I'm looking to make a beer for my sisters wedding to an Australian and I am hoping that I might be able to get some seasoned pro advice from, well, a seasoned pro.
Soon to be brother-in-law prefers lagers and pilsners but I don't have the capability to ferment any lower than 17degC. He also doesn't like wheat beers or stouts/porters. So I'm limited as to what I can brew but I think there's something out there that will match my requirements!
So if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on recipes I'd love to hear them. I'm liking the sound of Galaxy hops for the Australian influence and perhaps Pacific Jade for NZ?
Nelson Sauvin and AUS Galaxy, seem to be a popular combo for pale ales and IPA's.
I'm not gonna claim to be a seasoned pro but I will chuck out a recipe you could use as a starting point.
Golden Ale / NZ pils
100% Wyermans Pils extract to about 5% abv
Xg Nelson Sav 60mins (depends how bitter you want it, 30ibu's?)
15g Nelson sav 10mins
15g NZ Cascade 10mins
7g Nelson Sav dry hop
7g NZ Cascade dry hop
other half batch
14g something australian dry hop
Ferment with S05 @ 18degrees
Thanks JR. Thats very similar to what I came up with last night.
7% Caramel Malt 20L - Steep for 20 mins
Pilsen Light DME 30% at boil
Pilsen Light LME 61% at end of boil.
10g Pacific Jade 60mins (Bitter)
10g Nelson Sauvin 20mins (Bitter)
20g Nelson Sauvin 10mins (Aroma)
20g Galaxy 10mins (Aroma)
Then ferment with S05 at 18 deg.... Expected IBU is 38 and ABV 4.5%... Nice and mellow for the Aussie with limited beer taste!
