Ingredients (Extract11 gal)

  • 16 lbs Wheat Liquid; Alexanders

    Wheat Liquid; Alexanders

    American-made malt extract which is famous for its very light color. The light color of this malt extract makes it ideal for brewing many American and German style beers. 60% wheat & 40% 2 row barley, great base for wheat beers.

  • 1 lbs White Table Sugar (Sucrose)

    White Table Sugar (Sucrose)

    Common household table/baking sugar. Lightens flavor and body of beer. Can contribute a cider-like flavor to the beer if not cold-fermented or used in large quantities.

  • 2 oz Hallertau - 4.5 AA% whole; boiled 60 min

    Hallertau

    Good for all around bittering and finishing stock ales, Belgian ales, and continental style lagers. Aroma is mild, pleasant and flowery.

  • 1 oz Hallertau - 3.5 AA% whole; boiled 10 min

    Hallertau

    Good for all around bittering and finishing stock ales, Belgian ales, and continental style lagers. Aroma is mild, pleasant and flowery.

  • Fermentis US-56 Safale US-56

    Fermentis US-56 Safale US-56

    The most famous ale yeast strain found across America, now available as a ready-to-pitch dry yeast. Produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Sedimentation: low to medium. Final gravity: medium. Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C ± 3C. Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C. Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.

Notes

Use 2 packs american dry yeast. If LME is 4lb cans, use 16lb total. If LME is 3.3lb cans, use 13.2lb total and supplement with 3.2lb of Dry Light (or ultralight) extract.
