Hairy

Tom Selleck IPA

Recommended Posts

So it is time for the Magnum beer. I was planning on doing a full extract beer but decided to take a short cut and use a kit with a lower volume. I will be running with:

1.7kg Coopers Mexican Cerveza
150g CaraMunich 1
20g Magnum @ flame out (steep)
30g Magnum - Dry Hop

10 litres
OG - 1055
FG - 1014
IBU - 55

Yum!!!

I'm interested to see how this turns out, next year I'm planning an all magnum pale ale but I'll do the full AG batch. I used it all up in my big stout so I'll have to order more.

I forgot to mention the yeast. I will probably use US-05 to let the hops shine.

Nice one Hairy. 

I think I’m going to enjoy the banter on this one.

Hairy's got a lot of faith in this one. Non-AG, kit based, & only 10 litres. That way if it's crap it hasn't cost him a lot of time, money & he won't have to tip out too much. 😜

Bahahahaha! 🤣 😆 🤣

You've made my day Hairy!

Hairy, if this turns out well you could consider a Magnum range of beers?

Maybe a "Dirty Hairy 44 Magnum"  with 6 rounds of dry hopping @ 7.3gms / FO = total of 44.

Go ahead, make my brew!

Well Hairy, my pale ale with Dr Rudi follows a very similar recipe. It's good, but I'm sure yours with Magnum will be spectacular.

Nothing wrong with that for testing a hop out!

There are quite a lot of people on this forum that believe magnum is boring and will probably contradict that statement ha ha ha ha love it.

The only thing I'd bother to test that hop out with is a naked flame. 

I'm glad it's not my money.

P.S. Hopefully you'll be able to smell it over the kit hops Hairy! 😜

Cheers,

Lusty.

Are ‘aroma’ hops in a kit even noticeable?

Legitimate question, I would like to know.

I have never noticed any aroma hops in the cerv kit. Oh and made the stop haha. Might use the whole 100g even for the 10L batch only will cost $15

It should marry up well with the stalk flavours of Magnum. 😜

I like this picture.

Because if the bottle were on a shelf & the tag was facing away from you, you'd think this was a medicine bottle & likely leave it alone. 😁

Cheers,

Lusty.
