Hells Half Acre Wheat

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Wheat or Rye Beer | 5.4 % ABV
this is the first cut at a clone for Boulevard 80 acre hoppy wheat. I went with a 105 minute mash, no reason really except i was having lunch with 5 gallons of water, stirring only at the beginning and the end of the mash.. Started at 151 and ended at 149 only a two degree loss over almost 2 hours. I sparged with about 2.75 gallons of 170 degree water into my 5 gallon plactic bucket and dunked a few times and strirred very well, left to rest for 15 minutes, stirred again and then drained and ...

Rhondas in the Lime Light

Rhondas in the Lime Light

All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | Lite American Lager | 4.4 % ABV
Bud Light Clone - will probably add the zest of 3-4 limes at 5 minutes to make this a Bud Light Lime. Brewed this today, Overshot my mash temp at 150.6 mashed for 90 minutes, stirred at 30 and 60 temp at 30 was 146.7, at 60 was 144.3, at 90 was 144.1. Boiled 90 minutes added Whirflock and Yeast Nutrient at 15 and Aroma, Flavor hops at 5 along with the zest of 3 limes. Hit an Original Gravity of 1.038. Will add gelatin with 3 or 4 days left in secondary to clear it up. Decided to "dry hop" with ...

Pliny the Elder

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | Imperial IPA | 7.5 % ABV
This is the Austin Homebrew Clone of Pliny the Elder, supposedly from Russian River Brewer Vinnie. I'll be brewing this on Friday 7/5/13. The O.G. of the recipe is listed as 1.072 and F.G. is 1.011 for an ABV of 8% pre-priming. Mashing at 150 will hopefully get this big beer that low. Did some reading up on Pliny and it seems they've added Amarillo to the mix of hops, since I have some I might at a little to the dry hop. I made a 1.25 liter starter with WLP001. Split the dry hop into 2 separate ...

Centennial & Citra Pale Ale

Centennial & Citra Pale Ale

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Pale Ale | 5.4 % ABV
Original version of this recipe was hopped with Summit and Willamette, from a brewing standpoint it was exactly what I was trying to make, however, from a flavor standpoint the Summit hops were overpowering in a very unpleasant way. Onion and Garlic all the way in this beer. I couldn't taste the Willamette at all just Onion and Garlic. It was pretty bad. I've updated this base recipe with Citra and Centennial, Mitch Steele mentioned that it was a great combo in his interview with Basic Brewing ...
Blue Water Wheat 2

Blue Water Wheat 2

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Wheat or Rye Beer | 5.7 % ABV
Hit mash temp of 150 on the nose, however it dropped to 149 30 minutes in and was at 148 at 60 and 147 at 90 minutes. Sparged with 180 water(2.5 gal)stirred well, dunked the bag a few times and let sit for 15 minutes, temp stabilized at 162, stirred and dunked again, drained the grains and added to mash water. Preboil gravity was 1.042, should end up at 1.051 or so. OG came in at 1.052, good efficiency for this medium grain bill. Hit the 5.5 gallon volume spot on. Testing this batch with a ...
Floaters Red RyePA V2

Floaters Red RyePA V2

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 6.3 % ABV
Need to play around a bit with the hop additions, and maybe lighten the color just a touch. I think cascades will work well as a replacement for some of my scarce Amarillo hops, I've update this recipe and I think it's good to go as written fInal edits done 03.12.13, the evening before brewday on 03.13.13. One more change use half and half Cascade and Amarillo for the dry hop. Moves it away from Red's RyePA but I think it's better.
The Peeps

The Peeps

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Pale Ale | 5.1 % ABV
First time making this recipe, I changed the bittering hop from Magnum to Columbus since I had some I needed to use. I really guessed at the IBU since I couldn't find a definitive source and I ended up going with about 50 IBU. I'm going with a huge dry hop of about 5 ounce for this beer. Brew day was smooth, mash temp settled at 152 and stayed with a tenth of degree over 90 minutes. Ended with 6 gallons into the fermenter at 1.052. Sample tasted sweet with a nice bitterness and a lot of hop ...

All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Brown Ale | 6.5 % ABV
Janet's Brown Ale Recipe by Tasty McDole, scaled to my system efficiency. Don't know exactly how to calculate the bitterness gained from the mash hopping, but I'll look into it. Mash this at 154. IBU's on Tasty's is 63.2

Galaxy Eight

Galaxy Eight

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American Pale Ale | 4.9 % ABV
Loosely based on Tallgrass Brewing 8 Bit Pale Ale. I like the beer and have some Galaxy hops, so I used the info on their website as a guideline. Kept the IBU's and ABV the same or close enough. I'll add this to the brew list. I've brewed this and a variation of this recipe twice, this recipe is slightly darker than the original 8 Bit Pale Ale but the hop profile was almost indistinguishable from the original. I created a variant with less munich and got the color spot on, however I like the my ...

Ithaca Flower Power Clone

Ithaca Flower Power Clone

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 7.1 % ABV
Clone recipe for Ithaca Brewing's Flower Power IPA, the basic recipe came from http://www.eckraus.com/blog/developing-clone-beer-recipe. I've updated it a little for my system. I'd like to make this in the next couple of months. Changed 60 minute addition from Simcoe to Summit, just to save Simcoe for later additions. Fantastic beer and this clone is spot on.
Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 6.7 % ABV
Clone of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, the source of the recipe is http://www.eckraus.com/blog/torpedo-extra-ipa-clone-recipe-all-grain. I changed the recipe for my system. I really like Torpedo Extra IPA, it's a very nice IPA and a great value at Sam's club at around 14.50 a 12 pack. Sometimes it's cheaper than Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, doesn't make sense the IPA has a lot more ingredients to make the beer. Anyway I like it so I'll try this clone sometime.

All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 6.7 % ABV
Racer 5 Clone from BYO Magazine, modified a bit for my system efficiency and also for my Hop AA, I added a 30 minute addition of cascade because mine were lower AA than the BYO recipe so I added a latter addition instead of more at 60 minutes. Figured it couldn't hurt. Turned out great, really good example of West Coast IPA

Little Buffalo

Little Buffalo

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | Special/Best/Premium Bitter | 3.4 % ABV
This is loosely based on Cellarmakers "Little Lies" English Bitter. It's a low alcohol (3.2%) easy drinking beer that's about 21 IBU's. I made a couple of changes before brewing today. I added a half pound of amber malt and upped the IBU's about 6 to 27, all with changes to the last hop additions. I think amber malt will add another layer to the flavor of this beer and thought with this low gravity it could use it. I also decided to up the hop flavor and aroma a bit to work with the amber malt. ...

Cinnamon Apple Cider

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
Extract | 6 Gallon(s) | Common Cider | 5.2 % ABV
The apple juice is 6 gallons instead of pounds below. I ferment this low, 63 for a couple of weeks and then move to room temps, it keeps this really clean tasting. I bottle with AJC and let carb and pasteurize above 140 for 10 mins. Generally let this ferment for about 5 weeks, usually it takes that long to finish and clear up. I steep the cinnamon for as long as I ferment.

Quick Weizen for the float trip. I'm using a Danstar Munich Classic yeast which is supposedly the famous Weihenstephan Stain used in Germany. I'm looking for that classic flavor and will start fermentation around 64 and raise it gradually to 68 to 70 at the end of active fermentation.

Red Rooster IPA

Red Rooster IPA

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 6.2 % ABV
I was going to make a red IPA with old school craft beer hops, Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade, but I ran out of Columbus and wanted to keep them in the dry hop so i replaced Columbus in the boil with Comet. I sealed the Chinook before i got my dry hop ounce so I replaced that with an ounce of leftover Ahtanum. Comet is a very interesting hop and while i had my heart set on an early craft IPA, I think this will be just fine.

Tangerine IPA

Tangerine IPA

by Brumanchu on 3/8/2019
All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | American IPA | 6.2 % ABV
I enjoyed New Belgium's Citradelic and wanted to make something with Tangerine that was similar but not a clone. This grain bill is due to using some leftover portions of grain. If I make again it's 12 lb pale, 1 lb carapils, and 6oz of Crystal 120 and 4 to 5 ounces to acidulated malt for the mash. One other brew note, I used Imperial Yeast's Flagship yeast, the same strain as Cal Ale.

All Grain | 6 Gallon(s) | Southern English Brown | 4.8 % ABV
Recipe pieced together from several sources, malt, hops, gravity and lovibond coming from Lazy Magnolia's website. 13.5 P(1.055 O.G.) 5.2 P(1.021 F.G,) 15 Lovibond (19.2 SRM) and 4.39% ABV. It takes a ton of crystal malts to get to 15L, but then again the finishing gravity is very high so I'm going with it. I just chose Southern English Brown ale since it's in the ballpark as far as this beer, but it's really just a placeholder. I'm just guessing ratios on the crystal malt since the website is ...

Ithaca Flower Power Clone

Brew Session: Ithaca Flower Power Clone

by Brumanchu on 3/25/2019
 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation
Mash temp came in a little high, I stirred for a few minutes and brought it quickly down to 155.1, called it good and mashed for 90 minutes. Temp at the end of the mash was 154.2. Wort is beautiful light gold. I came in a bit heavy on volume, about a quart and .002 on gravity from the recipe. Smooth brew day, I'll ferment around 63 and ramp to 68 over the course of a week or so.
Coffee Stout

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation
Brewing this again. Very satisfying coffee strout. I am out of S-04 so I'm using S-05 and mashing higher, about 156 since it'll attenuate a bit more. Sitting at 157.1 for most of the mash. Ferment at at 63 for a couple of days and then ramp up a degree or so a day until it hits 68. Took a reading today, beer is at 1.022 tastes great. I'll add the coffee to this in the fermenter in a day or so and bottle about a week after.

Brewing for my annual canoe trip. Smooth brew day, temps and gravity good and the wort tasted nice. Kicking off fermentation at 63, I'll let it rise to 68 over the course of a few days. I'll move to secondary in a couple of weeks and cold crash before bottling.
