So this January 15th 2017 I decided to make the best of a cold rainy day. With new burner and clean equipment to the patio we go. Today for the brew schedule is a wheat beer .Nothing fancy a grain bill made up of what I had on hand. We are doing and extract brew with a partial mash. The ingredients will be simple.
3.2 #’s Weyerman pilsner
3 #’s extra light dry malt extract
3 #’s wheat malt dry Malt extract
1 # honey
1 oz. East Kent Golding hops 60 minutes
1 oz. East Kent Golding hops at 5 minutes
Saf Ale US 05 yeast
For water we will use 7 gallons of filtered water from h2o to go. I have been a homebrewer now for over five years. I never really made a big fuss over water chemistry but, I have always used filtered water . If not filtered water then reverse osmosis water . My process to me has always seemed a little haphazard but , my cleaning and sanitation always done well.
I have recently begun upgrades to my brew equipment. Last near new began with replacing fermenters. No more buckets I like the idea of conical fermenters. The fast ferment conical fermenter is sleek easy to clean . This year my upgrade is a new burner from
Another slight upgrade was a three gallon conical fermenter.
Brewing in a bag and brewing with extracts saves me time and money . After cleaning house and removing old equipment one of my needs is a new mash tun . Soon I would like to incorporate a brew rig in with a patio cook station. That is a project for the new year.
The brew day was uneventful and went as planned . With needed repairs and cleaning completed on worth chiller , I chilled from boiling to 70 degrees in about fifteen minutes .
Thank you cold weather!!
