Single malt & single hop (Canadian 2-row & home-grown, wet cascades)
7.5 oz FWH
7.5 oz 60 min
4 oz - 25 min
4 oz - 20 min
4 oz - 15 min
I guess I mashed a little too warm (I didnt' want it too thin with just the 2-row).
Just racked to secondary, off the US-05 yeast cake.
Imperialish-Double Oatmeal Stout:
2 oz Warrior (60 min)
4.5 oz wet cascade - 25 min
4.5 oz wet cascade - 20 min
4.5 oz wet cascade - 15 min
More malt that I've ever mashed
I pitched it on the US05 cake, but added an additional 2 packets of US05 as well. Since it's already up to the lid of the bucket, I put a blow off tube on it!
Cool-Runnings Dry Stout:
I capped the mash on the imperial with a half pound of crystal, 1.5 lbs of 2 row & 2 oz roasted barley (I did a mini mash on the side & added it to the MLT).
After 5 gallons the gravity was still 1.019, so I got greedy & collected another gallon; it went down to 1.017. The brew day was getting long (after picking hops & already doing the imperial), so I didn't boil it as long as I should have.
The OG was only 1.036, so I topped it up with a lb of molasses.
Safale S-04 British yeast
After a 14 hr brew day, I'm thinking I should've done some cleaning while I was mashing (rather than surfing the net)! Ah well... it was good day.
Next morning report: the Imperial has settled down, but the dry stout is going like crazy! The S04 is really diggin' the junk food (molasses), pushing foam out the open carboy!
