Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 15.5 lbs Maris Otter Pale

    Maris Otter Pale

    An English thoroughbred and a favored choice of malt for many brewers. Simpsons' Maris Otter has a rich and nutty flavor and despite its small, berry size has a strong husk. This malt delivers predictable brewhouse performance with modest, yet consistent extracts. Brewers can expect good runoffs with clear wort.

  • .25 lbs Pale Chocolate Malt; Thomas Fawcett

    Roasted Barley; Thomas Fawcett

    Intensely bitter coffee flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Use 3-7% for coffee flavor in Porter and Stout • Use 2-5% in Nut Brown Ales. • Use Chocolate Malt or Black Malt in combination with Roasted Barley to obtain desired color. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 2 oz Galena - 13.0 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min


    Neutral. This hop can be very bitter, but blends well with finishing hops. Used in American ales and lagers, but suitable for all beer styles. Aroma is medium but pleasant.

  • .5 oz Nugget - 13.0 AA% pellets; boiled 30 min


    This is very bitter and often used in medium to dark ales and lagers. Aroma is quite heavy and herbal.

  • 2.75 oz Amarillo® - 8.5 AA% whole; boiled 15 min


    Grown in Washington. A newer multi-use hop with a nice citrus-flower bouquet and medium-high acid content suited for bittering. Used in American Ales and IPAs.

  • White Labs WLP060 American Ale Yeast Blend

    White Labs WLP060 American Ale Yeast Blend

    Our most popular yeast strain is WLP001, California Ale Yeast. This blend celebrates the strengths of California- clean, neutral fermentation, versatile usage, and adds two other strains that belong to the same 'clean/neutral' flavor category. The additional strains create complexity to the finished beer. This blend tastes more lager like than WLP001. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated, but not to the extreme of California. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation.
