Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator
  1. American Amber (Red) Ale with a sharp bite of citrusy hops.

  2. American 2-row pale ale malt, American Crystal 60L and Victory malt rounds out the grain bill. Mash temperatures in the range of 152°F to 154°F create a wort with a nice balance of fermentable and non-fermentable sugars. Sorachi Ace hops add a uniquely lemony bitterness, homegrown Cascade hops add grapefruit flavor and Citra whole leave hops added during the cool down add unique aroma. Yeast: White Labs WLP001(California Ale).

  3. Sword of Saint Peter is the first of 12 brews in the Twelve Apostles beer line. Each of the 12 brews are American Amber Ales. Experimentation with water profile, temperature variations including ambient temp., grain bill, hops varieties and yeast strains provide endless opportunity to evolve and improve this beer over the year.

  4. Cascade hops Alpha Acid was age adjusted in this recipe since the details of storage and pick date are a known variable.

  5. Yeast Lot # 1021675 Manufactured Nov. 23, 2015. QC cell count 1.49e9/ml
