Golden Days of Summer Ale


Recommended Posts

 

Put this in the Droid 3/9/19 and kegged seven days later. As per Brewprint review - 

“Lovely pure white head. Nice and crisp with a citrusy background to the taste.

Finishing with a bitterness that’s held up by the sweetness of malt.
Another for the repeat queue - (are two droids enough?🤔)”
 
Don’t wait for summer.

My ingredients for Golden Days of Summer Ale brewprint should hopefully be arriving today (got the SMS to say expect a delivery from Coopers Online Store today - always a great message to receive! 😇 ).  The spreadsheet that's been floating around recommends an amarillo dry hop of 50g's (!!!) and appears to be in addition to the 2x H6's that form part of the recipe... 

It's pushed it's way up my queue as I have 100g's of amarillo hops just sitting in my fridge doing nothing... keen to crack em open and start experimenting!

I’d say the the Amarillo is in lieu of the the H6 as both would be over the top for 10l imo. Personally for a first time a I’d brew to the recipe. If I were to add Amarillo then 20g would be enough with the H6.

Bottled my Russian Imperial Stout last night and decided to continue my roll and started the Big Brown Imperial Ale instead. New plan is to do this one then the Coopers Old Special Stout and then do my best to mature them to June 2020. After those, next 'drinking' brew will be GDSA 😎

Currently on day 5 in the droid and just dry hopped the 50g Amarillo. Knew I'd get there eventually lol.

Ended up slowing down on my beer drinking (forayed into Single Malt Whisky's for a bit, I hate to mix and match so whatever I drink first for the evening I'll end up sticking with) and subsequently ran out of brew bottles. Last brew was English Pub Draught bottled 24/2 then gave the droid a big clean and a 6 week break. 

Have started enjoying a daily brew or 2 again as of late and have freed up enough bottles for a new batch.  Sanitised ol' droidy last week and got cracking on the GDAS. Great to have it humming again in the kitchen and using the light to check on the brew 😇

Nice one mate , yeah sometimes good to have a little break . My stockpile started growing larger then a drink it in a timeframe amount so i gave mine a pause for a fortnight. And i am the same as you partial to a whisky or two , i usually save mine for night caps though , so a few beers early never hurts ;-). Id be broke if I just drank my whisky 🤣🤣🤣

The droid is back to work now haha . Just had to get through a few bottles to dwindle down the stock. Cant make it look like I have "too" many beers haha.  Plus after this Porter I am still waiting on my delivery haha

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, just wondering how you guys went with the hops on this one.

The new dry hopped version of the brewprint has 25g of Amarillo, but I can see others here using 50g before this version was released....  What's been everyone's experience here?
Was also thinking of throwing in some Citra for good measure, maybe a 30/20 split.

Welcome Dial-IN 

No need to apologize for bring up an old thread. That's the thread for that brew, anytime someone has a question about a brew that is the place to ask. Saves starting new threads on the same thing. Also a good reference if you want to find out information on a particular brew.

25g of Citra and Amarillo would be a nice place to start.

Depends on how hoppy you like it. It's really good fun playing around with different hops and combinations.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm a fan of big fruity IPA, IIPA, NEIPA etc so the more hops the better!
