Batch 247, Pale Ale

 No special name for this, it's a pale ale loosely modeled after Bell's Two Hearted, but that's an IPA and this isn't, but it showcases Centennial none the less.


10 gallon batch



22 lb 2-row

1 lb white wheat

12 oz Crystal 120

Mashed in with 8 gallons at 170F, hit 151F in the mash tun. Adjusted pH to 5.3. Second sparge was 8 gallons at 170F to collect 13 gallons in the boil kettle.

Hops, etc:

1 oz Centennial, FWH

1.5 oz Magnum, 60 min

2 tsp Irish Moss, 15 min

3 oz Centennial, 5 min

90 minute boil.

Oxygenated, then pitched 2 quarts Wyeast 1272 harvested from batch 245.

Super smooth brew day! I even remembered to take a hydrometer sample:

OG: 1.052, 1.062 actual, might need to adjust the efficiency on BrewTarget

FG: 1.014

ABV: 5.2%, it's going to be higher due to overshooting the OG

SRM: 8.1, looks fairly paie going into the fermenter

IBU: 60, that's higher than I was aiming for, but at the last minute I decided to add the 1 oz of Centennial as FWH.
