Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 12.5 lbs American 2-row

    American 2-row

    Yields a slightly higher extract than Six Rox brewers Malt. Tends to give a smoother, less grainy flavored beer. Some brewers claim they can detect a significant difference in flavor. Lower protein and will yield a lower color than Six-Row Brewers Malt

  • 1 lbs White Table Sugar (Sucrose)

    White Table Sugar (Sucrose)

    Common household table/baking sugar. Lightens flavor and body of beer. Can contribute a cider-like flavor to the beer if not cold-fermented or used in large quantities.

  • 1 oz Northern Brewer - 9.1 AA% whole; boiled 90 min

    Northern Brewer

    Used for bittering with strong flavors and very fragrant in steam beers, dark English ales, and German lagers. Aroma is medium-strong with evergreen and mint overtones.

  • .55 oz Czech Saaz - 2.4 AA% whole; boiled 90 min

    Czech Saaz

    Very mild. 'Noble'.

  • Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager™

Saaz shines through

maltiness left behind from the Munich yeast balances well with the smooth spicy essence from the saaz. One beer and you are feeling happy. Just the way I like it.
