Brew #55: Worthington’s White Shield (IPA) Clone

October 19, 2013

Historically the same beer as Bass Red Triangle. This clone is not an exact copy of course but similar at least, I wanted a simple grist which would hopefully showcase Maris Otter (Thomas Fawcett) malt which I’m using for the first time. Target OG 1053 meant I had to leave sugar out of the fermentables as otherwise I would’ve been left with an odd amount of MO. Wheat is there just to help with head and its retention.

Speidel Braumeister heated up the strike water from 9 to 45 degC in 39 minutes ie 65 seconds/degC.
