...which means we've started brewing for that. We also now have our draft tower and tap handles are on the way.
The dunkelweizen is very tasty, if a little too hoppy and in need of another few weeks aging.
First up, the red. This is the version of Dana's Smilin' Irish Eyes Red Ale that I found at beerrecipes.org, with hop substitutions and a little extra bitterness. I've seen this recipe calling for 1/2# and for 1# of Special B.
"Dana's Smilin' Irish Eyes" Red Ale
Irish Ale Yeast (White Labs P004)
--6 lbs Ultralight Malt Extract (liquid)
--1 lb Belgian Special B
--1 lb Orange Blossom Honey (with 15min hop addition)
--1 oz Palisade 9.7%AA (60min)
--1 oz Amarillo 8.9%AA (15min)
--1 oz Amarillo 8.9%AA (0min)
--1 Whirlfloc tablet (15min)
Calc. IBUs: 60
Specialty grains steeped from cold up to 170F (giving ~20 minutes between 150 and 170). Extract added all at once. First hop after hot break. Yielded 5 gallons in the fermenter for me. My hydrometer is currently hanging out with the Malty Brown, so no numbers there yet (should be ~1.05).
