A Lagerer's Log

Recommended Posts

Hiyas!

 

With the recommendation of JoshR, I'm creating a log of all my all-grain, lager conversions to Mr. Beer HME recipes that I'm going to be working on over the next 6 months to a year.  While MB does have a really nice selection of beer recipes, they're mostly ales.  I've made pretty much all of the lager recipes already (some multiple times!).  So I wanted to expand/explore that vast array of lager styles and I hope you enjoy my "Trek."   :P

 

Currently conditioning:

Jamaica Mon with S-23

Mad Ludwig's Marzen

Uncle Monkey's Dunkel

and Uncle Monkey's Dunkel with 1 cup maple syrup and 1/4 granulated sugar (experimental upgrade)

 

In the LBK:

Turncoat IPL (first India Pale Lager; really excited!)

Stella Clone (euro pale lager) 

Harp's Clone (euro pale lager)

Black Smoke on the Lager (dark american lager)

 

Later this evening, I will post the QBrew print out of the recipes that I created using MB's ingredients.

Batch Notes

While the 25 minute boil is not necessary for taste, it does bring the recipe into the correct color range.  By default, 8 SRM is noted, I believe a 30 minute total on robust LME might give it another 50%.

Renamed "Easter Communion" to "Dracula's Punch"

 

The dry hop worked out extremely well and is very aromatic.  The dark cherries give the smell beautiful sweet balance.  However, the cherry flavor isn't coming through at all.

Next time, I will definitely use a cherry extract during bottling and try postponing adding the cherries until after high krausen (week 2 or 3).

Vakko, in your recipes I can follow all except the hops. You mention like:

1.00 oz BrewDemon™ Hellfire Deep Red Ale Pellet 5 minutes

1.00 oz Mr. Beer/Coopers Classic American Light Pellet 5 minutes

1.00 oz Mr. Beer/Coopers American Ale Pellet 5 minutes

1.00 oz Mr. Beer/Coopers Canadian Blonde Pellet 5 minutes

 

I have no ides what these are. Do you have a secret translation as to what hops they use in the Mr B HME cans?

In a program like QBrew, you have to put in your hops. . Since neither Mr. Beer or Brewdemon tell us what they are, you put in the name of the brew and 5 minutes. The values are already in the database.

Those are all the HME's from the Qbrew database.  Instructions say 1.0oz at 5mins will yield the correct IBU.

 

Now that I learned how to post the HTML versions of these recipes, I can redo them so they are easier read.

Wow, Dracula's Punch came out really well.  Very surprised.

 

Not sure what to sub out though with MrB ingredients to get around the same stuff.

 

Changes:

Need's flavoring hops (15-20 minutes of something citrusy but not cascade)

Add the cherries after high krausen

Use cherry extract if possible

Vakko, your Dark Czech shows three LMEs, but you only add two in the recipe.

Copy and paste error.  Thanks.  I definitely put in the other 2 LME's when I put the HME in.

I'm not trying to replicate anyone's AG clone.  My "clones" are simply inspired by another recipe.  We're not even using the same ingredients lol.

Turncoat IPL turned out amazingly!

Recently tried Sierra Nevada's "Camp Hoppy" 2015 IPL.  It was almost undrinkable.

 

This Turncoat was amazing and its  ONE WEEK into condition.  As a matter of fact, I took all of my bottles and placed them into my 55F fermenter to slow the conditioning.  So apparently new brides and IPAs... the younger the better.

Completely forgot to update what I made this weekend:

 

Sutter's Gold with an extra pale LME.  (I know I know... shouldn't have messed with original recipe.  I had some extra LME sitting around)

Imperial India Black Ale (not a lager obviously but just a heads up on stuff)

 

I also bottled my Raspberry Peach Wheat.

 

Should be time to get some feedback about the brews that have been bottled so far.

 

Additionally, I will be making 4 more recipes this weekend.  That will be 6 on the brew.

  • Turncoat was loved and over-consumed (I have 1L left)
  • Stella was also mass enjoyed
  • Black Smoke was actually too malty and a little on the flat side (only beer where I have used dextrose to bottle prime so hrmmmm)
  • Dracula's Punch was really enjoyed by my wife (which is always a plus)
  • Jamaica Mon was liked but not requested
  • Mad Ludwig's Marzen was also liked...
  • Uncle Monkey's Dunkel with maple was preferred over the version without
  • Harps was so bleh that I will probably make 5 gallons of it so I can have in the garage for beer emergencies.

I assume by the name it's a dark beer. FWIW dark beers aren't as carbed as light beers. "a little flat" is in line with some I tried in Germany.

I know.  But it had basically zero bitterness or aroma.  I agree that "a little flat" is definitely preferred on some styles.  It just didn't go over well with my guests and I, personally, didn't enjoy it.

No doubt the general style for dark beers is a acquired taste...some of the dark beers in Germany took me 2-3 cases to acquire the taste.

Too many beers out there to make to worry about 1 style imo.  Maybe I'll come back around to it.  But I think I'll probably just move onto stouts and porters and schwarzbier.
