A More Crushable G'Knight
« on: October 01, 2019, 12:49:00 AM »
I need some help guys.  I'd want to make a crushable G'Knight by Oskar Blues.  I found a G'Knight clone recipe at BeerSmith, looks decent, and would like your expertise on how to tweak the recipe to be more crushable/easier drinking. 

link to recipe:  https://beersmithrecipes.com/viewrecipe/421227/oskar-blues-gknight-gordon

I have a 5 gal All-grain setup. The favorite batches I make are Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA clone variants but looking for more red.

Thanks!

For "easier drinking" one really obvious idea would be just to scale it down.  Cut all the ingredients by the same percentage to get the same balance but at a lower gravity you consider more sessionable.

that's what I need.  I've got a lot to learn so any obvious items are in in play here.   ;)

what do you guys think about this recipe?  maybe a little better with ingredients that are more likely to be at my homebrew shop?

If you have beersmith you can just use the gravity adjust tool to get the OG you desire and it will scale the grains for you.

Boom!  that'll work.  I actually do have BeerSmith and was messing around with that last night.

I guess I'll try and target an O.G. to match a lighter beer.

Thanks for all the help guys!
