Ended up with an OG at 1.045. Since it was so cold out, I decided not to get the hoses out and let chilling happen via ambient temperature. Racked into the Anvil brew bucket since it can handle heat. Apparently the Tilt can handle temps up to 185, so I put it in at the higher temps.1/29/2023 8:31:51 AM3752#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=212#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Doodle Bop Belgium Singlehttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=212#comment3751Doodle Bop Belgium Single Cold brew day.

Brew day went ok, although I did have some issues. I misplaced the clamp that I use to control the flow of the recirculation. Because of this, I overflowed the basket and ended up with grains in the pump. Eventually, I used a crescent wrench to get circulation working ok. By the time I had to rack to the fermentor, though, I was not able to use the pump and ended up using gravity (old school). Anyway, the OG turned out right on plan and I got a little more than the 5.5 gallons.

Tilt was still the same, but I measured the OG at 1.013, which makes this exactly a 5% abv beer. Perfect. The beer is a lot more red / orange than I thought it would be. I think it actually looks perfect for an amber lager. Flavor exactly what you would expect with a 100% Vienna malt beer. Currently sitting around waiting for a beer to clear out of the beer fridge, but I'm ok waiting on this one.11/17/2022 1:25:10 PM3700#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=208#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Jethro Bud Nelson Merican Lite Lagerhttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=202#comment3699Jethro Bud Nelson Merican Lite Lager Killed the keg.
