Improper Job

Post by Fingar » Wed Jul 29, 2020 4:21 pm

Hi Folks.

This is a 23L recipe I cobbled together during lockdown as I had an excessive amounts of Amarillo and West Yorkshire Wyeast 1469. It is very loosely based on a recipe for Snozzle’s Proper Job (PJ) – emphasis on ‘very loosely’ – which I found a few years ago on the interweb; the PJ recipe used Cascade hops and US05 yeast, and many people advocate using the yeast from bottled conditioned brews. The timings for the hop additions are the same as my PJ recipe.

The aim was to achieve ABV 5.2% (OG 1057/1018). Mash for 90 minutes, boil for 60 minutes, fermented at 20 degs c.

Grain:
5.0kg Maris Otter
500g Torrefied Wheat

Hops:
Chinook – AA 10.9%
Fuggles - AA 4.4%
Amarillo – AA 8.6%

Chinook – 13g – 60 minutes – IBU 14.3
Fuggles – 13g – 60 minutes – IBU 5.7

Chinook – 8g – 30 minutes – IBU 6.7
Fuggles – 11g – 30 minutes – IBU 3.8
Amarillo – 10g – 30 minutes – IBU 6.7

Chinook – 9g – 15 minutes – IBU 4.9
Fuggles – 23g – 15 minutes – IBU 5
Amarillo – 23g – 15 minutes – IBU 10

Fuggles 25g at TO
Amarillo 25 g at TO

Bottled with 4.1g cane sugar / litre.

Enjoy... I know I did.

Cheers... Fingar

I shall have to file this away to have a go at once my current plans are completed. This weekend, at my son's request, we're doing a batch of Brewdog's Punk IPA and once that's clear of the fermentation cabinet I have my eye on a batch of Seymour's Hobgoblin. Do you have a link to the original PJ recipe? That would be a good one to try as well.

Hi James - the recipe was originally posted by Troutman47 on JBK. The link can be found here. I replaced the Willamette with Fuggles.

Cheers... Fingar
