Well...this started life as a full on NEIPA but then I noticed I was a 3kg bag of base malt missing. This should still be a very tasty brew and one that
is session-able. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.
First attempt at mash-out 75c for extra 20 mins. Grain needs to be at 75c for 10 mins but hard to tell, so will let the wort heat to 72c and then upto 75c for another 10 mins.
NEIPA mix hops are from Cross My Loof Homebrew supplies. Mixture of Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe. 13.9AA.
OG very surprisingly at 1.042...astonishing.
So Mash Out by raising temps after Mashing gained me 10% efficiency. Will have to see if this has had any impact on flavour.
Added High Krausen dry hop...but before fermentation has started (I am going away so have no choice) . We shall see how this goes.
Dry hop addition on Day 10. Gravity at 1.010 so almost there. Raised ferm temps to 18.5, perhaps 19.5 tomorrow. Sample tasted perfect. Nice full mouthfeel, a bite but not too much and very fruity.
Dropped temp back to 18.5c on Day 12 as too near 20c
Day 13 sample 1.008 so bang on. Will test again tomorrow. If no movement bottle.
Day 14. 1.008 bottled 37 500ml bottles. Noticing more trub flow down the bottling wand and into the bottles these last few brews. Will be adding a re-ciculation step to my next brew day.
Also noticed a significant amount of added bitterness in the gravity sample after my last dry hop. It was a large addition but I always considered that at 18c no ibu's would be added. This beer may well end up more of an IPA than an NEIPA if this reflects the final product.
