Notes

Batch #1 - 28/6/20 - (Eff.: 70 %, Att.: %, ABV: 5.1%)

  • Pre-boil (post sour) volume - 26 L (Using mash paddle measure)
  • Mash vol.: 31 L, Pre-boil vol.: 26 L, Batch vol.: 23 L
  • OG: 10 (Tilt), 1072 (Refract.)
    Pre-soured with 12 ml Lactic acid 88%, Vaalia French Vanilla Pro-biotic yoghurt, left for 48 hr at 40 C. It was cold and the wort cooled slowly to 30 C despite heat wrap, may have affected sourness.
    30/6/20 - x2 re-hydrated Nottingham yeast packs in 25 C, 220 ml water with a hint of Fermaid AT as the wort is sour and some viability may be lost.
    4/7/20 - Ferm temp upped to 19.5 C, cold days so slow to rise.
    5/7/20 - SG: 1034
    6/7/20 - SG: 1033
    9/7/20 - SG: 1032, 18.5 C, tastes of sweet orange and smells slightly like funky raw grain, medium body, not bad. Cold crashed to 1.5 C for 2 days.
    Trying to keep the initial flavour additions a little restrained so that I could add more after kegging.
    11/7/20 - Fined with gelatin (1/2 tsp in 1/4 cup water warmed in microwave to 65 C) poured into fermenter.
    12/7/20 - Kegged and carbed. Fermenter had a strong cinnamon aroma but not much flavour.
    14/7/20 - Tastes strongly of apple juice/cider, a hint of sour.
    18/7/20 - Tastes strongly of apple pie filling with not much cinnamon or vanilla. Added another 40 ml of cinnamon tisane through PRV.
    23/7/20 - Added 6 ml of Vanilla (Madagascar) through PRV.
    3/8/20 - Added another 5 ml of Vanilla (Madagascar) and 20 ml of cinnamon tisane through PRV, still heavy on the apple with only a hint of cinnamon at the back.
    7/8/20 - Added 30ml cinnamon tisane, poured off a bottle for camping.
    23/8/20 - Added 60 g Muscavado sugar and 50 g brown sugar dissolved in 200 ml of boiling water to keg to try and add biscuit/crumble flavour. Next time add more biscuit in the malt bill.
    8/11/20 - Ditched it, couldn't get it to taste right. Sad face

    Cinnamon tisane added 30 ml (syringe) before cold crash with vanilla and apple. Made using 3 cinnamon sticks (photo) in 300 ml of water, soaked for 30 min then boiled for 10 min and allowed to cool.
    Vanilla extract (photo) added 20 ml through airlock.
    Apple Slices - Pie Fruit (photo) 500 g added in mesh hop sock.


    Substitutes:
  • Crisp Malt Naked Oats in for Golden Naked Oats
  • Gladfield Light Crystal in for Cara-Amber
  • 27.5 L pre first (15 min) boil.
