I'm planning another low gravity clone of Stu's American Porter for this weekend.
The first attempt is still in the keg and it's a bit of a novelty having a 5% beer on tap, tastes good and I'm trying to make it last.
But I want to tinker with it. The 1.050 version was good, but at 70% or so IBU to OG, needed a bit more 60 minute grit to it, so I'm upping that.
Also going to go with the Styrian Goldings additions at 15 and power off.
There's nothing wrong with all that Cascade, but I'm picking that the SG's will add the other dimension that I remembered in the commercial release that wasn't in my LGC
Advice required, I'm bottling my Maximus Clone tonight. Its slowly meandered down to 1.012 and had been dry hopped for 7 days. When I went to but some finings in last night most of the hops are still floating on top of the beer. I guess some CO2 may be keeping them afloat? Anyway, should I rack the beer off into something else before I bottle? Give the fermenter a swirl to see if the hops will settle out? Any ideas...
