Not so many pics today, ended up with 1.5 litres more than my target volume 🙂

*13th Feb ’14 – Dry Hopped with 100g Magnum T90 pellets as it was close to final gravity.

*Bottled 24th Feb ’14 – with 122g white sugar, tastes pretty bland with some light grassiness from the dry hop 🙂

*14th Mar ’14 – This is actually not bad, crisp carbonation and smooth bitterness, very easy drinking.

UK Cascade – Trying out a Single Hop UK-grown Cascade brew. Using up the end of a sack of Lager Malt and thought I’d throw in some nice German Munich and give it some body with the Carapils, and I’d just got some Melanoidin malt so in went some of that 😉

Mashed at 67°c (actually aimed for 68°c but what the hey) mash duration was well passed 90mins as I was out with the dogs, and i ended up with over 87% Mash Efficiency.

The Mash, you can really smell the Melanoidin Malt:

Sparging Temp in the HLT:

First Wort Hops and first runnings, I used the Sweet Pale Ale profile in the GW Calc for my Liquor Treatment:

A goodly amount of UK Cascade @ 15mins:

Steeping, Hop soup, a fair amount of seeds in these uk Cascade:

Near as damn it, think the Refractometer said 10.4 brix so OG 1040:

Ran off to FV in quick-sticks, lovely clear wort (why I didn’t make a mesh hop-stopper sooner I don’t know!) and pitched US-05:

Easy brewday, I bottled AG#76 after brewing 🙂 Yeast pitched at 20°c and put in fermentation Fridge set at 20°c

*13th Apr ’12 – Had a little trial jar taste, Gravity down to 1010-ish, some flavour a bit like what I got in my Revolutions Comp Brew that I didn’t enter, I feel this may be either the Re-packaged yeast I used (most probable) or the fermenting bucket is contaminated.

*14th Apr ’12 – Had another taste in a glass rather than a trial jar, I was maybe a bit quick to judge though there is something underlying. I shall stick to original packaged Safale us-05 from now on I think, maybe it had been in my fridge too long before pitching.

*Bottled 21st Apr ’12 – with 80g of white sugar, I actually wonder if the flavour I’m getting is the Melanoidin Malt… I’ll have to get someone in the know to have a taste and tell me its pants! 😉
