Notes

3rd place in the "Carolina Quarterly Brew Off", specialty beer category. Awarded April 13, 2013.

Recipe was created for the wild card category of the brew contest... "beer with aromatic malt, turbinado sugar and cinnamon"

started with 2 gallons pre-boil. volume after boil was 0.8 gallons (lost 1.2 gallons to the boil.) Need to increase pre-boil volume to 2.75 gallons to end up with 1.5 gallons post-boil

measured OG was 1.080 after top-off

I will probably add a little wheat malt and/or oatmeal next time for a little more mouthfeel and head retention. Also suggest increasing (doubling?) the cinnamon, since I could not taste it. The 2 main "dings" on the scoresheet were

  1. mouthfeel a little too thin.
  2. cannot taste the cinnamon enough
