  • 0.360 kg Crystal 15; Great Western

    Similar to the C120, but with a much more intense flavor and color. May get a hint of the burnt character.

  • 28 g Amarillo® - 7.0 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min


    Grown in Washington. A newer multi-use hop with a nice citrus-flower bouquet and medium-high acid content suited for bittering. Used in American Ales and IPAs.

  • 1 tsp Irish Moss - Boil for 15 min. (omitted from calculations)

    Irish Moss

    A dried red-brown marine algae. Fining agent to remove large proteins. Negatively charged polymer attracts positively charged protein-tannin complexes (extracted from grain husks and hops) during the boil. This action is aided by the clumping of proteins in the boiling process. Irish moss settles to the bottom of the brew kettle with spent hops and hot break material at the end of the boil.

  • Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    The most famous ale yeast strain found across America, now available as a ready-to-pitch dry yeast. Produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Sedimentation: low to medium. Final gravity: medium. Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C± 3C(80F ±6F). Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C(68F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.


Treat both mashing water and sparging water with 1/12 tsp of campden powder for each. 1 step mashing at 69C for 90 min. and mash-out at 76C for 10 min. Got 25.44 litters of the pre-boil wort. Added 0.5 litters of cold water to make it 25.94 litters. Brewed on 5/11/14. The OG was 1.064.

Bottled on 7/6/14. The FG was 1.016. I expected more body, but the beer turned out to be thinner than I had expected. May be that is the style, since I prefer beers with heavy body. The chocolate malt is quite noticeable, though I have restrained its use, and it is not pleasant at all. I always have a problem to control a flavor from this malt. I prefer Irish red ale to this beer. As a cooking beer, it is good enough.
