0.25kg Crystal Malt
0.25kg Chocolate Malt
20g Chinook (leaf) (12.7% Alpha) FWH
100g Ella (pellet) (15.0% Alpha) @10 minutes from the end (boil)
80g Bravo (pellet) (17.3% Alpha) dry hop

Safale US-05 Ale Yeast (dry) 1pkt of 11.5g
Strike temp of 78C, 14.0L liquor for 5.05kg grain. Mashed in at 68C (single step infusion). Mashed for about 9 hours but only because I went out on my bike…and was distracted by a couple of pubs. Sparged at 78C 22L liquor. I over sparged because I was distracted by my beer fridge. The IBUs will probably be a bit much for the ABV, but not to worry. 60 minute boil.
I collected 24L of wort, post boil, with an OG of 1.052. Pitched the yeast at 20C.
I’ll be adding the dry hops to primary. Bravo and Pacific Gem.
Finished at 1.012 (5.2% abv)
Bottled 13/11/14 (19L 90g sugar batch prime).
