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
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!
