Orfy Pale Ale

A unplanned brew session..

A Pale ale I formulated the recipe to Style.

15 HCU (~10 SRM)
Bitterness: 41 IBU
OG: 1.054 FG: 1.012

Grain: 6.00kg British pale
0.30kg British crystal 50-60L
30g British chocolate

Hops: 60g Fuggles (4.75% AA, 60 min.)
15g Kent Goldings (5% AA, 30 min.)
30g Saaz (3.75% AA, 30 min.)
30g Saaz (aroma)
The yeast is first rehydrated
Then The grain weighed

The grain is added to the Mash Tuna and 2.6L/kg of water at 77c is added. This gives a mash temperature of 68c. It is left for 90 minutes. The wort is drained then rinsed with a furter 23l of water at 77c. This is then added to the kettle and brought to the boil.

On boiling the first hops are added the others at there designated times along with the irish moss 5 minutes from the end.

The wort chiller is added 15 minutes before the end of the boil to sanitise. Then water is run through to fetch the wort to below 27c.

The wort is then drained into the carboy and aerated.

I collect the hot water from the chiller and use it for cleaning afterwards.

The Yeast is then Pitched and the airlock and bung are fitted.

One week later the Gravity is 1010 so it is racked to Secondary.

2 weeks in secondary
Primed and 3 weeks in Bottles to Condition.

The blog will be updated.
