Two jobs for this recipe:
- Make a batch of regular strength beer with 1450 to build it up for the NHIPA beer
- See what I think of these Idaho Gem hops
11lbs US 2-ROW
6lbs Marris Otter
1lbs Crystal 15L
1lbs Carapils Copper
Mash at 154F
I'll work out the water later but most likely somewhat high sulfate (150 ppm) and moderate chloride (50 ppm). If they need to be slightly bumped up to hit my mash pH I'll do that.
30 min boil.
~2oz nugget (or whatever I have left) @ 30
1oz Idaho Gem @ 5 mins
3oz Idaho Gem @ 0 mins
3oz Idaho Gem @ WP
ferment on 1450
now is the part where I'm not sure if I should dry hop in the keg or no? and how much? I was thinking of not going too crazy. maybe just 2-3oz per keg. thoughts?
