Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 9 lbs American 2-row

    American 2-row

    Yields a slightly higher extract than Six Rox brewers Malt. Tends to give a smoother, less grainy flavored beer. Some brewers claim they can detect a significant difference in flavor. Lower protein and will yield a lower color than Six-Row Brewers Malt

  • 10 lbs Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    A slightly darker base malt than our Premium 2-Row, our Northwest Pale Ale Malt is produced from well-modified, Western-grown 2-Row barley, with a kilning regimen based closely on traditional British Pale Ale malting practices. Contributes a malty complexity to beer flavor and aroma. Excellent in American Pale Ales and American versions of British beer styles.

    Crystal Malt 20°L

    Sweet, mild caramel flavor and a golden color. Use in light lagers and light ales.

  • 1 lbs Biscuit Malt (Mout Roost 50); Dingemans

    Biscuit Malt (Mout Roost 50); Dingemans

    This toasted malt will provide a warm bread or biscuit flavor and aroma and will lend a garnet-brown color. Use 5-15% maximum. No enzymes. Must be mashed with malts having surplus diastatic power.

  • 0.25 lbs Caramel Malt 35L; Briess

    Caramel Malt 35L; Briess

    Sweet, caramel, toffee flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam, foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • Caramel 35L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

Brewed this tasty treat this past weekend. It smells fantastic! Probably transferring it to secondary in a few days and dry hopping it.

Poured in a Founder's snifter. This beer had an OG of 1.071 and finished at 1.010. This beer has a great citrus floral hop aroma. A thick white head that stays for a while with nice lacing. The flavors of grapefruit and citrus are subtle, not too bitter, a little dry. The alcohol is hiding in the background and can sneak up on you. It seems to fit into the BJCP style guide lines 14C. I am entering this into the 20th Annual Peach State Brew Off.
