This recipe is a modification of one I found in Cats Meow. The gravity at tranfer to secondary was around 1.024. My friend who this is named after likes to drink it before it is actually ready, but given about 3 weeks in the bottle the flavor mellows quite nicely. I'm sure this recipe would work very well in a Corny Keg which I plan to try soon.


Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 5 gallons
Starting Gravity: 1.058
Finishing Gravity: 1.016
Time in Boil: 60 minutes
Primary Fermentation: Glass 5 days @ 60-65 degrees F

Steep grains in 2 gallons water for 20 minutes at 150o F. Sparge grains with an additional gallon. Bring to a boil, add extracts and honey. Return to a boil and add hops as per schedule. Rehydrate yeast. Add additional 2 gallons water and cool wort to 70o F, I use a submersion wort chiller. Pitch yeast, transfer to primary fermenter and ferment at 60-65o. Transfer to secondary after 5 days and ferment for an additional 2 weeks at 65o. Prime with 3/4 cup corn sugar and bottle. After 2 weeks, cool and enjoy.
