    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 Candi Sugar Amber

    Candi Sugar Amber

    Smooth taste, good head retention, sweet aroma and high gravity without being apparent. Use in Belgian and holiday ales. Use clear for tripels, amber for dubbels, and dark is used in brown beer and strong golden ales.

  • .5 oz Magnum - 14.5 AA% pellets; boiled 45 min


    A West Coast hop with high Alpha Acid. Excellent bittering hop.

  • 6 oz Raisins - added last 10mins of boil (omitted from calculations)


    Dried grapes. Has a sweet prune like flavor. California discovered the commercial potential of raisins quite by accident. In 1873, a freak hot spell withered the grapes on the vine. One enterprising San Francisco grocer advertised these shriveled grapes as "Peruvian Delicacies" and the rest is history. California is now the world's leading producer of raisins.

  • White Labs WLP530 Abbey Ale

12oz of Coconut Palm sugar and 12oz Demerara sugar added to primary inverted into syrup. Along with the raisins added 7oz.dried figs to the boil.
