Help me make a recipe?

Recommended Posts

Normally I have a long list of things I want to brew and don't really look anywhere for advice on what to brew. But I am broke and I have weird amounts of hops accumulating in my freezer. So I'd like to do a cleaning out the closet batch, only having to buy grains. I'm going to list what I have and maybe you want to give me an idea of what you would brew. Show me your creativity! :woohoo:

Hops:

Saaz |5.5%| 1 oz
Magnum |13.6%| 1 oz
EKG |Don't remember| .5oz
Cascade |6.4%| .5 oz
Fuggles |4.2| .25 oz
Williamette|4.6| .3 oz
Chinook |11| .5 oz
Tettnang |4| .2 oz

Yeast:

S-05
T-58
Windsor
Wyeast 1335 (British Ale II)
Wyeast Thames Valley II

You could do a pale ale or maybe an IPA. Bitter with Magnum, and then willamette and chinook for flavor, and dry hop with the cascade?

Have you got containers for LME?

They have the bulk LME at Wine&Hop shop (They raised prices this month from $2.40/# to $2.75/#)

Get a 3# - 4# LME and 1/2# steep grain = $9.25 - $12 for a batch using the Saaz and Tettnang and the S-05

I'd make a Pale Ale using Magnum to bitter and Cascade for flavor/aroma.

Then I'd make a brown ale using the KG, Fuggles and Willamette.

Yeah, I'd brew both of those. Both sound good.

I too like these suggestions. Although I was also thinking about doing an intense, resiny, piney pale ale/AIPA with Magnum for bittering and some Chinook late. But I do love Cascade. Stoutmeister, have you ever tried what you described? I'm kind of intrigued by the idea of Chinook late and Cascade dry hopped but it seems like they might clash. Oooh the choices. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Except for you BigPapa :P:P Just kidding of course but unbeknownst to you (and I probably should have mentioned it) I recently realized I hate Belgian yeast and I don't know what the hell I'm gonna do with this T-58. Recipe sounds great but I know I wouldn't like it with T-58.

Can make a nice robust porter for the January time.

Magnum for bitter and Williamette for flavor/aroma
- 4.75 lbs 2 row
- 6 oz Chocolate malt
- 6 oz crystal malt 60
- 1.5 oz black patent.

Mash around 158
Pitch what ever yeast attenuates the least. Not sure what the attenuation of the Thames valley yeast does or the Windsor.

EDIT: Typo

Uh oh folks now we've got a real race. That porter sounds real good. I hear you've made a porter or two. A porter was in my to brew list anyway.

Cool. Do you mean anything by the word each after the C60 or was that some note to yourself that chocolate and crystal are 6 oz each?

Since you decided you are an anti-belgianite heretic :evil: LOL.

Save the T-58 if you ever have a situation where you need to add yeast at bottling time, IE if you do an extended cold crash and are concerned about viability. A couple grams of T-58 will get you priming nicely and won't give you any belgian flavors when used that way. It is often used as a bottling yeast for beers that are filtered or brite tanked, and then bottle conditioned.

Or mail it to me or BigPapaG LOL.

Thanks for mentioning that. I hadn't thought of it but I'd much rather use this if necessary than the other yeasts I generally have on hand because I actually like the taste of them! I am a proud heretic these days...man, the idea of stone fruits with a little peppery spice sounds so good to me but the actual yeast-derived tastes make me wanna dump the glass.

Maybe we could do a trade SP since I would use it and I could get you a S-05, S-04 or WB-06
