Brewday #72 – Raw & Juicy (Raw Ale / New England IPA)

Cascade and Amarillo. Belma Hops to the right.

Maybe I’m crazy? I’m mashing in 6kg malts with 170gr Aurora hops for 75 minutes. Then after Mash out and sparging I will add 50 gr Amarillo, 50 gr Cascade and 50 gr Belma hops, keep the temperature for 20 minutes at 75C. No boiling, but it should be pasteurised.

Well hopped mash (Aurora Hops).
Hazy enough.

Brewday #71 – Eeengerland (New England IPA)

I haven’t brewed in almost 1.5 year, been working and too lazy, and other stuff to. I wanted to make a real Juicy New England IPA for a long time, and I have so much hops left makes it a good idea.

I got an idea to use the grain basket of the grandfather as a hop spider. I lowered it down and then turned of the boiling, then immediately added 100gr Chinook. I let it sit for 20 minutes. I added 100gr of Calypso. The wort was down to 87C so I put the termostat to 83C so it wouldn’t get to cold during the next 20 minutes.

The grain basket as a hop spider worked great! Look at the pictures all the hops was filtered out.

I’m a genius ;-).
