HomeBrewDog Punk IPA

Unread postby Muddy » Mon Jan 23, 2017 6:06 pm

I'm not a fan of clones, preferring to try and and design my own to suite my wide taste when it comes to beer. I have relented though. As a fan of Punk IPA I could not pass up the opportunity to give this a go in my BM 20L

I used the standard Recipe 1 and plugged in the recipe in to BeerSmith to cross reference the recipe numbers.

Started the brew around 8.30am and the internal temp on the BM when I turned it on was -1.5c

Added the 25 lines of water kicked off the brew cycle at 2.5c. With the thermal jacket it only took 35 mins to get to the 38c mash in and all other subsequent temperature rises were similarly quick.

Est Pre Boil OG 1045, actual Pre Boil OG 1044 :D

Boil 75 mins

Chill time to 20c using an emersion coil only took 30 mins

Est Start OG 1053, actual OG 1052 :D

Yeast pitched and now after 24 hours I now have a nice ferment going

Looking to finish at 1011 for 5.4% then dry hop for 4 days with 6 different hops in a secondary at 14c in my newly set up brew fridge.

Will bottle and then condition around 12c for at least 28 days

Hit 1.011 after 6 days

Tasted the sample and have to say it is not bad.

Transferred to secondary for the 4 days dry hopping at 14c

Will bottle in 330ml bottles and condition for 4 weeks at 12c

Bottled but very hazy and loads of sludge from the pellet hops. I've lost about 1 1/2 litres in the secondary.

The aroma was very close to what I would have expected.

I will condition at 12c for 30 days and keep an eye to see if it starts to clear.

Ok I'm impatient, I've sampled a bottle. :drink:

Its ok, still very hazy, but little sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Served well chilled the aroma was very close to that of the real thing.

A little harsh on the bitter side on first sip but that mellowed as I sampled more and the floral hops for which Punk is noted were evident.

Hoping a that a long conditioning will redeem this brew.

Not sure Brewdog would serve this as a cloudy ale, but if it hits the spot I'm not going to worry :D

12 deg is a very low temp to condition at. The sugar needs a descent temp to work at. It may take a while to carb.

Been off line for a while...but still brewing

I disagree that 12c is too low to condition at.

It is a basic cellar temp, and from all books that I have read other than lagers,this type of brew should be conditioned at 12c. The results were fine, the beer being nicely carbonated even after a shorter period of time that I had set for conditioning.

After bottling I keep my beer at 20C for a week to get the refermentation started and then condition at 12Cfor 2 or 3 weeks.

The Trappist Monasteries - which brew stronger beer than me - keep their newly bottled beer in a warm room for 2 to 3 weeks at 20C to 23 C before cellaring.

I have just started to drink my Punk clone, it's really good but needs a little more dry hops than I used.
Fermented @ 18c with S-05 for 10 days
Secondary @ 18C with dry hops for 5 days
Crashed to 4C for 5 days to drop out and clear
Racked into bottling bucket, carbonated @ 2.5, bottled
Stored @ 18C for 21 days to convert all remaining sugar
Conditioned @ 12C for 21 days, this clears and compacts
Into fridge for 3 days before drinking.

All my steps are controlled by an ALVA connected to a rewired larder fridge, and I always carbonate in bottles at the same temp as I ferment at

WOW you have an ALVA on a fridge!

PS. I agree with you - I always carbonate in bottles [1/2 tsp] at the same temp as I ferment, but sadly without an ALVA.

I had an ALVA on my old system before I bought a BM, but rather than sell it on I kept it for fermenting.
I have programmed it for a BM, but can't make my mind up if it's worth buying the necessary plugs and sockets required.

I have an original BM20. If my controller ever died , the ALVA would be my next purchase.

Can't say I am a fan of the new controllers.

If you ever get bored with it.......
