Crush your grains and add to 2 1/2 gal cold water in your brewpot. Bring to a boil for 20 minutes. Remove the grain bag and put it into your funnel and allow it to drip into your carboy (put about a gal.of water in your carboy)to get all the rich flavor out of your grains. Add the dark malt extract and return to boil. Then add your Hersbrucher and Fuggles hops and the two cups of Karo Syrup.(I know that many brewers don't like to add adjuncts but Karo really give the wort a kick in the gravity.) Let the wort boil for 30 minutes then add the Cascade Hops and Irish Moss. After 15 min. turn off the heat and strain the wort into your carboy. Add cold water to bring the volume to 5 gallons. Pitch the yeast when cool. Allow to ferment on the carboy for 7 days.(Make sure your blow-off tube has a bucket under it because this is an active ferment)Carefully rack the brew to a second carboy which has the 2 lbs. corn sugar boiled in 1-2 Qts. water. Attach the stopper and blowoff again. After 7 days bottle with 1/3 cup of priming sugar or malt extract. Age for about 7-14 days
