Here are the recipes for 01-01-08 community brew. Community brews are recipes that are created with the input of members of the brewboard. This is the latest one.

To follow the evolution of the recipe, you can go to these threads:
Conceptual Idea
Hopping Thread
Grain Bill Thread
Yeast Selection Thread

The concept is a recipe to brew on January 1st, 2008. (Or as close to that date as possible)

2008 will go down in homebrew history as "The Year Of The Hop Shortage" We agreed on the theme to be a HOP RECESSION Community Brew. No variety of hop is specified. Everybody has a different selection of hops on hand and every LHBS has a different selection hops for you to purchase.

This is a recipe that lets you use what ever hops you can get you hands on.


HOPS:

Hopping schedules are expressed in HBU.

To calculate HBUs.
HBUs = weight in ounces x alpha acid percent
Example: 2 ounces of 10% alpha hops = 20 HBUs

To calculate ounces of hops.
Ounces = HBUs / alpha acid percent
Example: 10 HBUs of 4% alpha hops = 2.5 ounces]

+++++++++++++++++++++++

Standard Schedule
Bittering (60 minutes) = 10 HBUs
Flavor (15 minutes) = 5 HBUs
Aroma (5 minutes) = 5 HBUs

Example:
Bittering = 2 oz Willamette (5%) = 10 HBUs = 32 IBUs
Flavor = 1.25 oz Goldings (4%) = 5 HBUs = 7.5 IBUs
Aroma = 1.25 oz Goldings (4%) = 5 HBUs = 3 IBUs
Total hops = 4.5 oz
Total IBUs = 42.5


HopBurst Schedule
First Wort (steep before boiling) = 5 HBUs
Flavor (15 minutes) = 5 HBUs
Aroma (5 minutes) = 5 HBUs
Aroma (end of boil) = 5 HBUs

Example:
First Wort = 0.5 oz Chinook (10%) = 5 HBUs = 9.5 IBUs
Flavor = 0.5 oz Simcoe (10%) = 5 HBUs = 7.5 IBUs
Aroma = 0.5 oz Columbus (10%) = 5 HBUs = 3 IBUs
Aroma = 0.5 oz Chinook (10%) = 5 HBUs = 0 IBUs
Total hops = 2 oz
Total IBUs = 20


Simple Schedule
Bittering (60 minutes) = 16 HBUs
Dry Hop (in secondary for 1-2 weeks) = 4 HBUs

Example:
Bittering = 2 oz Amarillo (8%) = 16 HBUs = 51 IBUs
Dry Hop = 1 oz Mt Hood (4%) = 4 HBUs = 0 IBUs
Total hops = 3 oz
Total IBUs = 51


GRAIN BILL:

All Grain
Assumes 75% Efficiency
1.048 OG @ 5.5 Gallons
Single Infusion @ 152 Deg F

8.50 lb Maris Otter Pale Malt (3.0 SRM) 89.5%
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 30L (30 SRM) 5.3%
0.25 lb Special B Malt (180 SRM) 2.6%
0.25 lb Chocolate Wheat Malt (400 SRM) 2.6%

Burton Ale/Thames Valley Yeast
White Labs WLP023
Wyeast 1275


Partial Mash
Assumes 75% Efficiency
Adjust extract & base malt to suit your equipment
~1.048 OG @ 5.5 Gallons
Single Infusion @ 152 Deg F

4.00 lb Maris Otter LME or 3.50 lb Light DME
3.00 lb Maris Otter Pale Malt (3.0 SRM) 89.5%
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 30L (30 SRM) 5.3%
0.25 lb Special B Malt (180 SRM) 2.6%
0.25 lb Chocolate Wheat Malt (400 SRM) 2.6%

Burton Ale/Thames Valley Yeast
White Labs WLP023
Wyeast 1275


Extract
1.048 OG @ 5.5 Gallons

6.50 lb Maris Otter LME or 5.25 lb Light DME
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 30L (30 SRM) 5.3%
0.25 lb Special B Malt (180 SRM) 2.6%
0.25 lb Chocolate Wheat Malt (400 SRM) 2.6%

Burton Ale/Thames Valley Yeast
White Labs WLP023
Wyeast 1275


As always; It's your beer. Substitute as you see fit.

Possible substitutions:

For the Chocolate wheat Substitute
Crystal Wheat
Chocolate Rye
Crystal Rye
Caramunich
Caravienna
Biscuit Malt (as appropriate)

It is a New Year's recipe, I suggest you substitute a malt you have never used before. A new malt for the new year.

Yeast: The WLP001/1056/US-05 Chico yeast did well in the voting. I chose to steal the election and declare Burton Ale/Thames Valley the winner. If you want to go with the same old yeast WPL001/1056 - go ahead.

If anybody has a suggestion for the extract brewers to make plain LME/DME more like Maris Otter, please share.

Please feel free to add comments and questions about what you see.

Thanks to all who helped out.

Great job! I'm inputting this one into my spreadsheet and will decide which hops to use once I get my hop order from Hops Direct. This might be a good one to experiment with those new Bravo hops. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif) I still haven't decided whether I'm going with chocolate wheat or chocolate rye, but I'll probably keep the grain bill the same as above and use the chocolate rye in another beer.

Thanks zymot!

Oh, and I should be brewing this either on December 30 or on January 3 -- don't think I'll be able to pull off an actual Jan 1 brew day.

Looks good. I'll be brewing this one, but might be a little while till I get round to it. Not sure exactly what hops I'll use, but it might end up being Pacific Hallertau which I've got a pound of. That or something English anyway.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Hops Direct about whether they sent my new hop order or not. Hopefully in a day or two, now that the weekend is over. I can't even remember everything I ordered, but I know there's a pound of Bravo and a pound of Tettnanger (last year's crop) in there -- can't wait to use them, either together in this beer or in something else.

Anyone else have comments on this beer? ? ? ? ?

Well, I am not much of a community beer brewer, but I have to say this idea seems very well thought out and has been fascinating to follow. The whole HBU stuff hasn't hit the old cerebral cortex since @1999 when I learned about IBU's. It almost seems elegant how they work out.

Good work fellas. I'll have to give you all props. Looks like a good concept and recipe.

I think I will brew this one first thing next near. I'm thinking all centenial, I'm torn between the standard and hop burst schedule. I think this one will turn out fairly dark amber, more of a malt dominated beer so I'm leaning towards the standard.

I've been wanting to try Wyeast 1275, one time I was going to get it but the store was out. This would be a good beer to grow some yeast and do a full cycle with a pale ale and DIPA afterwards.

This looks like it should be a lot of fun. There's no way in hell I'll be brewing on the first, but I'll get to it soon after (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

The chocolate wheat looks particularly interesting. I have just been preparing another big ingredients order from my LHBS (3 hours by plane away) and as I have never used wheat anything in my brewing, I had already added some wheaty things to the list. They don't stock chocolate wheat though, seems none of the mail order shops in europe that I know of do. I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know of any euro mail order shops that stock it?

I'll try american if someone can vouch for one, but most american mail order shops treat people outside the lower 48 to "fedex/ups only" which is simply prohibitively expensive.

Shops that _don't_ carry it:
hopshopuk.com
the-home-brew-shop.co.uk
humle.se

I think I've found a place in denmark that will sell it whole, but I don't have a crusher (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

Failing that, I guess I'll make it with rye (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

Cheers,
Karl P

Karl -- The sponsors of this forum, HBA, will ship via US Postal air mail/priority (there is no sea mail from the US anymore), but it doesn't show up on their site. What I usually do is just choose "Pick up at store," and then in the notes section tell them to send it by US Postal. I also think More Beer still uses US Postal upon request. I think both shops have chocolate wheat.

Chocolate wheat is available from several European maltsters, so I'm a little surprised none of the shops carry it. The chocolate wheat I usually use is from Weyermann in Germany -- good stuff, if you can track it down. Maybe if you contact Weyermann directly, they might be able to point you to some stores that carry their malt.

Good luck!

You can always crush a small amount of specialty grain with a rolling pin or equivalent.

Well, the dane's won't ship to me, (or even outside denmark!) and the german home brew shop listed on weyermann's isn't responding.

BUT! I was making an order with my regular home brew shop, and asked on the side if he could get any. Sure! So it will be here in my next order anyway (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif) Fabulous!

Well, I'm all cued up to brew on January 4th -- that'll be the earliest I can get to it. I'll make my starter around Jan 1st and be all ready to go when the sun comes up on the 4th. Can't wait!

I'm still not sure what hops I'll use, though. My Hops Direct order came in, and the Bravo smell very nice -- so I may make this into an All Bravo Community Brew -- or not. I guess it depends on what inspiration hits me on brew day, or actually the day before when I print out the brew sheet.

And Beeronica -- glad you found your ingredients. A lot of time asking is the best way to find something! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif)

I don't know k-97 but I think S-04 would be much better than US-05.

I just bought some caramel wheat. I guess that will be my new malt in this brew.
