AG#37 India Brown Ale

Original Gravity (OG): 1.052
Final Gravity (FG): 1.008
Alcohol (ABV): 5.8%
Colour (EBC): 48
Bitterness (IBU): 80 (Average)

4.25kg Pale Ale Malt
0.30kg Pale Wheat Malt
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
50g Pacific Gem (pellet) (14.8% 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.
