Shore is purty
« on: December 13, 2012, 07:14:24 PM »
Today's Lager went nicely hit all the numbers did a 90 min mash and 90 min boil...
It is already bright...9.5lbs of breiss pils with a handful each of bel aromatic, bel carafoam, wheat
and acid malt + .5 lb of victory....add some oxygen 53 degrees and pitch a LOT of re-hydrated s-189 thank you boulderbrewer.

Edit: Hops were 90 min addition of Sterling whole and 20 min addition of Belma

all winter in the cold garage and this will be a joy come early spring....

 :P

TYVM!  I put this up mostly to show the 90 min boil with the pils malt.
That is the way to go for sure.  I wanted to drink the unfermented wert,
that is how purty the liquid was....Taste was cloying sweet so I did not
manage to consume that.

Very nice!

Have you used the Belma before this...if so, how do you like them?

Ron,
I just racked an ESB with only Belma hops in the mix yesterday.  I got a glass of the
green unaged beer and sampled the beer.  I do like them.  There was this neat citrus
hint of tangerene/orange/lemony note on the back of the tongue.....at about 40 IBU.
Great hop to balance maltiness....not so much a hop to "curl your hair".

They are NOT jump out in your face IPA material at that level. I suppose you could
ramp up the quantity but you would be better served with the super alphas for big hoppiness
if that is your thing.
