Quadro-Smash! (WTF Al?)

Edited to reflect reality!  And again to reflect reality again!

 

UPDATE: fucked it all up.  Forgot which bucket was which, put the dry hops 68g for this one into the Sam Adams summer ale clone.  This one was quite a bit on the bitter side, but has mellowed as it aged, and is at least drinkable. 

Now the other beer, the Sam Adams Summer Ale clone, it came out really nice!  All that dry hop aroma somehow didn’t mess with the rather delicate and subtle aromas and flavors of the lemon peel and grains of paradise.

Well I never cared whether I mis-used words or butchered the English Language much, so I can name my beers whatever the heck I want!

Got the idea from a beeradvocate.com thread. Four base malts, equal portions, and four hops, equal portions, in a pale ale or IPA like beer with IBUs about 45-50.

3 lbs maris otter
3 lbs golden promise
3 lbs vienna
3 lbs munich

Hops will be a blend of Cascade, Citra, Willamette, and Bravo!  I gotta check the AA% for the exact numbers,, but the schedule wound up like this:

  • 40g bravo
    100g cascade
    80g willamette
    60g citra
    280g hops total
    28g at 60
    54g at 5
    140g at FO
    68g dry hop

Used Denny’s best yeast.  Wound up being far more of an IPA than I had previously planned.  Still – This one can’t help but be ginormously fantabulous!

The Amazing-ness of Dogfish Head!!

Let me just make a quick post here to give two mugs up to Dogfish Head Brewery!  I just love their beers!  I’m currently trading for both Worldwide Stout and 120 minute IPA.  In my opinion, these are the best beers this brewery has ever made, but it’s so hard to call it, you can feel free to disagree.

Anybody who ever trades with me, I want these beers!  I still cannot currently get them in my locale, which really sucks for me!!

I also really love Pangaea, Sah’tea, 60 and 90 minute IPA, Fort, My Antonia and Aprihop.  Plus so many others!  Go DFH!!
