Ta Moko II – A re-brew with minor tweaks for hop Alphas and added 5% Flaked Oats. The last version of this beer is here. If this beer is as good as the last brew it won’t last long and is as good a reason as any to think about investing in a bigger copper boiler / 50 Litre Keg-boiler πŸ˜‰

Wheat Malt – 8%
Flaked Oats – 5%

Malts are, Lager, Carapils, Wheat, CaraMunich III, and Flaked Oats, I put the Gypsum in the mash and the other salts went in the boil:
Hops from @TheMaltMiller:
Fairly reserved on the hopping, all but 15g of FWH are in the last 15mins of the boil:
Filling the Mash Tun with hot Liquor, I use about 83Β°c and leave it to pre-heat the tun allowing it to cool down to my Strike Temperature before mashing in, I mashed in at 74Β°c:
Full copper heating with the FWH:
Half a protafloc tablet into a 23L brew @ 5mins left:
The 50g of 80Β°c Steep hops:
I liquored back 1.6 litres to get OG 1040 and near as damn it to my required volume:
This is FV1 full of Ta Moko wort with US-05 dry sprinkled, I may skim and re-pitch for next weekends Chinook Blonde Brew:

Mashed in just after 8am and finished before 2pm with a brief trip to town to get a strip-light for the kitchen, 2nd breakfast was had in-between batch sparges and lunch while running wort to the FV πŸ™‚

*Bottled 18th Aug ’12 – with 80g of white sugar

[…] weekend I bottled my last two brews, Ta Moko II & Chinook Blonde and I’m still warm conditioning my Double IPA HopZilla IPA… so […]

[…] Just a touch more Chinook at the end with a little less Carapils and it should be about spot on. AG #86 – Ta Moko II I’ll brew it again! I hope the next crop of Nelson Sauvin has as much Catty-punch as when I […]

Really nice smooth beer, got that sweet NZ hop thing going on. Very mellow and reminds me of a pre takeover beer that Harvistoun never brewed (this is a convoluted compliment)!Extremely competent and wonderfully flavoursome lower abv beer! πŸ™‚ ++++++++++++++++

Thanks a lot Joe πŸ™‚ Its pretty old now, I must make more and maybe dry hop it too.

stumbled upon your wordpress page via googling stc1000 hlt, looking through some of your brews, this one sparked an interest pretty new to all grain only having done 3 brews but have used MO pale malt for all three so far, i have been looking at other base malts, liking the sound of this recipe.. ps. nice garage setup πŸ™‚

if you could recommend any of your all grain recipes you have thought.. oh i must brew this again! in a ipa would be great, been looking at your 50litre stock pot for a possibly future upgrade, using plastic 30litre at the moment and 2.4kw element, brew days still a bit frantic for me so would be nice to make a double batch until im less frantic watching temps like a hawk and so on πŸ˜‰ stc1000 mod already planned after seeing your post

Glad you like the blog, its meant to be useful for something πŸ˜‰

Check my ‘Review of the Year’ posts you’ll see the recipes I’d like to brew again, the temp control makes brewdays easy but I keep everything else basic and simple.
