Recipe added: 01/05/99

Bottling this tonight. If it tastes HALF as good as it did when I transferred it to the secondary, it'll rock. DEFINATELY USE A BLOWOFF!!! It alsmost blew the top off a 6 1/2 gal platic fermenter. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a 1" blowoff in a carboy for this brew.


Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 5 US Gallons
Starting Gravity:
Finishing Gravity:
Time in Boil: 1 hour
Primary Fermentation: 3-5 days
Secondary Fermentation: 1 week



Crack/steep grains @ 170 for 30 minutes. Increase heat. Pull grains when water hits 200. Add extract. When foam dies, add oz Chinooks. Boil, adding Cascades & Irish Moss (seperately---couple of minutes in between---hops first) 10-15 minutes before end of boil. Cool quick, and siphon into fermenter, aerating well. Add water to make 5 gallons. PUT BLOW-OFF TUBE ON FERMENTER!!! Ferment 3-5 days (or until done). Rack to secondary. Let settle 7 days. Bottle using remaining chinooks to make a "tea" with your sugar. Bottle and wait as long as you can (hopefully 3 weeks) and drink it.
