OG9 A New Main Sequence

This is a bit of a user upper and an attempt to actually get some beer in stock, after recent disasters. Nothing clever or complex with this one. The recipe looks like:

Fermentable Colour lb: oz Grams Ratio
Pale Malt 5 EBC 8 lbs. 2.5 oz 3700 grams 89.2%
Amber Malt 90 EBC 0 lbs. 15.8 oz 450 grams 10.8%

Hop Variety Type Alpha Time lb: oz grams Ratio
Target Whole 11.4 % 60 mins 0 lbs. 0.5 oz 15 grams 28.8%
Challenger Whole 6.6 % 15 mins 0 lbs. 0.5 oz 15 grams 28.8%
Willamette Whole 6.3 % 15 mins 0 lbs. 0.8 oz 22 grams 42.3%

Final Volume: 23 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.040
Final Gravity: 1.009
Alcohol Content: 4% ABV
Total Liquor: 32.5 Litres
Mash Liquor: 10.4 Litres
Mash Efficiency: 75 %
Bitterness: 31 EBU
Colour: 19 EBC

In the end I got 24l at 1042, continuing my run of exceeding target OG with Crisp’s pale malt.

It was fermented with Fermentis S-33, mostly because the sachet was only a month from its best before date.

It was kegged after 10 days, having got to about 1010. First samples suggest it’s avoided the taint the Landlord was afflicted with, but time will tell.
