Brew Log – Hoptober Clone

April 25, 2011 2 comments

Aiming for a pretty simple light blonde with a big hop presence, sort of like Hoptober.

Recipe at

2:30 start
3:00 water on; 7 gallons at 80 degrees
3:50 mash in at 161, aiming for 152, came in high at 154, added cold water immediately to 151,
4:20 heat to 153
4:50 mash out heat to 175
5:05 pull bag, degrees, heat to boil.
5:30 Add Hops, start 45 minutes

1.050 100 first
1.030 93 batch runnings, 1 gallon
1.045 110 combined

ended with 5.5 gallons @ 1.060 Р67% efficiency in hopville calculator. Could have gotten a bit more wort from draining whole hops or by getting  more from bag squeeze or bag sparge.

very blond, delicious hop aroma, looks great!

pitched at 67 degrees

few days later at 1.014, a bit tangy spicy, not at all as bitter as expected.

Primary for  a week, secondary for a week with .5 Sterling and .5 Goldings
Nice, almost lemonade in bright citrus tang, yellow, not as much hop aroma as expected.

Very nice, light, drinkable, lemony citrus hops w out graoefruit.
