AG#95 – WheatArillo

Posted on: February 23, 2013

WheatArillo – With 5kg of fresh Amarillo in the garage I’d be silly not to, I’ve also got a fair bit of Wheat Malt that I could do with using up too… 😉
I’d have preferred to brew a big bad Amarillo Wheat like I did back in AG#36 but I figure this could be my entry into the NCB/Saltaire Comp on 13th April, I’ll be brewing again next week so I’ll pick the better of the two to enter.
**Won’t be dry hopping, ferment-out & bottle as soon as possible.

Fermentables:
Wheat Malt – 69%
Lager Malt – 23%
Carapils (Weyermann) – 8%
Oat Husks – 5%
(You may notice the % don’t add up, this is because I added 5% extra Oat Husks after calculating the recipe in BeerEngine)

Hops:
Amarillo – 8.7 % @ 60 mins – 24g
Amarillo – 8.7 % @ 30 mins – 24g
Amarillo – 8.7 % @ 10 mins – 40g
Amarillo – 8.7 % @ 0 mins – 40g

Final Volume: 23 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.045
Final Gravity: 1.011
Alcohol Content: 4.4% ABV
Mash Efficiency: 70 % (Reduced a little as I’m using a lot of wheat)
Bitterness: 49 EBU
Colour: 5 EBC
Mash: 90mins @ 68c
Boil: 60mins
Yeast: Safale us-05
Liquor Treatment: General Purpose copied of a previous Brewsheet of similar Mash quantity & OG.

The Malts, its pretty cold in the Garage today:

I think you’ll agree that was a particularly poor photographic effort!
I wasn’t messing about and made this as easy as I could, it will be nice to have some Amarillo homebrew in stock again.

*2rd Mar ’13 – **I actually just dry hopped it with 1g/L of Amarillo Pellets 😉 I’d have regret it if I hadn’t, its should be subtle but add an element of freshness.

*Bottled 8th Mar ’13 – with 110g white sugar to 22 litres of beer, tasting good, should be drinkable as soon as its carb’d up 🙂
