The properties of the malt: low protein levels, high extract content, light colour and high enzymatic activity.

  • .25 lbs Crystal 40; Great Western

    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.

  • 11 lbs Corn Sugar

    Corn Sugar

    Use in priming beer or in extract recipes where flaked maize would be used in a mash.

  • 4 oz Nugget - 13.0 AA% whole; boiled 60 min


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

  • 6 oz Citra™ - 12.0 AA% whole; boiled 15 min


    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.

  • 4 oz Simcoe® - 13.0 AA% whole; boiled 1 min


    Used for aromatic, and especially bittering properties.

  • 2 ea Whirlfloc Tablets (Irish moss) - (omitted from calculations)

    Whirlfloc Tablets (Irish moss)

    Enhanced Irish Moss in convenient tablet form

  • .5 tsp Wyeast Nutrient - (omitted from calculations)

    Wyeast Nutrient

    Although wort is a good growth medium for yeast, additional Wyeast Nutrient will reduce lag time, improve yeast viability and provide consistent attenuation rates. Low assimilable nitrogen concentrations (FAN) of grape must or wort have long been known as a cause of sluggish or stuck fermentations. Wyeast yeast nutrient, a blend of vitamin B's, minerals, inorganic nitrogen (DAP), organic nitrogen (amino acids), zinc, phosphates and other trace elements will benefit yeast growth and carbohydrate uptake for a more rapid, complete fermentation. Use 1/4 tsp per pint for beer propagation, 1 tsp per 5 gallons for wine or beer fermentation or 1.5 oz per 10 barrels for beer fermentation.

  • White Labs WLP715 Champagne

    White Labs WLP715 Champagne

    Classic yeast, used to produce champagne, cider, dry meads, dry wines, or to fully attenuate barley wines/ strong ales. Can tolerate alcohol concentrations up to 17%. Neutral.

However, the connection between the copper and vinyl hose was spraying water into my wort!!! At least 1-2 gals of water was added to my beer, and my hope of course is that it is not contaminated. I considered reboiling for 15 mins, but had already added all of my fresh wet hops and did not want to waste their unique flavor and oils. OG 1.052 OG with Sugar: 1.113
