Im going to brew this as my first once my brewery is up and running. I was wondering, what is the reason for sparging at 6pH and, I calculated the post boil gravity at 1.039, does that look about right?

Keep the pH below 6 to help minimize tannin extraction from the grain husks. Tannins have a tongue-drying astringent taste like over steeped tea or strong red wine. For more details see the sparging step in our BREW DAY STEP BY STEP:

http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/brew-day-step-by-step?page=8

Post boil gravity on that recipe is 1.045.

Sounds right, but it all depends on your boil-off rate.

Just poured my first glass from the keg and it was amazing! I'm very pleased with the results as this was my first beer I've made with Kals system. The extra citra hops gives it a phenomenal smell. The updated water profile definitely highlights the fruitiness from the hops. The only minor thing I was disappointed on was the appearance. It has a hazy look to it despite cold crashing and gelatin fining. I don't know whether it's from extra dry hopping or my struggles using a counter flow chiller for the first time, but it's a great tasting beer. I really look forward to making plenty of new beers this winter!

Glad you're enjoying it! As far as the haziness goes, how long has it been sitting at serving temp on CO2? Could be chill haze (not an issue). Just give it a couple of weeks to carb up and clear.

It's been carbonating at 33 degrees in my chest freezer for 2 weeks before I moved it to the kegorator. After drinking a few glasses, the clarity has significantly improved. I probably was getting a little sediment that escaped from racking after fining with gelatin.

Yup. First pint or two will have some cloudiness because of that. Cheers!

Anywhere from fridge temp (38F) all the way to 50F is fine. You can go a bit colder given how 'quaffable' this beer is, but on the warmer side will bring out the flavours more. It's a bit of a personal preference. From Randy Mosher's Tasting Beer book:

American Mainstream Light Lagers 33 40 F
Pale Lagers, Pilsners 38 45 F
Cream & Blonde Ales 40 45 F
Nitro Stouts 40 45 F
Belgian Pale Ales, Abbey Tripels 40 45 F
Wheat Beers 40 50 F
Lambics 40 50 F
Dark Lagers 45 50 F
American Pale Ales & IPAs 45 50 F
Stouts, Porters 45 55 F
Strong Lagers 50 55 F
Real & Cask Ales 50 55 F
Belgian Dubbels 50 55 F

Good luck! It's a great beer (in my humble opinion). I like to keep it on tap at all times.

Do you take into account loss to hop absorption in your recipes?

Yes.

I usually make 12 gallons of wort (boil boil) to account for various losses which ends up with 10 gallons kegged. If the amount of hops are very low, I may target 11 gallons instead. Every setup has different losses, every recipe is different, so adjust for what works for your setup.

Hi guys

I recently finished my electric brewery build and have done my first brew (Electric Pale sessionable version)....all went very well.

Just a quick question about the recipes on this site - The dry hop amounts....given its a double brew, is this amount of hops for the whole 12 gallons? If I ferment in two fermenters, do I need to half the dry hop amounts?

I know I've seen this somewhere in the forums before but I just can't remember what the answer was.

Thanks in advance guys

Hi!

All of the items listed in the recipes are for the stated total amount of beer that the recipe makes (usually 12 gallons). How many kettles or fermenters you use is completely up to you.

So if you ferment the entire amount across 2 fermenters, split the dry hops evenly across both.

Good luck!

Kal

Recipe has been re-written and moved to our new site.

See: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/pages/electric-pale-ale-sessionable-version

This thread will remain open for questions. Cheers!
