Ingredients (All Grain5.25 gal)

  • 8.5 lbs Golden Promise Malt; Thomas Fawcett

    Golden Promise Malt; Thomas Fawcett

  • .6 lbs Munich 10L Malt; Briess

    Munich 10L Malt; Briess

    Golden orange hue with a robust malty flavor.

  • .4 lbs Carastan® Malt; Bairds Malt

    Carastan® Malt; Bairds Malt

    A British pale, brown-colored, crystal malt with a caramel/toffee flavor and hints of toasted bread.

  • .4 lbs Crystal 75; Great Western

    Crystal 75; Great Western

    This two-row malt is roasted to product a color of 75° ASBC. At this roasting level the toffee flavors join the caramel character for a more complex flavor.

  • .25 lbs Crystal 120; Great Western

    Crystal 120; Great Western

    As longer roasting times are used to reach colors of 120° ASBC, this crystal malt takes on a fairly intense toffee flavor but still avoids the burnt character of chocolate or black malts.

  • .75 oz East Kent Goldings - 5.0 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min

    East Kent Goldings

    Mild, slightly flowery.

  • Wyeast 1056 American Ale™

    Wyeast 1056 American Ale™

    Used commercially for several classic American ales. This strain ferments dry, finishes soft, smooth and dean, and is very well balanced.

Notes

Mash at 156 for 60 min using 1.3qt water/# grain ratio. Raise to 168 for 10 min. collect first runnings then sparge at 170 to collect a total volume of 7 gallons or enough to yield you ~5.25 gal at end of boil. Ferment at 64 for 7-14 days. bottle condition at 1.5 volumes or 1-1.5 volumes if force carbing in keg. Serve at 52-55 deg. Cheers!

Great tasty session beer

Another one of my most requested beers. This one gets better with age and starts hitting it's prime at about 1.5-2 months. It's good while it's still a little green but better with a little patience. Cheers!
