13 pounds Breiss gold extract (bulk)
No grain in this batch, Larry's was out of the pils ME, so I went with gold as the next lightest. Since the gold is already darker, I left the grain out of this batch since it is mostly for color anyway.
|1 oz Nugget||60 min|
|1 oz Cascade||60 min|
|1 oz Cascade||15 min|
|1 oz Mt. Hood||15 min|
|2 tsp Irish Moss||15 min|
Dry hops: after primary fermenation, I transferred to two 5 gal buckets for secondary. Added 1 oz Mt. Hood to one bucket, 1 oz Cascade to the other.
Wyeast 1056, American ale yeast, harvested from batch 26.
Transfer to secondary: 19 Jan 2006 and dry hopped.
Kegged: 26 Jan 2006, primed with 1/3 C white sugar in each keg.
22 Jan 2006, minor panic (!) this 10 gallons will be ready for kegging this week, and I've only got 1 empty keg. Fortunately, I was able to polish off the last of batch 26 during the football playoffs. No Packers, but Seahawks (the local team) and Steelers (always a house favorite) are both in the Superbowl.
26 Jan 2006, Kegged, but I don't have enough CO2 hoses to do all the kegs at once, so I primed the kegs with 1/3 C white sugar. I found numerous references on-line that said white sugar would work fine since I don't have an corn sugar on hand.
