    "Red Keep" Biere de Garde

    Here's the Zymurgy (July-August 2018) recipe that I scaled down to the LBK and brewed yesterday. Red Keep Biere de Garde Weyermann Vienna, 5 lbs. Belgian Aromatic malt, 0.2 lb. (I used Chateau Monastique malt) Target, 10.8% AA, 0.25 oz, 50 min. First Gold flavor hop (I subbed 0.25 oz. English Progress, 5.8% AA, 20 min.) Willamette, 3.8% AA, 0.25 oz., 5 min. Belgian Ale yeast (I used Mangrove Jack's M47) Mash @ 152-154 F for 60 min. Sprinkle sparge with hot tap water. Add optional Pale DME, heat to hot-break then begin 90 min. boil. Hop as noted. Chill wort, make to volume and pitch yeast < 70 F. Ferment on the cooler side, 63-65 F. Here is where it gets interesting. Following primary fermentation, rack to secondary and chill for 4 weeks at 48 F. Then batch prime, bottle and carbonate. Garde (keep/cellar) beer for at least 1 month following full carbonation prior to drinking. OG 1.068 IBU Low-mid 20s SRM 8 ABV 6.5% Recipe note: I am not brewing true no-sparge BIAB. My mash-in-sack process allows for a sparge step but becomes a challenge with grain bills exceeding 4.5-lbs. Given a slight reduction in efficiency and my equipment limitations, I'll sometimes add a Mr. Beer BrewMax Pale or Smooth DME (or booster) pre-boil to ensure I hit my OG. I did that this time.
