DELICIOUS! The toasted grains add a roasty flavor and contribute a distinct bitterness. Nice bitter-sweet balance and great aftertaste. Hopheads may want to increase the flavor hops and/or try dryhopping. Note: as hard as it is, try to save some for about 6 weeks after bottling-the taste just keeps getting better.

Mix grains, put 1/2 of the grains on a cookie sheet and toast 10 min at 325 degrees with the oven door cracked (smells great!). Put grains in cold water, bring to 150 degrees, hold for 25 min. Remove grains, bring to boil, add extract, cascade, and 0.5 oz perle. Add 1.5 oz perle in hop bag last 10 min.
