OG 14 – Quasi-Stellar Object

Spring is upon us, and here’s a beer that should be suitable for it:

Fermentable Colour lb: oz Grams Ratio
Pale Malt 5 EBC 4 lbs. 13.5 oz 2200 grams 50%
Oat Flakes 2.5 EBC 0 lbs. 7.0 oz 200 grams 4.6%
Flaked Wheat 0 EBC 4 lbs. 6.5 oz 2000 grams 45.4%

Hop Variety Type Alpha Time lb: oz grams Ratio
Challenger Whole 8.1 % 60 mins 0 lbs. 0.4 oz 11 grams 50%
Challenger Whole 8.1 % 15 mins 0 lbs. 0.4 oz 11 grams 50%

Final Volume: 19 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.050
Final Gravity: 1.012
Alcohol Content: 5% ABV
Total Liquor: 28.3 Litres
Mash Liquor: 11 Litres
Mash Efficiency: 75 %
Bitterness: 15 EBU
Colour: 5 EBC

This was fermented with WB-06 for 2 weeks at 20C, then 1 week resting at around 2-4C. It has been bottled with a mix of white and brown sugar. i’ve doubled up the priming sugar to try and get it gassy enough for the style. The result hit an OG of 1.050, and went lower than expected, finishing at 1.008.
