Ingredients (All Grain10 gal)

  • 12.50 lbs Maris Otter Pale

    Maris Otter Pale

    An English thoroughbred and a favored choice of malt for many brewers. Simpsons' Maris Otter has a rich and nutty flavor and despite its small, berry size has a strong husk. This malt delivers predictable brewhouse performance with modest, yet consistent extracts. Brewers can expect good runoffs with clear wort.

Netted only 9 gallons due to 90 minute boil. Grains rounded to full pound, and used 3 oz. Syrian goldings. Added 2 tablespoons gypsum and 2 teaspoons lactic acid to sparge. Yeast starter o.g. 1.040. Mashed at 152. Two 30 sec oxygen bursts before pitching yeast cake. Primary 6 days. Secondary13 days. Kegged 2 days on CO2 before switching to nitrogen. Color can only be described as black. Creamy tan head that holds longer than past efforts. Coffee and cocoa powder nuances. Great maltiness with a slight bit of tartness. Overall pleased to the point I don't want to share.
