Peach Cobbler Ale – Homebrew Batch #13

Friday afternoon I brewed a 2 gallon batch based on Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Peach Cobbler Ale.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get fresh peaches, so I used a can of peaches in lite syrup – I took the peaches (about 8 peach halves) out and diced them up, and saved the syrup for mixed drinks later in the evening.

The recipe, uploaded to Hopville, is as follows:

Mash: 60 minutes at 154 degrees:

1.75 lbs Maris Otter

1.4 lbs Biscuit malt

0.75lbs Crystal 20 malt

.375 lbs flaked oats


0.2 oz Columbus as boil begins

0.2 oz Saaz after 30 minutes

0.2 oz Saaz after 59 minutes total.

At 60 minutes, turn off heat, add 1c light brown sugar, along with the peaches.

Brooklyn Brew Shop’s recipe has the peaches being removed before fermentation after the wort cools, but I just left them in there.   I used Nottingham Dry Ale Yeast.

Original Gravity was 1.06, and the ingredients for this 2 gallon batch cost $14.08

I will bottle in 3 weeks.
