Thanks again for adding :)

Had a question about the mash steps, I noticed you've added volume for a mash step? Or is that actually a sparge or mash out?

i will try and fix the AA's on the recipes.

yeah i did the mash volume then the sparge volume.

I went with the original hop schedule, i know its on the high end. but surprisingly it sample wasnt very bitter.
time will tell.
cheers

I read this recipe with interest, I would appreciate any comments on how it tasted out by members who brewed it.

Thanks

its been a while, but from my memory though a little foggy, it turned out to be a very nice beer.
since you refreshed the thread i will have to put this on my "To Brew list"
all of our collaboration beers have turned out to be very good, the BIPA just needed some age time and a slight hop adjustment.
brew it and let me know what you think of it too.

It was a good brew. A classic cream ale imo.

So I brewed this today. My 1st All-Grain. But the OG seems high @ 1062. Used BeerSmith.

The only change I made was I mashed it in a rectangular cooler with a brew-in a-bag @ 152 for 90 min. Full volume mash (7.5 gal).

Preboil gravity was 1054, OG is 1062 - checked it with 2 different hydrometers at 60f.

Anyone know why the gravity would be so high. I was shooting for around 5% ABV.

Thanks
Brian

wow sorry about that I didnt realize the mash temp was so high.
I fixed that so its 66c/152f
your mash for 90min probably added more conversion, which is a good thing.
your first few brews with all grain will be all over the place until you learn your system.
take lots of notes and compare while having a home brew.
I keep a note book with a bunch of information on each brewday.
if you ever want to lower your OG add some water to dilute, make sure to boil it and cool it of coarse  ;) same for boosting OG add some DME to some water and boil it and cool it.
so your cream ale will probably finish at 1.012 - 1.008 giving you around a 6-7% abv
I would let it go since you already pitched your yeast.
if you brew it again remember these numbers and either cut your mash time down to 60min or add some boiled water before pitching and take a reading until you get the number you want.
hope that helps you out.

Bargoon,
What efficiency do you have set up in Beersmith for your system? If you increase that number, Beersmith will increase the potential OG and ABV to help you fix this problem.

Tap #2 - Feedback Loop Berliner Weiss

Thanks for the feedback. Don't worry this brew won't go to waste - I may just have to sip it a bit slower.

Cheers

So I've been drinking this one for a while now - very tasty.

Tonight I left it out of the fridge for a while and it got to about to room temp but when I tasted it, it was delightfully creamy.

How do I replicate this cold or is this a attribute of British style of not so cold beer?

Thanks

Brian

Recommended serving temp for this style is 48-50 F/ 9-10 C. The feel of the beer might be even creamier at higher temps, and by all means, if you prefer a higher serving temp that is totally your call. The recommended temps are just that, recommended. You need to find your own preferred balance between temp and experience.
