AG#101 – SCAN

Posted on: August 11, 2013

SCAN (Summer, Citra, Amarillo & Nelson Sauvin) I’ve not brewed since the 18th of May due to being busy with a lean-to construction on the house so this is a quick crowd pleaser, nothing too strong or too bitter but bags of flavour.

I’ll try not leave it as long before I brew again, Sorry about that if you are a regular reader😉 Thats 85 non-homebrewing days!

Lager Malt – 50%
Pale Malt – 40%
Caragold – 5%
Cara Hell – 5%

Summer – 6.5 % @ 60 mins – 50g (FWH)
Citra – 15.0 % @ 0 mins – 40g
Amarillo – 8.7 % @ 0 mins – 40g
Nelson Sauvin – 12.1 % @ 0 mins – 40g (All 0mins hops 30min steep)

Final Volume: 23 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.040
Final Gravity: 1.010
Alcohol Content: 3.9% ABV
Mash Efficiency: 75 %
Bitterness: 32 EBU
Colour: 7 EBC
Mash: 69°c for 60mins
Yeast: Safale us-05

The Malts, I added a rough 1 Tsp Calcium Chloride to the mash:
First Wort Summer Hops:
A nice healthy Flame-out steep:
FV and bits had some extra love today, a nice soak with a chlorine based cleaner-sanitiser, good rinse then a final StarSan:
1042.5, liquored back to 1040:

All went fine apart from the PSU on my solar pump decided to pack in so swapped for spare pump/psu so i could stir my HLT. The ground water is pretty warm at the moment so cooling took an age and I gave up at 21°c before liquoring back and pitching the yeast.

*15th Aug ’13 – Gravity at 1010, tasting good, might dry hop it tomorrow.

*16th Aug ’13 – Dry Hopped ‘subtly’ with:
Nelson Sauvin – 20g
Amarillo – 10g
Citra – 10g
Summer – 10g
AG#101 - SCAN
Just over 2g/Litre with whole hops, they are going to need a good stir in once they have soaked properly.

*Bottled 21st Aug ’13 with 110g white sugar, tasting good.

*28th Aug ’13 – 1 week in the bottle and tasting very good, light and refreshing with oodles of flavour and nose🙂

This is a cracking beer matey! lovely! Proves you don’t need flavour/aroma hops in the boil! steeping has really given this beer a popping flavour and aroma

Glad it went down well🙂
