Hi Big D,

had a few minutes, so i plugged it into Promash and it might not hit the right level of alcohol for an IPA by a huge 2 or 3 points. The hops sound like a crap load :blink: but would make it one big arse IPA. :) hard to get some figures with out knowing the % AA of the Simcoe's etc.

Bigd.
i'd bump the pale malt up to 5.5kg.
that'l give you og 1.068 and 83 ibu.

without the extra pale malt its og 1.045 ibu 100.

i'd even leave out the cara munich and mash at 66c.

hows that?
look good?

sounds too good jayse.while i walked out to get a beer i was thinking along the lines of upping the base malt.
no caramunich? ok
low crystal was because of the ebc being high i thought along the lines of not wanting too dark a beer.
maybe up the munich a tad hey? thoughts jayse.others

cheers

my resoning for not using the caramunich is you really won't need it the other crystal will be plenty with all the base malt.
either way use only one of the crystal malt additions if you want it pretty light in colour etc use the caramunich but leave out the other crystal malt.
either way you'll only need around 200g of crystal.

yeap up the munich to 500g .

also 20 g of simcoe will do that'll still be a 70 ibu beer.

its looking good.
but what ever you do up the base malt from your original too 5.5 kg.

before you set everything in stone post your final thoughts and i'll check the O.G ibu and colour etc for you.

you really need pro mash mate.
even the free trail you can keep using forever but you just can't save, print, send etc.

Big D, i was thinking along the same lines (uping the base malt) to help overcome the huge hop bill. :)

and with jayse's suggestions, sounds good

I'd put 60g or more in at flame out too.
chuck as much in a flame out as you like.
So in the end this beer is going to be pretty much the same beer i'll be doing this week.

heres my recipe so far.
JAYSE'S DEMON ALE.
==============================
5.5KG JW ALE MALT 5 EBC
1KG IMC MUNICH MALT 11 EBC
25OG MELANOIDIN MALT 40 EBC
250 G WHEAT MALT
200G CARAROMA 300EBC


42 G NORTHERN BREWER 80 MINS

10g G AMARILLO AND 10 G CASCADE at 45-35-25-15 and 5 mins
30G EACH AT FLAME OUT.


notingham ale yeast.

O.G 1065 IBU around 80



you have everything exept the melanoidin.
I have simcoe but i'll use that next time.

I need too stock up a bit so i'll try get 4 brews down in 2 weeks.
This being the first might give me some mighty powers.
Thats why iam thinking hop everything including the HLT and MLT.
just for a pure Zen thing you could hop the mill hopper.
Anymore ideas?

you thought of doing this yet jayse?
hop chewing before drinking. ;)
btw that trial ive got going with the amarillo is like wow.what aroma and taste.
you should like this hop jayse.
i believe with simcoe that you can use a fair amount for bittering as it is rather smooth considering its high aa rating.its gone down a treat with what ive used so far.

big d, there was a thread on here a few weeks/months back that had the JW malt profiles for promash, just download and on the database menu, click import

i think for my next brews, i might need to ring ol Dave and get some of those hops B)

FMH :p
First mouth hopping, iv'e done that it works best with whats left in the kettle but the spent hopback hops are allright. :wacko:

OK i'll go simcoe.
This recipe has pushed SSOS back a while.
I reckon this one might be better though.
I may use london ale. The recipe is 25 litres at the end of boil so at least 20 litres into the fermentor.

jayse would normally be doing this recipe with a liquid yeast however i have issues with my stock being a bit over aged i think.
would love to try this with wyeast 1026 british cask ale yeast which i believe our old mate dave is getting in stock next month.will buy this for sure when in crow land.
so many recipes such little time.

Yeap if i could get the cask ale now i would be using that.
But i still may go with nottingham it did the job well on one of these i made.
I wouldn't chance a yeast if your not sure of its condition either.

yep ive been told to try/taste your yeast starters as a good guide to its health.im not into this(tastes yuk) but have been doing it none the less and after tasting one that was very gassious/acidic i will have to now agree.trial and error will soon have you tasting whats right and wrong in yeast culture.
ive recently been using nottingham yeast (thanks once again tda) and reckon this is one great yeast well worth putting into your brewers arsenal.

A real bad starter will just down right smell bad and you won't beable to smell anything else for the rest of the day

i even taste the few dribbles left in the smack pack which gives a reasonble assement as to what a good starter should taste like.

Just checking your final recipe bigd.
looks good but it will be on the dark side it won't be pale.
Thats how iam making mine though.
so if you like change the crystal around in pro mash untill you get a good colour.

also i'd go for a 25 litre recipe and add another 1 kg of pale.
thats 25 litres left in the kettle so at least 20 litres in the fermentor.
your recipe is for about 21.5 litres.
i like playing it safe and having room to move by doing 25 litre batchs.
