In order to use up some of the hops I had stored in the freezer I decided to brew the Jaipur Clone from Brewday 26 again. The hop schedule needed to be tweaked slightly to fit my leftover inventory but the vast majority of the recipe was the same as last time and fortunately I had a decent selection of hops on hand to make reasonable substitutions so the end result shouldn’t stray too far from the original clone.
The recipe for the Jaipur Clone:
- 5.55kg Maris Otter Malt
- 0.45kg Vienna Malt
- 12g Centennial hops @ 60 minutes
- 15g Northern Brewer hops @ 60 minutes
- 10g Ahtanum hops @ 60 minutes
- 12g Centennial hops @ 30 minutes
- 10g Ahtanum hops @ 30 minutes
- 10g Chinook hops @ 30 minutes
- 16g Centennial hops @ 0 minutes
- 48g Chinook hops @ 0 minutes
- 24g Ahtanum hops @ 0 minutes
- 40g Amarillo hops @ 0 minutes
- 1 tsp Irish Moss @ 10 minutes
- 1 pkt Nottingham yeast
The brewday was going perfectly until I took my eye off the ball and forgot to add the Irish Moss to the end of the boil! Doh!!! As you can see from the pictures above how hazy the beer has finished up as a result of this error! Hopefully crash cooling once fermentation is complete will help drop out a lot of this murk though and the final beer might still end up pretty clear! Alternatively I will be finding out just how important the Irish Moss addition actually is for beer clarity!
OG was bang on target at 1.058 so once the yeast has done its stuff this Jaipur Clone should come out around 5.2% ABV. This is around 1% less than the real thing but I intentionally brewed this lower to make it a bit more session-able!
