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) www.brewdog.com/trashy_blonde
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.

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….
