- Day 1, an Australian brewery created and released a wheat ale called Mountain Goat Steam Ale.
- Day 2, People down under tasted and said it was good.
- Day 3, Someone devised a clone recipe for this fine brew.
- Day 4, @Galileosbane and @Martinpribble followed each other on Twitter and began several dialogues on various topics, including brewing.
- Day 5: @Martinpribble mentioned success with this particular clone recipe and shared the recipe with @Galileosbane.
- Day 6, Hop substitution, as the Homebrew Shop didn't have all the correct hops. I also select pale ale two row instead of a darker base malt (recipe included extract).
- Day 7, Brew day.
- Day 8, (otherwise known as days 2-22) fermenting of the beer, followed by bottling.
- Day 9, Recipe posted on famous Dunerbrew blog while waiting for bottle conditioning. (Nine days a week and no rest...dang)
Well that was fun, how about the recipe. ...and a name?
DUnerbrew #FF Hopped Wheat Ale, American Wheat Ale
Final Volume: 3.25 Gallons OG: 1.045 FG: 1.008 ABV: 4.9% IBU:50
4.5lbs American Two Row
1.5lbs Light Wheat Malt
0.5oz NZ Motueka, 6.7% (60 min)0.375oz NZ Super Alpha, 12.9% (30 min)
,5oz Cascade, 5% (flame out)
.5oz Citra, 14.6% (flame out)
.375oz NZ Super Alpha, 12.9% (flame out)
US-05 (dry yeast packet)
Initial impression: Highly hoppy with aroma and flavor, too much Citra perhaps. Strong grapefruit flavors. Not a lot of maly balance. Color, piss yellow,
Hopes and aspirations: With carbonation, this could be a very effervescent, flavorful, light and refreshing beer. One to drink while mowing the lawn on a fine spring FL day.
