Looking for a good solid recipe (BM20)

Unread postby rocketman » Sun May 04, 2014 9:25 am

Hello! / Hej!

Looking for a good solid recipe to brew on my BM20, some sort of pale ale or similar, something I can't screw up :-) If you got a beersmith file to upload that would be even better.

I did my second brew yesterday and screwed up my volumes again..

Cheers!

Here is a recipe for an APA on Beersmith.

It will give you the volumes I use for an 80 minute boil.
Your figures may vary but it will give you a start.

The style is listed as an Australian Pale Ale in the guidelines but that is only because I didn't want a stronger beer.

It includes my water adjustments but your situation may not be the same and you could use US05 yeast if you want as well.

Here is another one you may like;

As you will see the grain amounts and the water volumes are very close to the recipe above.

If you don't have a lagering fridge you could use S189 yeast and ferment at low ale temperatures.
This yeast works fine with those temps.
Note;
The hops are T45 pellets not T90 so don't just go on the amounts that I used but adjust the recipe to achieve the IBU's from mine to yours unless you have T45 pellets

Thank you! I just got my fridge and setting up BrewPi (STC-1000 as backup) but I think I have to learn how to
walk before i start to run so thinking of brewing ales and do a couple of them and see if I get consistency.

Cheers!

So have you worked out the total amount of water that you will need for that recipe?

I think that it will be:
  • Fill kettle with 26.1 L
  • Sparge with 3.37 L (78C)
  • Volume into boil: 23.7 L
  • Total water: 29.47 L

Did I get it right? :)

You should be pretty close with those figures.
It will now depend on what you want to leave to trub in the kettle after the boil.
I generally leave between 3 to 4 litres but I am one who likes crystal clear wort into my fermenter.

That looks a good recipe and a proven one if you have done it before. :drink:
Have you tried it with an American Ale yeast?

The Beer is great! So if I do something wrong I will taste it right away.
Never tried American Ale yeast, I have tried US-05 but not the same.
(not especially fond of dry yeast, but that was what I got at the time).

Hope to do this brew the coming weekend!

Cheers

Let us know how it comes out.

I started reading the 105 pages in your link to HBT but it got a bit much after a while.
I have done an all Citra apa but not quite to the Ibu's of that one. I started my hop additions at 30 mins.
I was extremely pleased with it and I might give your recipe a try in the future.
What I did notice when I brewed mine was it had a "catty" smell during early fermentation, but that went away and it came out one of the best beers that I had brewed. When I first poured it you could smell the "passionfruit" from a metre away. :lol:
:drink: :beer:

Hahaha I know what you mean by 'catty' smell. Never thought it could come out so exotic fruity in the end.. I will keep you posted!

The beer came out great! Cloudy (possible chill haze) but tastes wonderful! I have a BIAB batch to compare to
and this one came out on top. :beer:

Thats good news rocketman,

Do you use a kettle fining?

I use BrewBrite by mixing 1 teaspoon ( 4 gramms ) in about 100 mils of water and tip it into the boils at 5 mins before the end.
You can visibly see the proteins coagulate and clump together.
