it all went into kegs, but we plan to bottle some from the kegs eventually, low tech (beergun- actually pretty high tech, but slow), probably as 75cl. the cafe owns most of the beer, and the owners also run the biggest bottle shop in town so we have an obvious outlet, and hopefully some bottles (and probably a few kegs) will escape the confines of our little town, but i know very little about beer distribution!

We're officially on tap! featuring the lovely enamel tap plate made by my father. The first 30L keg was given out free at the release party. Finished in quick order. People were happy.

beech smoked rauchmalt 20-30% (depending on the malt, for weyermann's which is not that smoky go 30%. for less, increase the pale % to compensate this batch used a smokier maltster from bamberg the name of which escapes me at the moment so we used ~25%)
70 ebc crystal 9%
munich 6%
chocolate (900ebc) 5%
turbinado sugar 4%
carafa special III 4%
=101%, deal with it!
EKG, 23 IBU, 60 min
willamette, 8 IBU, 30 min
EKG + willamette, 0.75ish g/L each, @ flameout
(this is on a 1200L system with a long whirlpool time so maybe move the flameout back to 10 min?)


Im going to attempt to brew this over Christmas.
Here is a handy tool in Beersmith that I didnt know was present to work out recipes using percentages as above: http://beersmith.com/building-a-recipe- ... rcentages/

@dinnerstick - at what point in the boil did you add the sugar? Also have you any updated thoughts on this recipe since posting?

sugar added around the end of boil. maybe 5 minutes before flameout. nope, i don't have much to add, i really like the recipe. it's been on tap for a good few months now, and it, as expected, splits opinion. love or hate, not many in between!

Great.. I will hopefully know soon.

Only change i have made is that I have split the pale malt addition into 50% pale malt and 50% Maris Otter because that was what I had. I was going to use 100% Maris Otter. But i think overall that in a beer with this much character that the base malt type isnt going to have a huge impact on flavour.

Im planning to do 25l batch
1. I will keg condition 9l of it (i have a small cornelius keg)
2. I will bottle condition the rest of it

my homebrew versions of this used maris otter, but in the brewery version we settled for holland malt pale for practical reasons beyond my control. given the choice i'd go with MO but i agree the base malt is not going to make a huge difference in this beer, and with 50% MO an 50% other pale malt you're grand

@Dinnerstick - what do you think the effect of using the Turbinado sugar has on this recipe? I am thinking of simply using grain in my mash to replace the sugar. Maybe more pale malt or a lager malt. What are your thoughts?

it is there to thin the beer out, so it's 8.5% but rather drinkable, rather than the body of a barley wine. In designing the recipe I made one 'super thick' version which omitted the sugar (for malt) and had rolled oats as well, just to see what that would be like. It was (is) incredibly rich, sweet, thick. Sippable by the small glass but not at all quaffable. So much so that I have had a half keg of it sitting around for more than a year.

It's a bit of double-posting, as I also have a thread about the festival, but i can't resist, I'm as excited as a pointer sister. This beer just took the one and only prize in the Utrecht Bierbrouwer's Festival 2015, the coveted (is it coveted? who knows) Most Appreciated Beer award, awarded by a panel of well known beer judges!

For any locals, this beer is now back on tap at Kafe Belgie, the second batch. It will be celebrated on monday night 15 june (short notice, and it'a monday, oh well) with a little tap takeover by de Kromme Haring, Rooie Dop, and Ruig, featuring some new releases and weird collaborations.

@dinnerstick I see your beer got a recommendation (and some pictures too) on another forum on which I am a member http://www.nationalhomebrewclub.ie/foru ... opic=10158
