This is my latest brew, based on another Dave Line recipe – Brewer’s Reward…
The mash had the benefit of 3 times the addition of Crystal malt. It was mashed for 6 hours to a full conversion, then drained and sparged. The collected wort was then boiled for 2 hrs with Goldings, WVG and some Brambling Cross hops and the addition of some molasses sugar and Muscavado sugar, replacing Dave’s use of Demerera sugar, for additional depth of taste. A further addition of American Cascade hop was pitched in at the end of the boil. The clear wort was then run off through the hop bed. The extra additions of Crystal malt, Cascade hops and the use of the stronger flavoured sugars gives the name Brewer’s Reward and More
The ferment is now underway as you can see and further information will be posted when the brew is finished, barrelled and ready to drink.
The original gravity indicates that the final ABV will be 4.6%. Edited with BlogPad Pro
