I primed this with DME, 1/2 in bottles and 1/2 in my new Party Pig. For the pig I used apx. .481 cups DME (1 tsp. short of 1/2 a cup) and apx. .625 cups for the bottles. This is a GREAT summer brew that is good after 10 days but excellent after another week. The DME gave it a very creamy head with tiny bubbles.

Bring 2 gal. water to a boil and add Alexanders and DME, stir well to prevent burning or clumping. When water returns to a full boil add 1oz. hops. Boil 45 min. and add 1 tsp. Irish Moss and boil for final 15 min. Cool to apx. 75F. and racked to fermenter, pitched yeast starter, apx 1 pint.
