Ingredients (All Grain18.93 L)

  • 3 kg Pilsen 2RS Malt; Castle Malting

    Pilsen 2RS Malt; Castle Malting

    Features: The lightest coloured Belgian malt. Produced from the finest European two-row spring barley varieties: Henley, Tipple, Sebastian, Prestige, Thorgall. Kilned at up to 80- 85°C. Usage: All beer types. Can be used up to 100% or as part of the mixture. Characteristics: The lightest in colour and low in protein, this malt is well modified and can be easily mashed with a single-temperature infusion. Our Pilsen malt carries a strong, sweet malt flavour and contains enough enzymatic power to be used as base malt.

  • 1 kg Wheat Malt; Castle Malting

    Wheat Malt; Castle Malting

    Features: Belgian wheat malt. Kilned at up to 80- 85°C. Usage: Wheat beers, white, light beers, beers with low or no alcohol. Recommended proportion: 40%. Characteristics: Enhances the peculiar taste of wheat beers. Wheat malt is essential in making wheat beers, but is also used in malt-based beers (3–5%) thanks to its protein that gives the beer a fuller mouth feel and enhanced beer head stability.

  • 15 g 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.

  • 10 g Styrian Goldings - 6.0 AA% pellets; boiled 15 min

    Styrian Goldings

  • Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    The most famous ale yeast strain found across America, now available as a ready-to-pitch dry yeast. Produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Sedimentation: low to medium. Final gravity: medium. Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C± 3C(80F ±6F). Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C(68F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.
