Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 9 lbs Pilsen Malt; Malteries Franco-Belges

    Pilsen Malt; Malteries Franco-Belges

    Light in color and low in total protein, MFB Pilsen malt is produced from the finest European two-row barley. This malt is extremely well modified and can easily be mashed with a single-temperature infusion.

  • .15 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

  • .75 lbs Corn Sugar

    Corn Sugar

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

  • 1 oz Fuggle - 4.8 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min


    Mild. Mainly used for finishing and dry hopping especially pale ales, porters, and stouts. Aroma is mild and pleasant, spicy, and soft.

  • 1 oz Czech Saaz - 2.8 AA% pellets; boiled 20 min

    Czech Saaz

    Very mild. '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.
