Brew one for me... hell, brew fifteen.



Whilst trying to decide what to brew for our fifteenth batch, I decided that this would be interesting:


I wanted to try something mild and very digestible so I selected this Irish yeast strain:

YEAST STRAIN: 1084 | Irish Ale™

This versatile yeast ferments extremely well in dark worts. It is a good choice for most high gravity beers. Beers fermented in the lower temperature range produce a dry, crisp profile with subtle fruitiness. Fruit and complex esters will increase when fermentation temperatures are above 64°F (18°C).

Origin:
Flocculation: Medium
Attenuation: 71-75%
Temperature Range: 62-72F, 16-22C
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV

In case any of were not aware, all my recipes (along with all my brewing notes) are publicly available at http://theabbey.catholicbeer.com

Hope to see you all tomorrow!

Cheers,

joel.
