This is my most recent favorite all-grain recipe.
Brown/Golden ale. Light, refreshing and a nice aroma of chocolate malt
for interest. Could be made with extracts by using 1 can each of pale
malt and wheat extract syrup (or powder). Easy drinking beer.
- 3 pounds, pale malt
- 3 pounds, wheat malt
- 4 ounces, medium crystal (~40L)
- 1 ounce, chocolate malt
- 1/3 ounce, Chinook Pellets for 45 minutes (4 HBU)
- 1/2 ounce, Cascade Pellets for 20 (2.5 HBU)
- 1/2 ounce, Tettnanger Pellets for 10 minutes
- Whitbread ale yeast
Treat 7 gallons water with 1/4 ounce gypsum. Mash in 8 quarts at 170F
for a target of 156F. When beer is fermented, prime with 1/2 cup sugar,
fine with 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin, keg or bottle.
