Beer #18

An early start at work for a filer software upgrade, had me leaving early and getting home before 14:00. With the whole afternoon ahead of me and the prospect of Gemma not being around, I decided to put the time to good use and get another beer on. Because last times were pretty high strength, somewhat accidentally I decided to go with something a little lighter. I went for a simple malt base aiming for 1.038 and decided to use up the Apollo hops in the freezer.

  • 3kg Maris Otter
  • 200g Crystal Malt
  • 10g Apollo @ 60 mins
  • 10g Apollo @ 15 mins
  • 1 tsp Irish Moss @ 15 mins
  • 20g Apollo @ 0 mins
  • Danstar Nottingham Yeast, rehydrated

Everything went pretty smoothly and was kind of relaxed. Collected 22L bang on target gravity and pitched.
