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
25g jasmine flowers added 10 mins before end
10g Irish Moss added 10 mins before end
Wort chilled using my home made wort chiller to 21ºC. 19 litres of wort were splashed into an FV through a colander onto a sachet of Mangrove Jack's M41 Belgian Ale yeast. The wort had an OG of 1.060 & a bottling gravity of 1.014, which should give me an alcohol level of around 6.0% ABV.
Bottled after 8 days primary fermentation & primed with 5ml golden syrup per litre.
