New house brew day.

Postby Rolfster » Thu Dec 06, 2018 00:37

So I moved house a couple of weeks ago and am finally in a position to brew!

Doing an extract for ease and no chill as we have a water meter.
Got 7kg of lme and 1kg of dme (both pale)
This will be going into 50 liters of water.
I'll be bittering with a little bit of warrior. Then adding a smidge of simcoe towards the end. Then at flame out a big wack of citra and mosaic.
Then once it's cooled more citra and mosaic.
It's going to be split between 2 fv to make an Earl grey ipa and an APA.
I'm going to add 1.5l of cold steeped Earl Grey tea (40g) to one fermentor and leave the other one to be dry hopped.
Looking forward to a short brew day!

Waters just gone on to heat up. Think I'm going to do a mini mash to add in.

After an hour of heating the water has gone from 12 to 85 degrees.
Mslt extract is in. And hops have gone in.... Only 10g of them as I'll be no chilling most bitterness will come from the late addition hops.

Looks like it's about 1.050.
Which is just about right!

I've just topped it up with a liter of boiling water to make sure it doesn't get too strong.
Gonna take another reading in a minute.

Happy new house - we’ve also just moved home last weekend. I was thinking of an extract brew too, just for quickness as I’ve got loads of ‘man jobs’ to do at the weekend, so a full brewday is out.

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).

No two ways about it. Today was an easy brew day!
It's the way forward for a time like moving house.

I was all finished by about 2.
I added the flame out hops to some no chill cubes. (10g simcoe, 25g mosaic and 25g citra to each cube) Filled them up with wort and rolled the around.

Cooked tea, picked up the kids from school, played some football. Then just. Before tea (about 4:30) added some more hops to the cubes. (25g mosaic and 25g citra to each cube)
They are in the cellar now and I'll get them fermenting tomorrow.

I forgot to say my final gravity was 1.050,so it should finish up being just over 5%.
This us just about where I wanted it and am quite happy as the amount of water I used was a bit of a stab in the dark!

Do you have a combie heat exchanger Rolfster? If your worried about the coolant water a big heat exchanger works really well. Your cold tap is running in the time it takes to drain your boiler.
