Notes

96.7% Canadian Rahr 2-Row 3.3% Briess Victory Note: mash pH adjusted to 5.4 using small charge of acidulated malt against 2-row portion above (may not be required, depends on water chemistry and base malt) 13g CaSO4 added to mash Collect enough volume for 17.8 degrees Plato after boil (depends on % utilization & brewhouse efficiency) 10% evaporation = about 16.2 Plato concentrating to 17.8 Plato 90 minute boil. 5 grams of CaSO4 added to boil with first hops On our system most IBU comes from generic super high alpha (Summit/Nugget/Apollo/Bravo/Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus) T90 pellets and hop extract at the following ratios: Pellets: contribute 8.6 lbs. of alpha in 85 BBLS Supercritical CO2 hop extract: 11 lbs. of alpha in 85 BBLS Both above added at 90 minutes with CaSO4 Middle addition: 22 lbs. Cascade and 22 Chinook with Whirlfloc (at 40 ppm) at 12 minutes remaining in boil Whirlpool addition (0 minutes): 44 lbs. Simcoe % utilization and fermentation losses vary quite a bit from system to system, so take into consideration Note of Interest: the bitterness alpha all originally came from Simcoe but in 2007 (“year of the manufactured shortage”) it had to be re- placed with the generic high alpha but the difference is negligible… Aerate to 20 ppm O2 and London Ale pitch at 4 lbs./BBL (thick slurry) or 18 million cells per ml An FG of 3.6-3.8 is best to simulate final flavor and alcohol so yeast viability and vitality is essential Benefits from long warm rest after yeast removal (“transfer to secondary”) Very important: Dry Hop Bill Columbus: 1.2 lbs./bbl Simcoe: 0.6 lbs./bbl Chinook: 0.3 lbs./bbl **Please carefully evaluate quality of the Columbus as it tends to vary since it is a commodity hop; we select ours very carefully for this reason and ignore alpha, strictly aroma considered**
