- 9.8lbs 2 Row Pale Malt
- 1.7lbs Caramel 10
- 0.6oz Centennial boiled 60 minutes
- 0.5oz Amarillo boiled 15 minutes
- 0.5oz Cascade boiled 1 minute
- Whatever yeast you want
I will be perfectly honest you, I used the "Beer Generator" option at Beertools.com to generate this recipe, and according to the report that was output, the beer should be as follows in terms of IBUs, colour and gravity:
- OG - 1.058
- IBU - 37.5
- SRM - 6.98
- ABV - 5.5 - 6%
For those doing an extract based recipe, I found a formula for converting from base malt to dry malt extract which multiplies the weight of base malt by 0.6 - which gave a result of 5.9lbs. Those using liquid malt extract, multiply by 0.8, making it necessary to use 7.8lbs of extract.
If, like me, you brew less than 5 gallons at a time, re-scale the recipe as necessary, and I would recommend using the lightest possible extract, hence I will be buying Munton's Extra Light instead of the usual light I use.
The timeline, as I previously suggested, is as follows:
- Feb 12/13 - brew the beer
- Feb 26/27 - bottle the beer
- Mar 19/20 - try the beer
- Mar 21 - write about the beer
