BJCP compliant American Pale Ale as we emerge from our Covid bomb shelters and face diapers.....FREEDOM! Two notes of interest. First, this brew session will be done on a Spike HERMS Brewing System Second, ignore the yeast listed (Wyeast 1056), as it will NOT be used. Rather, I will be using OYL071 Lutra Kveik - Omega Yeast, which is not listed in Brewgr's dropdown. Accordingly, I've adjusted the attenuation to this yeast's 79% average. Particulars of this yeast are as follows: Attenuation: 75-82% Flocculation: Medium-High Alcohol Tolerance: 11% ABV Optimum Fermentation Temp: 68-95°F......that's right.....95°F! Cell Count: 150 Billion Strain Type: Norwegian Kveik This entire batch is a multifaceted test. First time brewing this recipe I've cobbled together.....(should be "crushable") First time brewing on a HERMS.... First use of this extraordinary yeast, and finally.... First time fermenting well beyond the usual 60s temperatures....per this yeast's listed parameters, I intend to ferment this 5.5-6 gallon batch in a non-air conditioned garage where the temperatures will fluctuate between 68° (eves) and 85° degrees during the day. LET'S DO THIS!!!

Notes:

From 1.053 to 1.010 = 5.5% ABV. Secondaried and taste-tested... Good mouth feel.....slightly sweet....present but not overwhelming hop scent and taste.....alcohol present, but not warm or overwhelming.....A very "crushable" beer. I can hardly wait to cold crash and carbonate; this beer is NOT going to last long. VERY pleased with yeast performance.
