ORBY v1.2 – A Tweak & Re-brew of this Over-Run By Yanks a Hoppy AmeriZealand Pale. The first version just didn’t last long enough, it was brilliant, so I thought it about time I made another version with MORE hops 😉 A bit different malt bill, I’m classing the Wheat Malt just like any other Pale malt as I have plenty of it, the Munich is there to add some maltiness that the Lager Malt will be lacking.

Wheat Malt – 2200g – 45%
Munich Malt – 390g – 8%

Hops:
Pacific Gem @ 60 mins – 12g (First Wort Hop)
Nelson Sauvin @ 15 mins – 30g
Cascade @ 15 mins – 20g
Centennial @ 15 mins – 30g
Nelson Sauvin @ 0 mins – 46g (80c Steep for 30mins)

Avoiding the dreaded, Shock Horror!, Hot Side Aeration my arse bull… It actually stops the end of the pipe dangling in the wort while its heating up:

It actually managed to escape the copper just a little but some quick blowing and a bit of a stir saved it:
