I like oats and corn in certain beers.

Re-tasted a bottle of the corn malt used with expectations to dump.
It's actually not bad, not great, but not bad.  Either it needed a little time
or something funky was in the prior bottle.  Anyway not dumping, another
month it will probably change for the better.

Cheers

I didn't find malted corn to be at all like the flaked maize most commonly used.

Speaking of malted corn- even though it's not quite the weekend, I'm brewing an Hoppy American Lager (aka cold ipa?) with:
 35% two-row pale malt
45% Pils malt
20% corn malt
1/2 lb sugar

~54 IBU of homegrown Chinook & Cascade
Diamond lager slurry; ferment at 50 F
~ 1.061 OG

So you don't add any kettle hops?

Magnum hops were added in the kettle. The beer is now in the fermenter. :)

I must have read that wrong. Thought you were just adding hops to the fermenter only, bypassing kettle additions.

I made a kölsch yesterday, as an amalgamation of two successful recipes from past years.


95% Viking Pilsner Zero malt
5% Weyermann Munich I malt
20 IBU Edelweiss hop blend, 30 minute boil
4 IBU Edelweiss hop blend, 5 minute boil

BruTanB and Whirlfloc at 10 minutes and 5 minutes, respectively
Köln Kölsch-style ale yeast, Lallemand
fermenting at 64 degrees
s.g. 1.046, f.g. 1.010, 24 IBU, 4 SRM, 4.7% abv


This batch is called "Snowdrop Kölsch," in honor of the highly unusual snowfall we got at low elevations in eastern Los Angeles County.

First batch of the new year - it's been a hectic month! I'm brewing a Honey Lavender Belgian Blonde.
Well, how does it taste?



*Disclaimer*: Any comment I add is simply the way I brew beer. I am not paid or sponsored by anyone. There are certainly other ways that can be equally effective which other brewers may contribute. This is what I’ve found that works for me using my equipment and processes so I offer this for your consideration. YMMV

no, so my source uses simpsons roast barley and the times ive used it it has this smokey, wild(?), aggressive taste i dont like. it just hasnt fit the dry stout i want and i dont use it. i may give it a try again at some point though.
