Anyone got a good reciepe for Little Creature Pale Ale. I did a large batch awhile back - just using the Country Brewer reciepe - and it was great stuff. I am down to my last couple of bottles and wanted to bput another one on.
Just wonder what others reciepes people are using to see if I can make something even better?
If not I will be off to CB this week to pick up the goodies
There is a recipe on the grumpys forum: www.grumpys.com.au. Do a search under "Partial mash & a hop question". It uses a mash of 1kg pale malt, a 1.5 tin of LME, a grumpys boston cream masterbrew, bittered with cascade and brewed with a Wyeast American Ale 11.
The Boston Cream masterbrew with some cascade is very LCPAish.
I made one with Crystal Malt, LME, Cascade Hops and White Labs California Ale. Needed a little longer than most in the bottle due to a recipe conversion error I made, but all in all tasted pretty good. Reminds me, I should bottle the Rogers clone I have going.
I brewed my "clone which is not a clone" based on my tasting of LCPA and the stock of ingredients I had. I tried a Rogers for the first time while my batch was brewing I just made a batch of ale with pale LME, Pale Chocolate Malt, Crystal Malt and some Caramunich Malt, hopped with cascade. Racked my brew yesterday, tastes OK.
Rogers is not bad, an interesting quirky beer, but not necessarily a "great" beer.
When you come to Perth go and have a meal at the brewery in Freo and drink it on tap then take a box home. Food is pretty good if a little dear, but the beer is great and the setting is good too, casual Freo vibe, sitting under fermenters... They have Rogers, LCPA and a pilsener on tap. The pale ale is the best for mine. The draught is different to the bottles, perhaps less hoppy but still lovely.
If I have to drink medium strength, Rogers is hands down my favourite at the moment. 3.8% but still full bodied, in a similar style to the pale ale.
Had my first ever bottle of the Rogers' tonight. I've been a fan of the Pale Ale for a while but never had a chance to try the Rogers' until tonight. Not a bad drop. I think the lower alcohol is actually a good thing. I agree with you though, the Pale Ale is the way to go. One of my top 5 Aussie beers.
heres my lastest all grain lcpa its still in the making and always getting better although not an exact clone its unreal and will get better especially now i have chinnook hops.this one is all cascade
for a mini mash just swap 2 kg of pale malt for 1.5kg coopers light extract.
and 1kg for dme although the dme will take to much away from the specialty malts flavour in that it adds a very sweet taste.so just convert it as you wish.
4.5 pale malt
200g amc dark crystal this ones much darker than lcpa so 40 to 60l crystal is recomended for more of a clone
450g cara pils
250g munich malt
250g wheat (actuall lcpa only uses 4 malts)
40 g cascade 60 mins i believe lcpa is chinnook here
1/2 oz " " 15 mins
1/2 oz " " 10 mins
1 oz " " 5 mins
1 oz " " 1 min
ive got about 6 or 7 of these recipes if anyone wants
it started has 5 kg pale
200 dark crystal
Dont use Chinook hops if you can help it. They are quite funky and not very pleasant. Use Centennial instead. They have a REALLY nice bitter-sweet citrusy, piney thing going on and are awsome for any US pale ale or US IPA.
well i guess ill have to find that out for myself i brought a 1/2 a kilo of the chinook hops to do these beers after reading good things about them.and lcpa taste great which uses them.
iam sure ill still be able to get a awsome result with them.
oh theres a mistake in that recipe if you want to do extract with only a 1kg pale malt mash it should be something like
swap 3.5kg of pale malt for 1.5kg coopers light extract.
and 750kg dme.
anyway it depends on high bigger mash you want to do so convert how you wish i never really try to hit extact starting gravities.although i will be one day. cant wait for my designing great beers book.
