BIAB - Ale recipes

Who says a low abv beer has to be flavourless? A medley of malts give heft to this infinitely smashable session beer.

20 Litre Batch
BIAB – All Grain
Est. ABV: 2.7%
Est. IBU’s: 23
Est. SG: 1.030
Est. FG: 1.010

MALTS FOR THE MASH:
1.5 kg Ale
500g Munich
300g Flaked Oats or Rolled barley
200g CaraPils
200g Toffee
50g Aromatic malt
Combine 16 litres of 72°C water (strike temp) and the malts in your grain bag inside your urn or pot. Rest at 70°C for 60mins. Sparge with 12 litres of 80°C water in a bucket for 10 minutes and return sparged wort to the urn or pot to make a pre-boil volume of approximately 26 litres.

HOPS FOR THE BOIL (60 minute total):
10g Citra (13% AA) (30min boil)
1tsp Irish Moss/Whirlfloc (10min boil)
20g Citra (13% AA) (5min boil)
30g Citra (13% AA) (0min boil)

FERMENTATION:
Chill the wort and aerate well. Start fermentation as close as possible to 20°C*, preferably with Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale, Safale S-04, or Mangrove Jack’s M36 Liberty Bell yeast.
On the 4th day of fermentation dry hop with 30g Citra hops in a hop bag for 3 days. Remove dry hops then dry hop with an additional 30g Citra hops for a further 3 days.
