Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 12 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.

  • 2 oz Saaz - 2.5 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min


    Used for finishing pilseners, continental lagers, and wheats. The aroma is spicy and pleasant with fragrant overtones.

  • 1 oz Irish Moss - (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.

  • BrewTek CL-380 Saison

    BrewTek CL-380 Saison

    This yeast leaves a smooth, full character in the malt, with mild yet pleasant esters and flavors reminiscent of apple pie spices. Best used to recreate country French and Belgian Ales as well as Grand Cru styles.
