Beer Style: Fruit Beer (20A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 4.75 US gallons

Fruit Beer
Beer Color

Description:

I overcarbonated with sucrose priming. I "decanted" a pint and I think it had too much body so maybe mashing at a lower temperature next time will be what I'll do. The flavor is right on, and it does need a healthy amount of carbonation, I shot for 2.5 volumes but went over.

Ingredients:

  • 9 lbs 16.0 oz - Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) (Grain)
  • 16.0 oz - Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) (Grain)
  • 16.0 oz - White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM) (Grain)
  • 1.5 oz - Williamette [4.5%] - Boil 60 min (Hops)
  • 53.27 tsp - Irish Moss (Boil 10 min) (Misc)
  • 0 pkgs - California Ale (White Labs #WLP001) (Yeast)
  • 0.25 tsp - Yeast Nutrient (Primary 3 days) (Misc)
  • 6.30 oz - Apricot Extract (Bottling 5 min) (Misc)

Additional Instructions

Boil: 60 Minutes

I rated your brew a two because of a confusing recipe:

9lbs 16.0oz...Isn't 16oz a pound??
53.27 tsp Irish Moss.. I know, just a typo, but didn't you proofread your post first??
0 pkgs California Ale. So you use a yeast nutrient, but no yeast??
