WGV "showcase" Ale

    I was brewing up the “Scottish Stout” (thanks to the generosity of a couple of members of this site, who sent me hops, after I foolishly didn’t order any) fully intending to bitter with two ounces of Whitbread Goldings Variety hops. As I was draining the second sparge… I realized that I just couldn’t do it… I simply could not bring myself to boil off the wonderful flavor and aroma of one of the most delightful hop varieties ever. I had the scale set up, and the bag in my hand, and I thought… “4-ounces of WGV? I can do so much better with this” So the stout got an ounce of centennial (thanks lake), and 0.7 ounces of left-over fuggle hop pellets… it will be fine.
    By the time the stout started to boil, I had the following recipe mapped out in my mind…. All I need is an imaginative name for it…

    For a 5-gallon batch:
    (Original Gravity) O.G. = 1.074
    (Final Gravity) F.G. = 1.019
    (Bitterness) IBU = 64
    (Color) SRM = 15
    (Alcohol) APV = 7.2%
    Calories per 12-oz bottle = 240





    10 pounds Pale Malt
    3 pounds Munich Malt (7L)
    9- ounces Crystal 60
    3-ounces chocolate malt

    1-ounce Target hops 60-min.
    1-ounce WGV 10-minutes
    1-ounce WGV 5-minutes
    2-ounces WGV flameout
    S-04 yeast
    Mash at 155 (single infusion) Boil first runnings during first sparge rest.
    Batch sparge twice. (rest 20-minutes)

    I originally thought to make my normal unnatural offspring of an ESB and an English IPA, but wanted to do something a little different, more of an amber, with a different malt profile. I think the WGV hops will really shine in here.
    (I also have plans for the whole leaf fuggles that came in the mail too… be great dry hopped in a “fix” for the arrogant bastard)

    goldings locks and the 7 ounces : of course this means you have to add a 2oz dry hop

    wasn't Goldilocks the one with the three ounces? (The first beer was too hoppy... the second too sweet... but the third was just right...)

    I think the seven ounces was snow white.....
