Postby 46philh » Wed Apr 12, 2017 19:09

4.58 Marris otter
0.3 crystal
0.2 torrified wheat

35g first gold

30g Willamette 15mins.
30g Willamette flame out.

ABV 4.48.

What do you think ?

If i say hit 5% ABV on a 23 how much water to bring it down to about 4.5%.? still trying to sort out my efficiency

Similar to something I brewed a few times, without the crystal. Looks ideal! First gold is known for a green tea like bitterness and it's quite nice. Take your gravity reading pre ferment and use this formula to calculate new volume:

Current OG / New desired OG X current batch volume

So if you get 23L at 1.050 and you want 1.045 then do 50 / 45 X 23.

Add your water pre ferment or it'll contain oxygen that the yeast can't clear up.

I'd be tempted to use FIrst Gold at flameout and Willamette for bittering. The flavour of the two together as later aroma additions will give you a good burst of flavour.

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%).
