An infected Wee Heavy from Nov. Thieved a sample today and it's rounded out brilliantly!



I pitched a vial of Brett., a 1/2 lb of brown sugar, and an oz of EKG in the infection triage and now it's got a nicely rounded flavor, slightly tart, bit of funk, and still a nice malt backbone.  Gonna bottle this weekend.

It was probably a little early to try it out. I should have left it cold for more than 2 days. It's overly cloudy but not murky like those in that other thread. This was not my goal. Flavor is also a bit muddled, second batch of this recipe and it's different from the first . Only real difference was reducing bittering addition from 2 Oz FWH+2oz at 60 down to only 1oz at 60. I also moved all the late additions to a whirlpool. Hopefully it clears up. The FWH and whirlpool were all a blend of Amarillo, Centennial,  Citra, and Simcoe with Columbus @60

Weizen 3 days in the bottle a week ago. Very drinkable now and the head is better. Need to get a pic of it before it's all gone. Ten BU is a bit too bitter IMO.

Beer looks good, too.

10 IBU too much huh? Wow. I usually aim for about 13-15 IBU. I am getting in the hefe brewing mood. Might have to pick up some 3068 and run an open fermentation before it warms up too much.

I can't rave enough about this beer. I need to brew more of Ron Pattinson's recipes.

I have brewed a coupe of Ron's recipes, and those were very tasty.

I like that he has stuff that isn't just the usual "according to style" recipes. Those are much more up my alley than a basic ESB recipe similar to what I've brewed a bunch of times. This 3.5% IPA is a good example of that. I think my next one will be the Double Brown recipe posted here:

I was looking at that recipe also. What would you use for the invert sugar? Lyle's?

Ken, do you also drop your pH in the kettle to 5.2ish? And also with about a .5mL lactic/phophoric per pound of grist?

Ah, I see. Wonder if there's a benefit to doing that on IPA as well. But as someone said, ale yeast tends to drop the pH a bit more in fermentation than lager yeast, so I suppose it's not necessary.

That's what I use. From what I understand the brewers invert sugar used in the UK is a bit different, but Lyle's is easy enough for me to get my hands on and is a close enough substitute as far as I know.
