I'm having a crack at my first smash brew using Maris Otter and Simcoe. It's something different from what's usually done and I've come up with the following recipe:
5.5kg Maris Otter
(I was also tossing up adding 250g Carapils which I have lying around...)
15g Simcoe @ 60
15g Simcoe @ 20
28g Simcoe @ 0 (Steep for 15mins)
56g Simcoe Dry Hop 10 days
Mash @ 67 for 90 mins
Est OG: 1.051
Est FG: 1.012
I was going loosely for a British Golden Ale style with a lot of hop aroma from the dry hop and moderate flavour from the flameout addition. I didnt want it too bitter to overpower the MO... What do you think?
