I home brewed back in what feels like the dark ages in the mid 1990s. I never had a lot of success, but as I got older and more patient, I gave it another try. So here I am about 10 months into brewing again and I'm on beer number 12 in the fermenter. I started with extract kits, mostly idiot proof. Then moved into all grain kits, more challenging, but I got better. And now I'm playing with making my own recipe. First one came out really well (different that below) and now I'm looking for a base all grain beer to test single hops. Not exactly a SMASH, but close. What do you think of this? 3 gallon Pale Ale 5# 2-row 1# Crystal Malt 40 1# Carapils 150 deg mash 60 min 60 min boil This calculates to 1.063 and using Voss Kveik I get about 6.5 abv. First plan to use Motueka 6.2AA, with .5 oz at 60 .5 oz at 15 1 oz dry hop at day 4 for 7 days. 30 IBU The reason I'm doing this is I have a subscription to Yakima Hops 'Hop Box'. Every 3 months I get 8 different hops, 2 oz each. Some support single hop recipes, and some mix well. I was using DME for my test beers and adding some steeping grains, but I want to go all grain. Comments, suggestions? Hops I have to play with: Wakatu Azacca Mosaic Enigma Motueka Galaxy Citra Vic Secret Ella HPA 016 (new from Austrailia) Rakau Pacific Jade See the dilemma I have? LOL!
