1.100 wort mash
« on: September 15, 2010, 10:58:44 AM »
All (Fred?),
I am planning a Flying Dog, Double Dog Pale ale clone for a neighbor.  Beersmith says OG of 1.103, using WLP007 yeast, FG of 1.023.  I find DD cloying and syrupy, but that's just me.  Any suggestions on mash temp? Using 20lbs pale malt and 12 oz of Crystal 120.

It's not just you.  I too find most of beers that "big" to be a little toy cloying for my tastes.  I think, though, with that high of an FG, that's what you're gonna get.  You might want to try getting that FG down via mashing low and/or replacing some of your grist with sugar of some sort.

Because you want to really dry it out, I would mash at 148-149F for at least 2 hours.

Put this wort on the yeast cake of a smaller beer.  (To dry it out I want more than the normal amount of yeast to pitch)
