Drop the melanoidin for white IPL . To dark and to rich. Got any light munich or C 10 ?
I do, but I already had been mashing for an hour. Made a good point though and I'll have to revisit the recipe next time.
It will make a good beer as is, just not white.
I've been out sick since Wednesday. So sorry I didn't respond sooner.
Hope you are feeling a lot better!
Thanks. I'm not entirely well, but I am finally out of bed. You know I'm sick when I haven't had a cup of coffee or a beer since Tuesday and haven't touched a computer or a phone since Wednesday!
Sometimes ya just need a cup of tea and a blankly. Good to hear improvement.
No worries, I figured you had more pressing matters.
Apparently I'm not getting notified of responses in my email so completely neglected this.
I brewed it last friday. First time I've used melanoidin. Perhaps if I brew it again I will try swapping it out. Not too sure about their choice of yeast either. Given my novice experience level though and this being published in a reputable magazine I am inclined to try it as is first.
I will probably keg it after two weeks and let it carb for a week.
Yeah I have it fermenting in my garage until it's due to be brought to room temperature. It's chugging away out there though, I made some changes to my version and used Munich Lager yeast, I might use 34/70 going forward though just cause that stuff is really tolerant.
Just poured my first glass. Definitely taste the Wyeast 3944. Does not feel right for an IPA. Also a little dark so dropping the melanoidin is probably a wise choice for a second brew.
Mine is sitting in a keg in my garage at 8C "lagering". I'll have to try it soon.
Tried it yet?
Actually I've pounded most of the keg. Really nice beer, not very clear but really nice flavour. I think a BRY-97 or something and just making it an IPA would probably be the way to go though.
