Brew #35: Bitter 1046

December 9, 2012

Bog standard pale ale. The ready-crushed pale malt was too finely crushed, lots of flour in the mix and thus Braumeister circulated the wort very slowly and it took ages to clear. Such a difference to the quality of the wheat malt from the same company (Viking Malt). Also, the pale malt has a lemony sour smell to it. No problems with the OG though and the smell disappears when it gets wet. With this crushed pale malt I need to increase the mash times and pause the mash schedule a few times in order to stir and loosen it up.
