    This one was a simple recipe - 100% golden promise and Motueka hops.

    Usually when I try a new malt I do a simple SMASH so I get a feel for it without being confused by other ingredients.

    The colour in my photo was shining a torch into the fermenter, will be interesting to see if the colour follows through into the final beer. Hope it does.

    I love golden promise for just about anything, but especially IPA's. Simpsons is the bomb for IPA's.

    After exploring a 4 malt grain bill for my session ales with the Base Jumper series, I'm moving to a ternary blend to see how that fares. I will also increase the abv up from low 4% to mid 4s keeping the ibu around 18.

    # 153 - Triple Threat Ale 1

    OG - 1044
    FG - 1008
    ABV - 4.6%
    IBU - 18
    EBC - 7.4
    Vol - 20lt

    32% Pilsner
    32% Vienna
    32% Wheat
    Acidulated for lower pH approx 150g (4%)

    mashed at 66c for 45mins, target pH will be 5.4, sulphate @ 100ppm, chloride @ 50ppm ( usually target 200ppm sulphate, backing it off a bit)

    60mins boil

    Amarillo @ 10m
    Amarillo and Galaxy Whirlpool for 20mins

    Chill to 18c and ferment with Danstar BRY97 West Coast ale

    Dry hop with be same combo Amarillo & Galaxy = 2g per L for 3 days.

    Did a collab brew with @murpho on the new rig yesterday - an Imperial India Red Ale to give it a good working over. Scaled up and tweaked a previous Amber Ale recipe that we'd done, but don't know whether this is going to be hop-overload or how well the malts will scale. Will see in a coupla weeks. Have dropped little a bit in the conversion efficiency compared to the old rig so will look at tweaking that back up over the next few brews. My boiloff was a little lower than planned so didn't quite meet the 1.093/20lt target. Bumped it up to a 2-hour boil so I could run a thinner mash but that extra mash water probably wasn't necessary in the end.

    Mountain Rang

    OG - 1089
    FG - 1017
    ABV - 9.3%
    IBU - 100-ish
    EBC - 27
    Vol FV - 22lt

    Wey Bo Pils - 83.2%
    Wey Munich Dark - 8.5%
    Gladfield Crystal Medium - kg 2.8%
    Gladfield Crystal Dark - 2.8%
    Wey Melanoidin - 2.8%

    Boil 120 mins

    Columbus @ 120 mins
    Columbus and Centennial @ 0 mins
    Columbus and Centennial @ 80 deg whirlpool 30 mins
    Centennial dry hop

    US-05

    For no other reason than I've got a heap of grapefruit on my tree, I wanted to make a grapefruit IPA.
    Going to have a few strong beers on tap, so aiming for more of a session.

    Anyone got any thoughts on this recipe?

    23l batch
    4.3kg (79%) MO
    0.54 (10%) Munich I
    0.27 (5%) Wheat
    0.21 (4%) Caramunich I
    0.11 (2%) Acidulated

    15g Magnum @ 60
    30g each of Cascade, Simcoe and Citra in the cube

    Dry hop with 30g each of Citra & Simcoe
    3-4 grapefruit skins in vodka overnight and then into the fermenter for a couple of days before kegging

    Very keen to just give it a shot, but never done anything with grapefruit (or any fruit) before so not sure what it'll do

    Send a PM to AJ80, his swap beer was a grapefruit beer. Having never brewed with it myself, I do recall AJ saying he got more acidity and/or bitterness from the grapefruit than expected.

    EDIT: Like your grain bill by the way!

    I myself would go for a lighter-flavoured base malt. That's what I almost always do when I have a subtle flavour I want to bring out.

    The pith (the white part of the skin) imparts a great deal of bitterness, hence in cooking they only use the zest.

    What sort would you choose instead?

    I was thinking that - was planning on not including the pith

    Yes of course, good idea!

    So turns out I'm a little short on Columbus for my planned dry hopping quantity, does anyone have any thoughts regarding a Centennial/Simcoe dry hop combo instead, to go with the Centennial/Columbus that went into the kettle and whirlpool?

    I do have most of the other big-name US hops in freezer as well, but since I'm aiming for a orange/citrus/pine profile I thought the Simcoe might be the go. The beer is kinda loosely inspired by the Kaiju Betelgeuse Imperial Amber Ale.

    I'm super organised today so while everthings going wee for the brew day I'll quickly post it ............brewing at as we speak

    Hobgoblin
    IBU 23
    ABV5.5%

    Maris otter floor malted 91%
    medium crystal 4%
    cara pils 2.9%
    chocolate malt 2.1%

    fuggles 60 min 7.7 IBU
    styrian golding 60 min 8.8
    fuggles 30 min 3.8 IBU
    styrian goldings 30 min 2.7

    flame out fuggles and styrian again

    Mash in at 50
    68 for 90 min
    mashout 77 for 10 min

    ONly difference I'm doing is FWH instead of 60 min (finding FWH is a smoother bitterness that I prefer so doing it for all 60 min additions of late
    and I'll hopstand/ whirlpool at 70 for 30 minutes
