Ingredients (All Grain11 gal)

  • 16 lbs 2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    Mild malty flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Base malt for all beer styles • Smoother, less grainy flavor than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slightly higher yield than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slight lower protein than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

    For a desired malty, nutty flavor. Lagers, Oktoberfests and bock beer.

  • 1 lbs 2-Row Caramel Malt 40L; Briess

    2-Row Caramel Malt 40L; Briess

    Sweet, Caramel, Toffee. S Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • 2-Row Caramel Malt 40L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden to light red color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

Turned out pretty well, however a little bitter. Could back down to 35 IBU, and also back down on the hop flavor additions. Maybe stick with cascade throughout.
