This is Chris, Head Brewer at Põhjala. Apologies for the late reply, it’s been a busy week here.
Awesome to hear you’d like to try brewing Öö, it started on the homebrew scale so it’s quite an honour to hear that 🙂
36% pale malt
39% munich malt (light)
9.75% carafa type 2 special
4.9% dark roasted crystal (Simpsons)
4.9% chocolate malt
4.9% cara 300
And about 10% of the fermentables will come from a dark muscavado sugar – currently we add that at T-60.
We use Viking malt from Finland for the majority of our malts, and they have a very British style, so 2 row probably wouldn’t be the best substitute for the pale malt, I’d rather try Maris otter if you can get it.
Gravity starts at 24.5° and finishes at 6.5°, and we bitter to approx 65-70 IBU using magnum, with a finishing dose of Northern Brewer at T-00.
In terms of yeast, we ferment this one at cool temps of around 16°c with WLP090, San Diego Super yeast, which we use as our house strain. A cool fermentation helps as you really can’t feel the alcohol.
Water profile helps a lot as well, but that would be harder to give some tips on for me.
Otherwise, that’s about it – hope it helps, and good brewing!
