Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 10.5 lbs Cargill Euro Pils; Cargill Malt

    Cargill Euro Pils; Cargill Malt

    Fashioned after the great Pilsner malts of Europe, Cargill Euro Pils is malted in our Canadian malting facility using the finest Canadian two-row barley. This malt exhibits the distinct "grassiness" often associated with European Pilsner malts.

  • .2 lbs Acidulated Malt; Weyermann®

    Acidulated Malt; Weyermann®

    German-grown two-row spring barley (2004 harvest). Product Characteristics: Lowers mash, wort, and beer pH. Contains 1−2% lactic acid. Slightly smoky. Enhances enzymatic activity in mash and improves extract efficiency. Lightens color in pale brews. Enhances stability and extends shelf life of finished beer. Promotes well-rounded, complex beer flavor. Recommended Quantities: Up to 10% of total grain bill. Each 1% lowers mash pH by 0.1. Suitability (beer styles): Any ale or lager, especially Pils/Pilsner/Pilsener, low-alcohol beers, wheat beers

  • 1.25 lbs Corn Sugar

    Corn Sugar

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

  • 1 oz Mt. Hood - 5.6 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min

    Mt. Hood

    Used mainly for aroma and flavor in American and German style ales and lagers. Aroma is mild, pleasant, light, and clean.

  • .5 oz Tettnanger - 3.7 AA% pellets; boiled 30 min


    Mild, slightly spicy. 'Noble'.

  • .5 oz Tettnanger - 3.7 AA% pellets; boiled 15 min


    Mild, slightly spicy. 'Noble'.

  • Imperial Yeast B45 Gnome

    Imperial Yeast B45 Gnome

    Gnome is the yeast for brewing Belgian inspired beers in a hurry. This strain is extremely flocculent and drops out of the beer quickly after fermentation. Gnome produces a nice phenolic character that goes well with hops, as well as with caramel and toffee flavors. Great for Belgian ales that need to be crystal clear without filtration.
