I am experimenting with making the simplest beer I can imagine. The eventually goal is to brew beer that i have grown myself but I need to wait till next sprint to get my barley going. This is a great cheap way to work. Without the cost of hops or extract I am able to make these 1L batches of beer for ~$3
1.75lbs two row pale extracted then boiled down to 1.25L. (small scale all grain brewing extraction by this method)
0.5oz dried homegrown cascade (60min) 0.1oz dried homegrown cascade (5min). no hydrometer. I would guess it was too high though. put in secondary 10/3/09. results were not hoppy enough for a good pale.
1.75lbs two row pale extracted then boiled down to 1.75L, 0.3oz dried homegrown cascade(60min) O.G. 1050. put in secondary 10/3/09. results were not hoppy enough for a good pale. tasted just like above pale.
1.00lb two row pale. 0.5lb rye. stuck mash.
1.25lbs two row pale. 1 cup rye. 0.5oz cascade pellets. O.G. 1060. 0.5 gallon batch.
bottled 12/13 no secondary
5.5lbs two row pale. 0.5lb rye. 1.25oz cascade pellets. O.G. 1060. 1.75 gallon batch.
bottled 12/13 no secondary.
At bottling tasted great. may be the one i make a label for->
5lbs two row pale, 0.5 medium crysta, 0.5 rye, 2oz cascade O.G. 1060
By far the best batch. Crystal added a little sweetness that balances the rye
4lbs two row pale. 0.5 medium crystal, 0.5 rye. leftover malt from previous batches that did not fit in the fermentation containers.
