Stateside Torpedo IPA – A serious double boiled (due to being a bit tipsy) Hopped-to-F@#K American Pale Ale with the Malt Bill coming from a Mikkeller Stateside IPA and Most of the Hopping coming from a Sierra Nevada Torpedo clone… Yeahhh!! We Made Beer!!! Eventually 😉
Today was mainly about giving a brewing lesson to Rob….

Fermentables:

Hops:
Magnum 75 mins @ 20g
Crystal 25 mins @ 80g
Magnum 25 mins @ 40g
Crystal 15 mins @ 10g
Magnum 15 mins @ 5g
****At this point in the day we re-boiled for 15mins as we’d forgot the Protafloc Tablet, obviously caused by starting drinking at 11am (see photos)
Then decided to give it some more hops as the extra 15mins would have killed the Aroma

Centennial – 0 mins @ 28g
Centennial – 0 mins @ 28g
Hallertauer Mittlefruh – 0 mins 0 lbs. 1.1 oz 30 grams 12.4% – Dry Hop in Fermenter after initial fermentation

Original Gravity: 1.065 – (Actually ended up with 1.073 after the re-boil)
Final Gravity: 1.019
Alcohol Content: 6% ABV
Total Liquor: 29.3 Litres
Mash Liquor: 13.6 Litres
Mash Efficiency: 80 %
Bitterness: 114 EBU – (Re-calculated, should have been about 70 I think!)
Colour: 26 EBC

90min Mash, 60min Boil then cool followed by a 15min boil then cool!!
Yeast – Safale US-05

Bit drunk, but an interesting brewday with Rob from http://www.hopzine.com 🙂
Cheers to Paul from http://www.BarleyBottom.com for the Last minute Crystal Hops 🙂

No Brewday pictures as we were busy nattering and drinking a fine selection of beers Rob brought 🙂

The Aftermath Pictures….
We had a few beers!:

Lots of hops!:

This mornings fine layer of head forming, sat at 18c so I’ve put it somewhere a little warmer now:

Mash Efficiency was 82.5% – 25L @ 1.051 collected in the copper.

🙂

*Bottled 19th Oct ’10 with 65g sugar

FG was 1020 meaning that this beer is about 6.9% ABV

Dry Hopping was actually; 15g Mittlefruh, 5g Magnum, 5g Cascade for 9 days

My first Wheat Beer and a bit of a user-upper too 🙂  I’m only doing 19L as the recipe is tailored around the 2kg of Wheat Malt I had left, with the Crystal Wheat & Chocolate Wheat it takes the Wheat percentage to just over 50% of the entire malt bill.
Hops are the end of a bag of Perle, pre-dry hopped Mittlefruh kept in the Freezer, and the end of a bag of Hersbrucker.
The yeast needed using up too 😉
No intentions of using any water treatments other than to kill the Chlorine and not going to be using protafloc as I want to keep this beer cloudy.

Dark Wheat WB06

Fermentables:
Wheat Malt 2000g 45.4%
Maris Otter 2000g 45.4%

Mash for 90mins, Boil for 60mins, pitch and attempt to keep as cool as possible in the garage (I’m going to need a fermenting fridge sometime!)

The Malts; 50:50 Maris Otter & Wheat Malt, Carafa Special 3, Chocolate Wheat malt, Crystal Wheat malt, NO Gypsum or other water treatments today:

Mash at 67c, which is probably 66c on my thermometer:

Coming to a boil, even so it was only a 19L brew it was close to boil over, a full 23L would have needed a bit of stirring etc:

Muddy water:

Safbrew WB-06 dry sprinkled:

Another no fuss brewday, kind of had a bit of a break in the middle before starting the boil but still finished up for about 1pm 🙂
Weird not using Protafloc (or other copper finings) the total lack of any cold break material and instead just muddy looking wort, all in the sake of Cloudiness.

*Bottled 3rd Jun ’10 with 100g Sugar priming.
