I felt like doing an APA SMASH, so here's what's happening this weekend:


20L
OG: 1.055
IBU: 37 (possiblely a bit higher due to slow chill [chuck jerry in the fridge]).

100% MO - 4.8kg
20g Amarillo @ 45'
15g Amarillo @ 25'
20g Amarillo @ 5'
US05

90' @ 65c
Decoction to 75c (Pull decoction at 60' and simmer for 10-15' after reaching the boil)

Note that I've re-coded my Amarillo pellets to 8.5% alpha based on the BS age tool. I have a packet opened, so I thought I'd make good use of it before it gets too old/stale. I haven't decocted yet, so I am keen to give it a try and given I want to add some caramel tones and colour to the beer (without adding other malts), it seemed like a perfect solution.

Looking forward to the taste test in a few weeks. Any advice/comments meanwhile?
