Holy friggin yeast party!

Recommended Posts

:woohoo:

So I brewed this up last night, tell me what you think!

AIB Oatmeal Stout

3.5 lbs Pale LME
4.0 oz Malto Dextrin
.5 lb Crystal 120L
.5 lb Roasted Barley
.5 lb Chocolate
.5 lb Flaked Oats
.5 oz Willamette 60 min
.3 oz Cascade 20 min
.3 oz Cascade 5 min

Grains steeped in cold water until 158* then held there for 10 min

Ice bath till 65*

SG 1.053 ... On low side ... Recipe calls for 1.058 - 1.060

Pitch White Labs Edinburgh 028 @ 10:30 pm

At 4:30 am little to no activity .. Just a little trub on bottom

Arrive home after work @ 5:00 pm today and holy crap just about blew the top off the LBK, beer every where! Has anyone ever successfully rigged a blow off tube to LBK?

Pic is 30 min after 1st sanitizing cleanup! Forgot to snap picture of original mess in all the hurry to get it cleaned up!

Just use a paper town, sanitized with one step, remove the lid, clean off the lid/threads and clean off the knotches on the keg. Place lid back on and press on. Yea, it's happened to many of us.

You may have missed your OG because you didn't convert enough on your grain steep. Next time heat your water to 160*, then put in the grains and hold for 30 mins.

Good lookin recipe though, and a sweet yeasty party to boot!

That is nice, I made the Spring White IPA with raspberry and had the lid blow off the top! Some real happy yeast there! The beer came out very well though!

Just curious, do you go to the Taylor or Ann Arbor store?

What is an Arbor store and why do you have one named Taylor and another named Ann?

Ha ha! Good one!

But on a serious note, it's my LHBS, called Adventures in Home Brewing, there is a store in Ann Arbor, MI and Taylor, MI

That appears to be extract with steeping grains recipe and not a mini mash so I don't believe he was supposed to get much in the way of fermentables from the steep - just color and flavor.

That was bad!!!

Ya mine is a couple miles down the road which is really a pain, as before they moved they were at the end of my street and I could walk there. Of course, that convenience was gone before I started brewing. The trials and tribulations of the home brewer....
