H.M.S. Palate Destroyer
« on: August 24, 2014, 08:12:00 PM »
2nd batch following my brewing hiatus... making it a big one:

Not sure the alpha acids listed on my hops are still accurate, as they are 18 months to 2 years old, but here's beast:

Final batch size: 10.5 US gallons

28# 2-row
5# Vienna
2# White wheat malt
1# Cara-Munich II

Mash at 150F with 3 tbsp gypsum and 12 gallons Fredericton water. Sparge with 7.5 gallons.

and now the hops:

4oz Chinook @60min
1oz Centennial @60min
2oz galena @60min

1oz ea of Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, and Amarillo @15min
1oz ea of Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, and Amarillo @1min

1oz ea of Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, and Amarillo @dry hop, per 5gal keg

According to beer smith hop age calculator;
Amarillo looses 20% alpha every 6 month so averaging 21 months, an 8.4 % Amarillo would be 6.6%
Chinook looses 42%/6month so a 13% would be 7% after 21m.
Centennial looses 40%/6m so 10% would be 5.5
Cascade looses 50%/6m so 5.5 would be 2.5.

considering the amount you put in, you should still be just fine.

Cool, thanks.

I ended up putting in an extra ounce of Centennial just in case

Its good to be back in the brewing game.
Quaffing some now... soooooo hoppy. Tastes like a pine forest flooded with a tidal wave of citrus and a hint of caramel. Smells of pine, more pine, various citrus, tropical fruit, and more pine.

nom nom nom.
