AG#111 – SAC IPA

Posted on: January 1, 2014

SAC IPA – You might see some similarities with this brew and my ‘Summit 73 E366‘ brew mainly the amounts and times of the late hops, I’m using up the last of my Pale & Lager malts along with the Cara/Crystal and some Dark Wheat.
I think this is the third year that a bunch of homebrewers have made the effort to brew on New Years Day, but its my fifth NYD brew in 5 years.

Lager Malt – 44.3%
Munich Malt – 20.3% (some of this was English Munich and some was German)
Pale Malt – 19.5%
Wheat Malt Dark (Weyermann) – 6%
Flaked Wheat – 3.6%
Crystal Malt – 3.4%
Cara Hell – 3%

Cluster Pellet – 7.9 % @ 60 mins – 40g (First Wort Hop)
Summit Whole – 17.5 % @ 15 mins – 15g
Apollo Whole – 19.5 % @ 15 mins – 15g
Cascade Whole – 7.9 % @ 15 mins – 15g
Summit Whole – 17.5 % @ 0 mins – 85g (20min steep)
Apollo Whole – 19.5 % @ 0 mins – 40g (20min steep)
Cascade Whole – 7.9 % @ 0 mins – 45g (20min steep)

Final Volume: 25 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.057
Final Gravity: 1.014
Alcohol Content: 5.6% ABV
Mash Efficiency: 75 %
Bitterness: 59 EBU
Colour: 24 EBC
Mash: 67°c for an inordinate amount of time
Yeast: Safale us-05 re-pitched from last gyle

Malts & Temp:
First batch sparge running off:
Big fat hit of flamout hops:
Skimmed straight off the FV of Ring of Fire IPA, mixed with a little fresh wort and pitched at 20c:
Maybe a touch darker than style, though beating it with a paddle it was smelling really good:

It was a bit of a drawn out brewday as i was supposed to be viewing a second hand car or two but one sold and the seller of the other was a bit shit at replying to txt messages.

*Bottled & Casked 8th Jan ’14 – with 15g sugar to the cask and half a Tsp to each of 6 bottles, also the cask was dry hopped with a 60g blend of Summit, Apollo & Cascade. I think it tastes good, my smell and taste are a bit buggered at the moment thanks to a cold.
