I love brewing beer and drinking some! (not too much, honest) My problem is consuming the beer I make. 20L (40 x 500ml bottles) is a lot of beer to drink. Even when sharing the stuff. I limit my beer consumption to 7 bottles per week, plus a few or so pints each week in the pub. It can take me 4-5 weeks to get through 40 bottles of whatever beer I have. Also I would like more variety. So... My plan is to brew 2 different beers at the same time, then scientifically (HaHa) mix them into 6 batches (six beers) that meet style guidelines (probably / almost / nearly!). I've spent days sweating blood and tears (a few minutes really) getting the 2 base recipes right. Beer Recipe One: American Blonde Ale (Ferment for 5 days) ABV: 4.3% IBU: 21 SRM: 3.8 Mash: 67c Ferment: 19c Hops Willamette 60/30/15 Yeast: American Ale II 1272 Pale Ale Malt Low Colour: 81% Pale Ale Malt: 8% CaraMalt: 7% Wheat Malt: 4% Beer Recipe Two: English IPA (Ferment for 5 days) ABV: 5.8% IBU: 50 SRM: 7.8 Mash: 67c Ferment: 19c Hops Northern Brewer 60 Goldings 30/15 Yeast: London Ale 1028 Pale Ale Malt Low Colour: 44% Pale Ale Malt: 44% CaraMalt: 5% Crystal 90: 3% Wheat Malt: 4% Now for the mixing of beers into 6 secondary vessels... Dry hop maybe! (2 weeks, then rack) Vessel 1. 100% Beer One - American Blonde Ale (not blended) - ABV 4.3 - IBU 21 - SRM 3.8 Vessel 2. 100% Beer Two - English IPA (not blended) - ABV 5.8 - IBU 50 - SRM 7.8 Vessel 3. 80% Beer One / 20% Beer Two - American Blonde Ale - ABV 4.6 - IBU 27 - SRM 4.6 Vessel 4. 60% Beer One / 40% Beer Two - British Golden Ale - ABV 4.9 - IBU 32 - SRM 5.4 Vessel 5. 40% Beer One / 60% Beer Two - American Pale Ale - ABV 5.2 - IBU 38 - SRM 6.2 Vessel 6. 20% Beer One / 80% Beer Two - English IPA - ABV 5.5 - IBU 44 - SRM 7 This gives me 6L (10 pints) approx of each beer. Do you guys think my plan is any good?
