    Tomorrows Brew

    Post  Stressed Dada on Fri Oct 22, 2010 9:14 pm

    Well d day is here, time to test my new boiler. So help needed for a recipe. My initial thoughts were:

    a, Tanglefoot
    b, Flowers IPA
    c, Old Hooky
    d, Hobgoblin

    I've never done the Flowers or the Hobgoblin, so they're pretty much top of the list.

    But if anyone has any other suggestions, then let me know.

    I'll be kicking off tomorrow morning.

    MMmmmmmm... Hobgoblin!

    How about Black Sheep Rigwelter? I've got an untried recipe on my blog that I made up after listening to an interview with the head brewer. I've not got round to trying it yet but if you do it you could let me know if it's worth it Very Happy

    It's not a million miles away from the GW recipe but uses alot more late hops and slightly different malt (i.e. no sugar).

    lol, I ended up going for a Beamish to 35 litres, which wasn't on the list.

    I don't think I'll end up with 35 litres though. Theres about 130g of hops in there, and I only ended up with 40 litres of wort after 2 sparges. I should have ended up with 45 litres. Time will tell. New equipment needs a test run to find the variables.

    Just been looking at your recipe there PG. Thats an interesting one, and when you say loaded late hops, boy do you mean it. 87g - 0 mins - 19 litre brew length. Wowzer. What a Face

    I like it though. I might try it, but use some flaked rice to bulk out a bit.

    Surely will. This is a second attempt at the Beamish. The first was an absolute beauty. I've upped the abv on this one though, the clone recipe is only 3.4, whereas this one has come out at 1.050 at 30ish litres. Going to use Windsor methinks.

    Hmmm... I'm brewing this today but before I do I had another listen to the interview and made a few corrections. I'm using a combination of CHallenger and Progress for the boil and still a big dose of Goldings at the end (maybe last couple of mins of the boil to emulate the time in the whirlpool).

    I've also upped the TW to 9% and reduced the Pale Chocolate malt a little to try and match the colour (mines slightly darker than the Black sheep one.).

    I'll post this up once I've brewed it.

    haha. Just realised from listening again that I've got the 70/30 rule on the boil / post boil hops the wrong way round! Going to do 30% Goldings in the last couple of mins of boil and steep for 30 mins post boil to try and emulate the whirlpool - a more realistic 18-20g for a 19l batch Embarassed

    This is looking alot more similar to the GW recipe now although using the Pale chocolate instead of standard, slightly more TW, no sugar and dropping the fuggles.

    The Final brew will be (for 19L):

    Pale MO Malt (5EBC) 82% 3940g
    Torrified Wheat (4EBC) 9% 430g
    Crystal Malt (130EBC) 5% 240g
    Pale Chocolate (550EBC) 4% 190g

    Challenger 90 Mins (7.6IBU) 22g
    Progress 90 Mins (5%) 22g
    Golding 3 mins (5.7%) 18g (steeped for 30mins before chiller).

    Final Volume 19Ltrs
    OG: 1.056
    Exp. FG: 1.014
    exp.ABV: 5.5%
    IBU: 35
    Colour: 63EBC

    Sorry to anyone that tried the original on the blog Laughing
