Changing up my brewing procedure to see how the beer comes out. Trying a lower mash temperature and a quicker chill. Keeping the beer simple to better notice these changes.

Grain Bill

  • 1.1 Kg Maris otter

Hop Schedule

  • 1g Amarillo @ 30 minutes
  • 2g Amarillo @ 20 minutes
  • 2g Amarillo @ 10 minutes
  • 3g Amarillo @ Flameout
  • 5g Amarillo Dryhop for 3 days


  • Batch sparge with water 70C
  • Bring to boil and leave for 1 hour
  • Chill in ice bath straight after boil


  • The ice bath got the beer under 30C in about 15 minutes. Much quicker than what I normally do. I left it for a bit longer in the ice bath before pitching
