Strike temp @ 54oC. Protein rest @ 52oC for 15min in 17.7L H2O 3 teaspoons of CaSO4 yielding Ca2 139ppm, SO4/2- 333ppm (Total Vol=22.13L) . Mashed @ 65oC for 60min (1oC/min temp rise). Mash out @ 76oC for 10min (1oC/min temp rise). Lautered for 90min and sparged with 20L H2O @ 76oC (pH~5, using ~3ml 88% lactic acid) until SG=1.014. Runoff very clear & devoid of proteinaceous material after 5L recirculation. Predicted 29.5L of wort boiled for 70min with specified hop additions at 0min & 50min. Half tablet of Irish mosh in 1/2 cup H2O added at 50min. Wort in 50L kettle chilled in ice bath @ 8oC for 60min using 120L bucket. (Temp drops to 20oC in 60min. Kettle shaken at 30min intervals to disperse heat). Total wort vol=19L (SG=1.074, Efficiency=65.37%). Decanted 16L into fermenter and added 5.5L of sterile H2O @ 26oC to acheive SG=1.056. Pitched 1L Wyeast1056 starter @21oC. NOTES: Mash inefficient @ 65.37% and under lautered (Stopping too early at SG=1.014 with only 19L of wort at end of boil). Wort copper to golden orange in color.

First Taste Test: 02/11/06

2006-11-02 7:00am

10 days after bottling: My first All-Grain! Appearance: Golden-orangy colour with slight haze. Colour is probably twice as dark as estimated by BeerTools. Brilliant clearness would be ideal. Foam is very fine and creamy with moderate head retention. Good carbonation allows head to instantly reform after swirling. Aroma: Great fresh citrusy hop aroma highly dominates, although slight maltiness still present. Maybe a hint of grassiness. Dry hopping here works a treat. Flavour: Citrusy hop aroma reminiscent of grapefruit highly dominates with slight maltiness. Perhaps a touch sweet with slight ester and maybe a hint of vanilla, but I kinda like it that way. A tart effervescent finish with lingering hop bitterness. If you like Little Creatures Pale Ale, then this comes very very close with its own grapefruit uniqueness. Body: Slight creamy fullness, but not heavy. Maybe a tad thin when served cold. I find it best serve very cold ~3-4oC. Interest to see how it matures over time. Cheers To Beers!!!!
