This recipe came out kinda sweet and extremely high in alcohol (probably 8-12%). I REALLY wanna do this with a hydrometer and get the specifics down so I can hit this every time. Make sure you eat before having a few of these!


Recipe type: Partial Mash
Batch Size: 5 gal
Starting Gravity: -
Finishing Gravity: -
Time in Boil: 60 mins
Primary Fermentation: 1 week
Secondary Fermentation: N/A
Additional Fermentation: N/A



Boiled grains up to 170 degrees, let stand for 45 mins Sparged w/ 3 gals water Start 2 gal water boil Boil extracts for 55 mins and 2 oz Cascade Add finishing hops at 60 mins. Cool wort in ice bath and drop temp to 70 degees Strain into fermenter and pitch yeast. Put fermenter in crawl space for a week expecting it to take longer. Yeast was spent after first week probably due to temp. Boiled 3/4 cup of corn sugar in 1 cup water. Racked to bottling bucket and stir in sugar/water. Carbonation only took 3 weeks in crawl space.
