36 - Fuggly Pale

I'm not sure why, possibly because I destroyed my decent thermometer somehow, but the next couple of beers both came out 10 points under the gravity that I was aiming for. Either that or I messed up the recipe creation in BeerSmith2.

I decided to do a more classic British pale ale, mainly to use up a packet of Fuggles, if I'm honest. This was also destined for the 40th birthday party, however, in the end we decided to bottle and keep half of it. There was a sugar addition to this, but Daz did it at fermenting time, so I'm not sure exactly what he added.

The birthday party beers have been put back into jerrycans. The idea being that we'll syphon into another jerrycan after they've settled and serve from that. I have some taps that should be OK for serving. I know this isn't exactly ideal, but it was the best we could come up with with limited time and resources.

  • 2.13kg Pale malt
  • 0.35kg Pale crystal malt
  • 0.35kg Pale wheat malt
  • 45g Fuggles @ 60
  • 30g Fuggles @ 15
  • Mash @ 66 for 90 minutes
  • Make up to 1038 with sugar
