Brewed up my 4th batch today - Goldie Hops - recipe as below:
Partial mash with 6oz. 2 Row and 8oz. Munich at 150 degrees for 35 mins...sparged into 160 degree water for 15 mins and blended back together.
In the boil:
1 lb. Wheat DME
1 lb. Extra Light DME
1 lb. Light DME
3.3 lb. Light Malt Extract
1 lb. Light Candy Sugar
.5oz each Amarillo (9.3 AA) and Simcoe (12 AA) at 60mins.
.5oz each Amarillo and Simcoe at 20mins.
.5oz Amarillo at 15 mins.
BrewVint Yeast Fuel capsule at 15 mins.
.5oz Amarillo at 10 mins.
.25 tsp Irish Moss at 10 mins.
1oz Amarillo at 5 mins.
1lb light candy sugar went in at 5 mins as well
OG around 1.080 to 1.085
Fermeting with Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale smack pack that was bulging nicely.
Going to rack to secondary and dry hop with 3 oz more Amarillo. Have some medium toast oak chips as I've enjoyed oaked IPA's before...but I'm on the fence about using them in secondary....any thoughts / opinions??
