Rye makes beer taste like licking a dishcloth.
Looking to plan a batch for the weekend to have ready for the AFL grand final. It's gotta be approachable to mega swillers. I've come up with 2 options so far:
Blonde Ale (JW Malts)
FWH Magnum to 18 IBU
Saaz at 20min to 6 IBU
Saaz at 5min to 2 IBU
Wy 1056 to 18C
Mash at 66C
SMURTO Golden Ale
What should I go for? Any feedback for the Blonde?
It's amazing the number of people who turn their heads up immediately at the sight of a slightly dark golden beer, with the same reponse of 'i dont like dark beers'.Make sure it's yellow-gold.
Nothing tends to turn off drinkers of megaswill, euroswill or anything else fairly mainstream than a beer that's more than about 6-7 EBC. You could serve them Corona, colour it with food colouring to brown, and they'd still think it tasted 'too dark'.
I had a guy at work, who I've got into BIAB - and I gave him an APA, which was gold-red. It tasted 'too strong' and he 'doesn't like dark beers'.
Couldn't agree more.... I had three beers on tap, Smurto's Golden Ale, Tony's Monteith's Original and the Bright Ale... some felt the golden ale was too full on, although when i said it was like James Squires they liked it better! And they all said that the Montieth's was darker than they would normally drink! It had the least body of all three bloody beers (i stuffed it a little)!"so anything bright and light will already have them curious and keen for a sample."
Piss off man, he wants it for grand final not in months.. Im with bribie100% Wey Pils and NZ Hallertau to 25 IBUs with any lager yeast.
Bottle in green stubbies with a CPBF so it can be drank from the bottle.
People don't believe it's "homebrew". Homebrew doesn't come in a bottle without sediment tasting like Eurolager.
Months? It's for megaswill drinkers. Follow a megaswill procedure.Piss off man, he wants it for grand final not in months..
