideas....
« on: May 21, 2012, 10:51:32 AM »
Brewing tonight, but again this weekend and I don't have anything planned for that one. Thinking low abv, english or maybe something west coast and really hoppy. I've got a lot of simcoe, amarillo and citra as well as some zythos laying around. Did Kelsey McNairs session ale a while back and loved that.


edit: should have posted this in recipes, my bad

Have you seen the micro-IPA recipe at the mad fermentationist? He used Nelson, IIRC, but I'm sure it'd work with other hops as well.

I just did a no-sparge, low-gravity IPA a few weeks ago (~1.030). Quick, easy, and satisfying!

Basically used "Pliny the Toddler" malt bill with my normal IPA (~1.065) hop schedule. I don't think I'm going back to the bigger IPA...

I LOVE how it showcased hops with a clean, dry beer. A touch of grainy, biscuity malt flavor from high quality MO/pils keeps things interesting. Bitterness is sharp but clean - I adjusted to ~ 250 ppm SO4 and used all FWH and late hops to bitter.

Checking that out, thanks.

Sounds great. Do you mind posting the recipe?
