Sub any LDME, do without the polyclar if you must, and use 1 ounce whole and/or plugged tettnang hops for aroma instead of the 2 oz pellets if you have them. This exact recipe turned out so good I was amazed. Good luck, and believe me, this one's really worth it for the hop-heads!

Finishing Gravity: 1.009
Time in Boil: 60

Steeped grains 25 min @ 155 deg F., removed from heat, added LDME, bittering hops, boiled 50 min. Irish moss for 20 min, Pitched at 76 deg F. Racked to secondary with polyclar after 7 days. 3 more days added 2 oz tettnang pellets in hop bag, could not remove bag, so racked again after 13 days. Left in tertiary fermenter 16 days, then bottled. A great beer, maybe to be improved by leaving dry aroma hops only 7 days, I'll soon find out!
