Today I put down a “Fruit Salad Ale” derived from a recipie on the Coopers home brew site.
I did things a little differently.
The ingredients were:
- 1x 1.7kg Coopers Australian Pale Ale Can
- 1x 1.5kg Morgans Extra Pale Malt Extract Can
- 150gm Simpsons Medium Crystal Malt
- 20gm Amarillo Hops
- 20gm Citra Hops
- 20gm Cascade Hops
- Danstar BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast
I steeped the hops and grain in 2L of hot water for 20 minutes.
Filled the fermenter to 23 L and put in the fermenting fridge set to 20C.
Original Gravity: 1.049
Final Gravity: 1.008
Two days before bottling I plan to dry hop with 5g Amarillo, 10g Citra and 5g Cascade hops.
Update [22/Oct] – Dry hopped 22/Oct in the afternoon (bottling 27/Oct in the afternoon) with 6g Amarillo, 12g Citra and 6g Cascade hops.
At the end of this I’m expecting and hoping for a fairly hoppy, very fruity ale to be consumed come December.
