AG#45 – Trashy Blonde

Posted on: December 28, 2010

This is an attempt at Brewdog’s Trashy Blonde and the recipe started life as Sara Carter’s (Scarer)
This will be my first experience of Pellet hops with the Motueka, I’m going to ferment it with Safale us-05 and Mashing at 68c (though I aimed for 69c, even after a pre-heat, empty and refill of the Mash tun I still lost almost 5c from 83c in the HLT), Mash for a minimum of 60mins.
I may dry hop this with 13g of Ahtanum in the fermenter… to be decided.

Trashy Blonde

Pale Malt – 70%
Caramalt – 10%
Munich Malt – 10%
Wheat Malt – 10%

Ahtanum Whole @ 60 mins – 8g (FWH)
Motueka (B Saaz) Pellet @ 60 mins – 8g (FWH)
Simcoe Whole @ 60 mins – 8g (FWH)
Motueka (B Saaz) Pellet 6.8 % 10 mins – 22g
Simcoe Whole @ 10 mins – 23g
Ahtanum Whole @ 10 mins – 22g
Simcoe Whole @ 0 mins – 16g (80c Steep for 20-30mins)
Ahtanum Whole @ 0 mins – 16g (80c Steep for 20-30mins)
Motueka (B Saaz) Pellet @ 0 mins – 16g (80c Steep for 20-30mins)

Final Volume: 23 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.041
Final Gravity: 1.010
Alcohol Content: 4% ABV
Total Liquor: 32.3 Litres
Mash Liquor: 9.5 Litres
Mash Efficiency: 80 %
Bitterness: 44 EBU

The Malts and liquor treatment salts:
Mash Tun wrapped up:
Todays Kiwi & Yank hops:
Leaf and pellet hops:
80c Steep hops going in:
Running to fermenter, the clearest wort I’ve made for a long while, the break material just dropped like a stone:
Looks like about 1040, Refractometer said 11.75 Brix which is about 1045 bit high but I’m not going to worry about it:

I’ll clean the copper tomorrow, there’s beer to be drunk….

After 7 days in the Fermenter I dry hopped this with:
15g Ahtanum
10g Motueka (Pellets)
10g Simcoe

*Bottled 10th Jan ’11 with 65g sugar
