Yes, that’s right, I’m making a batch of Chicken Scrotum Ale at this very moment. It has no relation to Papazian’s (in)famous Goat Scrotum Ale, which I believe may be a stout. This is just a simple light bodied ale, made with light malt extract (liquid), Cluster and Willamette hops, and a neutral dry ale yeast. No extra malt, no adjuncts, no extra shit.
I’ve been out of the beer brewing business for a good 5-6 months, and this is my way of easing back into it.
Chicken Scrotum Ale
FG: 1.011 (est)
Colour: 6 SRM
7 lbs light malt extract
1 oz Cluster hops (6.7%) – 60 mins
0.5 oz Willamette hops (4.5%) – 10 mins
0.5 oz Willamette hops (4.5%) – 1 min
Safale US-05 dry yeast
Not the craziest or most daring recipe out there. It’s not an Imperial Chicken Scrotum Ale. But it’s what I feel like brewing tonight. Besides, this is sort of like a dry run to see if the new-and-improved Shepody Brewery is up to doing a full scale all-grain batch. Next will be the club stout, then probably the Lefty Blonde Ale.
