Ingredients (All Grain6.5 gal)

  • 12.0 lbs American 2-row

    American 2-row

    Yields a slightly higher extract than Six Rox brewers Malt. Tends to give a smoother, less grainy flavored beer. Some brewers claim they can detect a significant difference in flavor. Lower protein and will yield a lower color than Six-Row Brewers Malt

  • .5 lbs 2-Row Carapils® Malt; Briess

    2-Row Carapils® Malt; Briess

    Very low color or flavor contribution. 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.

  • 1.5 lbs Crystal 40; Great Western

    A fully modified and saccharified two-row crystal malt roasted to a target color of 40° ASBC. A versatile malt providing moderate color and caramel flavor.

  • .5 tsp Irish Moss - 15 min (omitted from calculations)

    Irish Moss

    A dried red-brown marine algae. Fining agent to remove large proteins. Negatively charged polymer attracts positively charged protein-tannin complexes (extracted from grain husks and hops) during the boil. This action is aided by the clumping of proteins in the boiling process. Irish moss settles to the bottom of the brew kettle with spent hops and hot break material at the end of the boil.

  • 1 tbsp 5.2 pH Stabilizer - to the mash (omitted from calculations)

    5.2 pH Stabilizer

    Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer. A proprietary blend of food-grade phosphate buffers that locks in your mash and kettle water at a pH of 5.2, regardless of the starting pH. It also reduces scaling and mineral deposits on brewing equipment. 1 pound. Use at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of water.

  • .5 tsp Yeast Nutrient (AKA Fermax) - flame out (omitted from calculations)

    Yeast Nutrient (AKA Fermax)

    Helps yeast stay active during fermentation
