Untitled - Rest in Peace!
Untiled was the probably the best of the 3 beers I have brewed so far. The next one coming up is "Bombay Summer". The name aptly suites the brewery (Desi) and its going to be fermenting while I am in Mumbai. After the previous tasty brew, my expectation from the Bombay Summer are higher.
Bombay Summer is more or less a wheat beer with honey. Though I was going to introduce bitter orange peal which seems to be my standard ingredient, this time I am going to cut back on it. I am going to add coriander and honey. No more fruity flavors!
So here is the recipe. (4.5 Gal batch)
- 4 lbs DME (55% Wheat, 45% Barley)
- 8 oz Maltose Dextrine.
- 1 can of Mr. Beer Pale Ale HME.
- 1 oz of coriander
- Belgian Witbier Yeast
- 1 oz of Hallertau Hops
- 2lbs of Honey
Desolve DME, Maltodextrin and honey and in 6 cups of drinking water. Boil water and add 2 tsp of hops after 10 mins. Add another 2 tsp of hops and 6 oz of coriander after 30 mins of boiling. Boil for another 15 mins and let it cool. After the mixture has cooled down, bring the volume to 4.5 gallons by adding more water. Mix in the yeast and store in the fermenters for 2 -3 week.
- Full Bodied
- 6-7% abv
- Complex flavor.
- Good relaxing summer beer.
Wow a complete month of fermenting and now the its bottled. 13 L of home brewed beer will be ready to be refrigerated in 2 weeks. I have changed the amount of carbonating sugar so the beer may turn out a little flat. Oh well at least it wont turn out sweet like the previous ones.
Notes to self: use LME instead of DME.
Stay tuned for tasting information and the next brew.
