I brewed a version of the first all grain beer that I ever brewed with my friend Dave. We bought the kit from northern brewer back in 2011. I wanted to brew it again but increased the grain and added Munich malt to create a beer similar to Bells Oberon ale.
Filtering the water
5lbs Rahr 2 row
5lbs white wheat
Crushing the grains. Thanks to Dave for letting me borrow the barley crusher!
Taking detailed notes
Mash at 152
Mash out. What a nice Caramel color!
1oz willamette at 60 min
1oz cascade at 15 min
Chilling the wort.
My homemade wort chiller. 50 ft of copper.
The wort cooled down in 15 minutes. I transferred to the fermenter. I had to much boil off and ended up with only 4.5 gallons of beer. I was shooting for 5.5. Original gravity is 1.061, a little higher than I wanted.
Draining into the fermenter and helping oxygenate the wort! Next pitch the yeast and wait!
