brewed last night. forgot to add the water agents smh. original recipe had me at 75% efficiency for 1050 OG, came out with 60% for 1040 smh. idk why i thought i would get 75, maybe because recently ive gotten higher efficiencies with double crushing the grain, but also this beer has a lot of flaked wheat and oats so i shouldve known it would be low.

Really if I had done my rule of thumb and left out the flaked stuff in the calculation i wouldve gotten to 75% on the rest of the grain bill.

revamping last years OFFSZN for rebrew as mommys bier 2.

  • adding water profile and brewing salts. using shared ward labs profile for henrico county for september 2020.
  • reducing nugget bittering addition from 0.5 for 60 to 0.4 for 45 to fall more in the middle of the accepted IBU range for this style
  • reducing 2row from 4.5 to 4.5lb to account for good efficiency last time, knock the beer abv down from 5.89 to 5.3 (also more in the accepted range)
  • added acidulated malt for mash pH
    .....should i scale this up to 10 gallons though???? might not have space in the fermentation chamber....

    Brew day
    Originally was supposed to hit 1049 on 5.5gal with 75%. Came out a little under vol, but 1055. Updated recipe as such.

    I thought I was going to come out way under because of how light the wort was. And it's a small grain bill compared to recent recipes.

    initial notes.
    notes / changes from original aha receipe :
  • swapped out yeast for wyeast.
  • this is 5.5 gallons. since its even grain and hop values just leave it like that and aim for 5.5
  • the spices are supposed to go in at flameout for only 5 mins in whirlpool - prob need to use a bag.
  • recipe calls for 90 min boil but i dont think that is necessary. * ferment at 63 for 7 days then free rise to 73 for remainder.
