    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.

    East Kent Goldings

    Mild, slightly flowery.

  • 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.


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!

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!
