Tasting notes - lots of tropical aromas and flavors - guava, passion fruit, papaya.

I think I may have overdone the Amarillo additions :roll:

Tweaks for this recipe?

It finished @ 1.021 and has a bit more body than I would like. I would use more attenuating yeast next time I get around to brew this.

the color seems to have darkened up, and seems very close the the 90min IIRC, cant go wrong with too much amarillo :beer:

Thank you gentlemen :beer:

Will try to pick up an original DFH 90-mins bottle and do a side-by-side comparison.

In the double mashing thread I posted an idea, I have not gotten round to trying this, but as you are willing to stick by the BM for the hop additions, maybe this could work for you also...

The idea is, lift the malt pipe from the bottom with some blocks to allow circulation without the pumps.
Fill the maltpipe to the brim and lay the top plat just on top to help water distribution.
Then use the tap, and a container to circulate the wort by hand just let it run from the tap into the container and pour on top of the malt pipe top plate.
This way I think it should be possible to add a couple of kg to the malt pipe, and you may not need to do a double mash?

Just an idea...

Cheers
:cheers:


..... or run wort from the tap and use a pump to continuously return via the top of the malt pipe the same way you would recirculate in a 3v system.
Easier on the arms and shoulders :cheers:

Hey RobW,

No thats not the same as a 3v. That method will not mash efficiently.

The BM has the malt pipe and drawing wort from the tap only draws wort from outside the grain bed and mash tun thus retruning this to the top of the malt pipe would just overflow the malt pipe and be recirculating wort that is not passing through the grain bed.

How is it different from what Twonky proposes to do manually?

In my old 3V system I would draw wort from under the mashtun screen (= the wort outside the maltpipe in the Braumeister) and then recirculate it into the mashtun (= the maltpipe contents).
If the pump is throttled to adust the correct flow rate it shouldn't overflow the malt pipe.

Still have not got round to trying the manual circulation method with elevated malt pipe....
I was glad to get a brew day in two weeks ago and did a simple ESB++ and ended up with 85% efficiency ;-)

Was thinking about doing something heavy on the thus currently evolving yeast bed...
But that will probably be something dark, for the dark days around X-mass....

Might be an opportunity to try this....

If I do I will certainly post the result!
Still it is nice to see someone noticed that post :beerbang:

Cheers
