My notes: My hops age adjusted should be right around the 37.3 IBU spec... I'm doing water adjustment, some Burton water salts... ------- Use any clean bittering hop for ~25 IBU. Adjust EKG whirlpool hops up if introduced below 190F. Antcipated range 180F - 160F. Use hop age tool. Adjust H2O if required. Don't change grain bill except to reach 1.047. Don't change yeast. Don't change aroma hops. Except to increase if not using whilpool above 190F. ---------- 2015 Science Project #1, DOH Special Bitter. Enclosed you will find the BeerSmith 2 file, but you must adapt it to your brewing system. Currently this is an all grain recipe based on 72% efficiency.
DO NOT change the grain bill ratio, the yeast and the flavor/aroma hops. You are looking for:
89.5% Crisp Maris Otter
10.5% Weyermann Caramunich I
152F mash
1.047 SOG
1.010 FOG
8.9 SRM
37.3 IBU
~25 IBU of clean bittering hops
~12 IBU of East Kent Golding (EKG) flavor and aroma hops.
Use hop age adjustment tool for accurate bittering.
Adjust hops if using whirlpool hops below 190F Yeast for this project is WLP 002 English Ale from Fullers.
Wyeast 1968 London Ale is also from Fullers
Safale S04 is a last resort substitute as it is Whitbread dry.
Muntons Ale yeast might be the Fullers strain. Good luck and if all goes well, we will make the same beer!
