Simple bitter

Post by chris2012 » Wed Jul 05, 2017 5:02 pm

Just brewed this today:

It came out at 1.040 which is lower than I wanted, but will add more malt next time, shouldn't have tried to extract as much wort from the mash as I did.

5 kg marris otter
300g crystal - 60ebc
52g Fuggle – 5.8% AA – 34.5 IBU – 60 min
13g Fuggle – 5.8% AA – 2.6 IBU – 10 min
60 minute boil, 2 hour mash.

Obtained around 27l I think from the mash, which was probably a bit too much ;)

Some piccys:

All in the fridge now :) This is the first time using the fridge to ferment in, fingers crossed it goes ok.

The element in your peco looks charred. Could have scorched the wort...

Yeah it's gone black, I've used a copper scourer on it and used citric, so it's as clean as I could make it alas.

At some point I'm going to switch to LWD or induction.
