DIREC­TIONS

Mash for 60 min­utes at 149°F (65°C), vor­lauf for 15 min­utes, and boil for 60 min­utes. Add the flame-out hops, then chill the wort to less than or equal to 180°F (82°C) and add your steep­ing hops for 30 min­utes. This will help keep the bit­ter­ness down and the juici­ness up. Pitch the yeast at 68°F (20°C). It’s im­por­tant to add the first charge of dry hops at high krausen, when­ever that hap­pens to be for you. Add the sec­ond charge af­ter you re­move the yeast.

BREWER’S NOTES

The malted oats tend to pre­vent stuck mashes, so you may not need to use rice hulls. De­spite the low mash tem­per­a­ture, with the grain bill and yeast mix, we seem to end with a rel­a­tively high fin­ish­ing grav­ity, which ac­cen­tu­ates the “juici­ness” of the hops. We ad­just our mash with phos­phoric acid to get a ph (read­ing taken at room tem­per­a­ture) around 5.4. Use cal­cium chlo­ride in the mash to get around 150 ppm.
