I recently made a batch of pale ale to try to simulate Anchor Steam flavor.
3.3 # light M&F DME
3 # light unhopped M&F ME
1 # Crystal Malt
2 oz Willamette
1 oz Willamette at start of boil 1 oz at end boiled 1/2 hour sat 1/2 hr
strained into primary pitched 2 cup starter 48 hrs previous at 78 deg.
in primary for 1 week secondary for 2 weeks. Used 1 cup DME boiled in 2
cups water for primer.
I use "Bottled Drinking water" (the kind out of a machine in grocery store)
. My water has a high concentration of calcium and floating solids no clorine.
The taste is close to what I want but the beer is cloudy.
Also has a somewhat 'thin' taste.
I want more hop nose so I am going to dry hop with about an oz. of Nothern
brewer next time and probably use a different bittering hop than willamette.
Any sugestions on the cloudy and thin problems.
I fermented at about 65 degrees.
What about using a lager yeast and fermenting at about 68 deg. ?
