Batch 145 – Hnedý Medveď Brown IPA – All Grain

This is another extract and grain recipe that I converted to all-grain.  I had not made this beer in a while (nearly four years!) and New Year’s Eve in 2017 seemed as good a time as any to turn it out again.

The ingredients, purchased from the local home brew store, consisted of:

  • 8 pounds Pilsner Malt
  • 1/2 pound Carafa II
  • 1/2 pound 80° Crystal Malt
  • 1/2 pound Caramunich Malt
  • 24 ounces honey
  • 1 ounce Centennial hops (9.7% alpha acid)
  • 1 ounce Nugget hops (13.3% alpha acid)
  • 1 ounce Columbus hops (17.0% alpha acid)
  • White Labs British Ale Yeast (WLP 005)
Batch 145 Ingredients

Honey Brown IPA – also known as Hnedý Medveď (Brown Bear)

My targets, based on my brewing software, are:

  • Original Gravity:  1.061
  • Final Gravity:  1.010
  • ABV:  6.6%
  • 106 IBU
  • 23° Lovibond

First runnings came out pretty dark…

Hnedy Medveď- more like Čierny Medveď

…but ended up being diluted some during the sparge.  It was a nice, dark brown when I it was time to keg it about four weeks after the brew day.

I hit the original and final gravities, too!  All in all, everything came out great!!
