Oud Bruin Recipe for Split Batch: Any Thoughts?
Hey guys, how does this look as a starting point for an 11-gallon batch of Oud Bruin? I am going to split this recipe (however it ends up) with half getting a second-generation of Roeselare Blend and the other half getting some of Al B's inoculated wood cubes. The Crystal Malts and Honey Malt are there mainly for providing unfermentables for the bugs, and maybe some honey-like aroma in the final end product (we'll see if that turns out at all). Plus, the Special B might give it a nice reddish color. The gravity is on the high end of the style, but IS just within the style limits, but if that is an issue, let me know.

Any thoughts on how warm to mash this?

Any & all thoughts/criticisms are welcome.

-Cheers

Hey dude

I see aromatic...is that the special B by accident? If so, a 2 pounds seems a bit heavy to me, especially given the abundance of crystal malts.

Are you going to primary on the bugs or do this in secondary? If the latter, what yeast are you starting with?

Re: Oud Bruin Recipe for Split Batch: Any Thoughts
Hey Ryan, no the Aromatic is intentional. I thought that ~1 lb. per 5-gallon batch (or in this case, 2 lbs. for an 11 gallon batch) would be o.k. since the bugs will eat through just about everything in the batch. I intended the Crystal 135 to represent either Special B or Crystal 120 (whatever I can get my hands on). I know it is a lot of Crystal Malt, but again, my rationale is that the bugs will eat through it all. If that is still overkill then I can drop it appropriately.

Yeast . . . I am planning on US-56 (whatever is is now) for primary and bugs in the secondary, at least for Al's bug cubes. I may use US-56 along with the Roeselare bug cake from a previous batch for the other half of the recipe.

-Cheers

Oh okay Dave

I didnt' realize you were synonomizing (sp?) crystal 130 with special B.

Yeah, I am away from my home computer so used the Tastybrew.com Recipe Calculator instead of ProMash. However, if the amounts are still out-of-whack, feel free to let me know.

The real recipe should look like this:

I like the amount of crystal. Mash @ 150-152 should do.
