(This brewer had some problems with this batch, but it's
likely related to technique...the recipe looks sound. --Ed.)
- 3 lbs 5 oz Munton & Fison American Light Malt Syrup (boil 60 mins)
- 1 lb Munton & Fison Light Dried Malt Extract (boil 60 mins)
- 1 oz Willamette Pellets (3.9% Alpha) (boil 45 mins)
- 1/2 oz Cascade Pellets (5.6% Alpha) (boil 5 mins)
- 1.75 oz WYeast #2035 American Lager
- 1 teaspoon Irish Moss (boil 10 mins)
- 4 oz Malto Dextrin (boil 30 mins)(note: I have no idea why I used
in a beer that traditionally is not supposed to have mouth fee
but it was there screaming to be used)
On commencing of boil, I added the Extracts and let boil for 15 minutes.
I added the Willamette and let boil for another 15 minutes.
I added the Malto Dextrin and let boil for 20 minutes.
I added the Irish Moss and let boil for 5 minutes.
I added the Cascade and let boil for the final 5 minutes.
I transferred the wort to my 5 gallon bucket and let sit overnight.
I transferred the wort from the 5 gallon bucket to my 7 gallon bucket,
and aerated for 30 minutes using an aquarium pump (all equipment
sanitized in bleach). I let the head settle down, pitched the yeast and
let sit at room temperature.
Once the yeast started showing signs of activity I moved the bucket to my
garage which was at a temperature of 54 degrees (f). After fermenting in
the primary 1 week I transferred it to the secondary.
