NotesI am combining different clone sources to create my own Strong Ale/Old Ale inspired by a favorite, Theakston’s Old Peculiar.
2017-10-07: Brew day. Yeast starter begun yesterday early and looks good - maybe 1.25L instead of 1L.
Dough-in with 3G 3.5Q liquor and 11.75 lbs grain for 1.35 ratio resulted in 5G mash. OK but about the limit here n the 7.5G MT.
That went pretty well. Yeast added and air lock in place at 15:39 after starting roughly 08:15. Bubbling a few hours later!
2017-10-08 10:53: It’s going gangbusters and I needed blowoff tube. Pics posted to Facebook. Carboy temp is around 73°F and the room is still at 70°F with a target room temp of 66°F.
2017-10-08 15:28: Temp up to 76°F. Too warm. I gave it a wet shirt to wear. Blowoff tube is still needed. Room temp has dropped to 69°F.
2017-10-08 21:45: I added a wet tshirt to the carboy and have a fan blowing on low and I have the room temp now down to 68°F and the carboy down to 73°F. Acceptable but not so much so that I am going to stop the fan or pull off the tshirt.
2017-10-09 15:20: Room temp at 68°F and carboy continues to drop steady and is now at roughly 69°F. I don’t think I need any cooling anymore.
2017-10-10 07:43: Room temp back down to target 66°F and carboy down to 68°F with considerably slower bubbling.
2017-10-11: Bubbling has significantly slowed. I will have to get SG later and rack to secondary along with dry hopping as planned.
2017-10-13: Racked to secondary - I need that primary. SG is firstname.lastname@example.org°F or 1.015.
1oz Fuggles added to secondary in Star Sanned bag per instructions.
2017-10-24: Racking to keg. FG via hydrometer is email@example.com°F or 1.014. Same measurement with refractometer after using BeerSmith to correct.
2017-10-26: Some confusion as I look back over the ingredients. They currently claim that the base malt is Mapleton 2 Row. I think this was actually brewed with Gleneagle Maris Otter. It’s pretty tough to say now except that I had the issue with the new Maplton 2 Row on the 10th and this was brewed three days before. I believe that the Maplton was replacing Maris Otter. The batches on either side are Maris Otter. It just about has to be Maris Otter. I am going to update the ingredients.
