Ingredients (All Grain5.5 gal)

  • 8.5 lbs Maris Otter Malt; Bairds Malt

    Maris Otter Malt; Bairds Malt

    Maris Otter is a British barley malt variety known for producing beers with a full malty flavor.

  • 1.5 lbs Munich Malt Type 1 (Organic); Weyermann

    Munich Malt Type 1 (Organic); Weyermann

    Organic Munich Malt Type 1 is produced from German grown two-row Spring barley from certified organic cultivation. Based on its strong flavor and the characteristic color, this malt is mainly used for producing dark beers. All Weyermann Specialty Malts are produced according to the strict “German Purity Law“. Weyermann does not use any genetically manipulated materials.

  • .5 lbs Caramalt 15; Bairds Malt

    Caramalt 15; Bairds Malt

    Caramalts are used to give colour and flavour to pale Lager beers but should be used with care to avoid making the beer too dark or giving it too cloying a flavour. They also change the oxidation - reduction state of a beer, and can therefore improve the stability of a beer by preventing the formation of oxidised (cardboard) flavours.

  • .5 lbs Caramel Malt 40L; Briess

    Caramel Malt 40L; Briess

    Sweet, caramel, toffee flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam, foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • Caramel Malt 40L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden to light red color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 1.5 oz Galena - 13.0 AA% whole; 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.

  • 1.5 oz Centennial - 10.0 AA% whole; boiled 20 min

    Centennial

    Aromatic but acceptable for bittering. Medium aroma with floral and citrus tones. Good in medium to dark ales.

  • 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.
