 Daughters birthday coming up and of course she has asked I will brew her a beer! Well I am really really rusty but thinking something like this. It is for a bunch of 20 - 21 year olds that like Captain Morgan/cider and some beer.

 

Thoughts?

I think that will be a bit bitter for those young girls. I reckon you are pretty close to the "sticks and stones" recipe in the recipe section, that is a pretty close clone of stone and wood pacific ale that the girls would probably like.

Line some brews up for her, commercial and your own brews, see if there's one she likes more/less.

Galaxy at 60min- nooooooo.

 

Looks a good recipe mate but my rule of thumb is never use galaxy before the last 10 minutes. It is astringent as fuck at 60 min.

 

Chuck that 12g in at 5 minutes. Also your 0 minute additions WILL add IBUS. Move that 60 minute additoin to 5 min and you will have a winner.

Mash temp looks a bit high? Also the fg looks high as well at 1017? Do you really want to be serving up 6% beers, unless of course you want the party over a little earlier.

Cheers

My daughter has a pretty good palate where beer is concerned but I am mindful of the other party goers. Just looking for an easy drinking, smooth mouth feel, fruity ending and balanced bittering.

28ibu's too much you reckon? Just worried about balance?

Never used galaxy (yep that's how long I have been out of the game)so galaxy at five minutes and none at flame out? Get most of the bitterness with PoR? or top up bitterness with combo of pride and Willamette?

I like to mash a little high for body. 1017 - counting on my efficiency not being so good so bring it in at around 5.2 - but good point will have a look at that and maybe go for a4.8% finish.

^^well the o minute additions might add another 5-10 IBU depending on how quickly you cool it down. so you might end up close to 35IBU. that's fairly bitter depending on what your fermentation profile is like. If I was making a beer for 20 year old girls I'd be going for 15 IBU. 

 

actually the beer that I find 20-something girls like best whenever I have had a party is a belgian wit at 10-12 IBU.

28 ibu will be fine. Just do it and have some other stuff on hand as well.

Higher fg will balance the high 20s ibu.

Another vote for Sticks and Stones as likely being popular with the intended audience.

Keep your flame out addition and bring your 60 minute addition back to 5 minutes. I wouldnt top up the bitterness at 60min but. As mentioned you will pick up some IBUs with the flame out addition (maybe 5) and probably the same amount again with the new 5 minute addition. Also you mention you dont expect your efficiency to be as high as 80%. If your OG is lower your IBUs will be higher for a given amount of hops.

25.00 g Willamette [5.50 %] - Boil 0.0 min
20.00 g Galaxy [14.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min
 
I should give this combo a go some day...

Cheers! I have brewed a couple of commercial size beers one for my beer café and one last year a collaboration with BentSpoke - an old English ale with 7 herbal aphrodisiacs in it. Good fun!
