Batch 31: California Common

Taking on Yooper’s California Common (Anchor Steam Clone)

slightly modified, due to available ingredients 🙂 With the wonderful help of Paul Smaldino and Evan Hermann (for at least the first 1/2-2/3 of the process)

SG: 1.023 at 135* (1.037 corrected)
OG: 1.055

8.5# 2-row
1.5# C60

1oz NB hops 60min
.5oz NB hops 30min
.5oz NB hops 0min

added 1# sugar to the end of the boil

at the mid-range of attenuation of the yeast (68%), we should get ~5% ABV


3/21/14 delicious but needs more hop flavor and aroma! Maybe dry hop next time
