The Malts:
Today’s Brewday is brought to you by Simcoe, Motueka & NZ Cascade hops:
First Wort Hops and tiny common salt addition:
The Mash at 66c:
Running from mash tun into copper:
The gorgeous smelling 80c steep hops, apparently the house was smelling extra Hoppy today:
Break material clumping as the Wort cools, the wort was tasty and already displaying a good bitterness:

Bit of a lazy start to the day then for some reason the hop-stopper decided to block and required some ‘Spatulation’ with the plastic paddle.
Yeast Pitched, in the fridge at 20c. I’ll be dry hopping this with the same combo of hops after fermentation.

*18th Nov ’11 – Dry hopped with 10g Simcoe, 20g Motueka, 20g NZ Cascade

*20th Nov ’11 – Dry hopped with 10g Motueka, 10g NZ Cascade

*Bottled 27th Nov ’11 – with 71g of sugar, I’m drinking the last pint out of the bottling bucket as it tastes too good to throw away. Tastes smooth 🙂
Think it could have stood to be a bit more black, it might be a Trashy Brown!

*25th Jan ’12 Hopzine review of Trashy Black, thanks Rob much appreciated

This is an attempt at Brewdog’s Trashy Blonde and the recipe started life as Sara Carter’s (Scarer)
This will be my first experience of Pellet hops with the Motueka, I’m going to ferment it with Safale us-05 and Mashing at 68c (though I aimed for 69c, even after a pre-heat, empty and refill of the Mash tun I still lost almost 5c from 83c in the HLT), Mash for a minimum of 60mins.
I may dry hop this with 13g of Ahtanum in the fermenter… to be decided.

Running to fermenter, the clearest wort I’ve made for a long while, the break material just dropped like a stone:
Looks like about 1040, Refractometer said 11.75 Brix which is about 1045 bit high but I’m not going to worry about it:

I’ll clean the copper tomorrow, there’s beer to be drunk….

After 7 days in the Fermenter I dry hopped this with:
15g Ahtanum
10g Motueka (Pellets)
10g Simcoe

*Bottled 10th Jan ’11 with 65g sugar
