AG#34 – ORBY v1.2 (An AmeriZealand Pale Ale)

Posted on: August 7, 2010

ORBY v1.2 – A Tweak & Re-brew of this Over-Run By Yanks a Hoppy AmeriZealand Pale. The first version just didn’t last long enough, it was brilliant, so I thought it about time I made another version with MORE hops 😉 A bit different malt bill, I’m classing the Wheat Malt just like any other Pale malt as I have plenty of it, the Munich is there to add some maltiness that the Lager Malt will be lacking.

Fermentables:
Lager Malt – 2200g – 45%
Wheat Malt – 2200g – 45%
Munich Malt – 390g – 8%
Crystal Malt – 98g – 2%

Hops:
Pacific Gem @ 60 mins – 12g (First Wort Hop)
Nelson Sauvin @ 15 mins – 30g
Cascade @ 15 mins – 20g
Centennial @ 15 mins – 30g
Nelson Sauvin @ 0 mins – 46g (80c Steep for 30mins)
Cascade @ 0 mins – 30g (80c Steep for 30mins)
Centennial @ 0 mins – 30g (80c Steep for 30mins)

Final Volume: 23 Litres

Thought I’d check my pH for a change, near as damn it:

Avoiding the dreaded, Shock Horror!, Hot Side Aeration my arse bull… It actually stops the end of the pipe dangling in the wort while its heating up:

It actually managed to escape the copper just a little but some quick blowing and a bit of a stir saved it:

Believe me, this is 1052, 4 points above my target which I think is 12.8Brix www.fermsoft.com/gravbrix:

I managed a 93.7% Mash Efficiency, I think its time to change the settings in BeerEngine from 75% to 85% or more! 🙂

*Bottled 17th Aug ’10 with 80g of White Sugar primings. Tasting marvellous 😉

Thats sounds nice, going to have to give it a bash at some point.

[…] Wheat Mad beer, about half a kilo of Amarillo went into it, Brewdog-esque while fresh. AG #34 – ORBY v1.2 Strong Ales category winner at the 2010 NCB Comp in Skipton. Excellent beer if I do say so myself. […]
