Homebrew: 'Ey You Golden Ale

Submitted by DM on Sat, 24/02/2018 - 13:14

I decided to brew a golden beer using cara malt & Belgian Ale yeast.

Mash: 1 hour 15 mins.   Started at 72ºC and fell to 67ºC.   This should give me a slightly fuller bodied beer than normal, as would suit the style.

4 Kg pale malt

1 Kg Cara malt

1 teaspoon MgSO4

1 teaspoon CaSO4

1/2 teaspoon NaCl

Boil: 1 hour 15 mins.  

100g Savinjski Golding pellets added 25 mins before end

50g Savinjski Golding pellets added 10 mins before end

Having successfully made 2 Berliner Wiesses, I discovered that drinking exclusively 2.1% beers doesn't give you a sense of satisfaction like a viscous, chewy stout - so I made one.   A beer to be taken seriously - hence the name.
