Ingredients (All Grain12 gal)

  • 7 lbs 2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    Mild malty flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Base malt for all beer styles • Smoother, less grainy flavor than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slightly higher yield than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slight lower protein than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 7 lbs 6-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    6-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    Mild grain malty flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Base malt for all beer styles • More husk than 2-Row Brewers Malt making it well suited for high adjunct brewing. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 1 lbs Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 1 lbs Honey Malt

    Honey Malt

    Nutty honey flavor. For brown ales, Belgian wheats, bocks and many other styles.

  • 2 lbs White Wheat Malt; Briess

    White Wheat Malt; Briess

    Sweet, malty, wheat, floury flavors. Characteristics & Applications: • Imparts malty flavor not obtainable from raw wheat. • Use with rice hulls to improve lautering and help prevent stuck mash. • White Wheat Malt contributes to foam production and foam stability.

  • 3 lbs Yellow Corn (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Yellow Corn (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • Pregelatinized Yellow Corn Flakes can be used as a cereal adjunct. The flakes can be added to the mash without first using a cereal cooker. The pregelatinized flakes will give a higher yield and a more trouble-free brew than a conventional flaked corn. Also, the corn has been degermed (the oil removed), thus eliminating rancidity. • Using Pregelatinized Yellow Corn Flakes as an adjunct produces a lower color in the finished beer without lowering the original gravity. • Pregelatinized Yellow Corn Flakes produce a beer with a mild, less malty flavor • Pregelatinized Yellow Corn Flakes produce a drier, more crisp beer. • Use up to 40% as a cereal adjunct in the total grist • Add directly to the mash with the malts. Do not mill. A single or multiple temperature infusion can be used. Conversion time and lautering time will be normal.

  • 1 lbs Rice (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Rice (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • Pregelatinized Rice Flakes have been produced specifically for brewing, developing characteristics necessary for easy and efficient use in a brewhouse. The process of gelatinizing makes the starches readily soluble and digestible by the naturally occurring enzymes in barley malt. This allows the flakes to be incorporated directly into the mash with other grains. • Because flakes have a large surface area and are pre-cooked, they hydrate and disintegrate quickly. Filtration time will be normal. • There is no need to mill Rice Flakes. However, they can be put through the mill if that is the easiest means of adding them to the mash. • Pregelatinized Rice Flakes are made from medium-grain rice and produce a light, clean and crisp characteristic to the finished beer. • Use a slightly lower conversion temperature and extend the conversion time 15 minutes to obtain maximum efficiency. • Use up to 40% as a cereal adjunct in the total grist.

  • 1 lbs Rice Hulls

    Rice Hulls

    Rice Hulls are used as a filter medium, mostly used in all grain wheat beers to help prevent a stuck mash.

  • .5 oz Northern Brewer - 8.0 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min

    Northern Brewer

    Used for bittering with strong flavors and very fragrant in steam beers, dark English ales, and German lagers. Aroma is medium-strong with evergreen and mint overtones.

  • 1.5 oz Mt. Hood - 5.0 AA% pellets; boiled 30 min

    Mt. Hood

    Used mainly for aroma and flavor in American and German style ales and lagers. Aroma is mild, pleasant, light, and clean.

  • 1 oz Citra™ - 12.0 AA% pellets; boiled 5 min

    Citra™

    Citra™ is a special aroma hop variety developed by the Hop Breeding Company (a joint venture between John I. Haas, Inc. and Select Botanicals Group, LLC). It was released in 2007. Citra™ has fairly high alpha acids and total oil contents with a low percentage of cohumulone content. The variety imparts interesting citrus and tropical fruit characters to beer.

  • White Labs WLP080 Cream Ale Yeast Blend

    White Labs WLP080 Cream Ale Yeast Blend

    This is a blend of ale and lager yeast strains. The strains work together to create a clean, crisp, light American lager style ale. A pleasing estery aroma may be perceived from the ale yeast contribution. Hop flavors and bitterness are slightly subdued. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation, from the lager yeast.
