  • 1 pack of American ale yeast

Brewing Process:

Step 1: Preparing the Mash

Start by heating the water up to 170°F. Using a grain bag, add the pale ale malt, Vienna malt, caramel malt, and roasted barley. Allow them to steep for about an hour. The temperature should stay consistent throughout the hour, at around 155°F.

Step 2: Sparge

Step 3: Boiling

Boil your wort for 60 minutes, adding your hops according to the following schedule:

  • 15 minutes – 10 grams of Columbus hops
  • 45 minutes – 10 grams of Centennial hops
  • 55 minutes – 5 grams of Willamette hops
  • 60 minutes – 10 grams of Columbus hops

Step 4: Fermentation

Add the wort to your fermenter, and once cooled to the 74-78°F range, sprinkle your yeast on top. Ferment the mixture for 10 days, releasing CO2 after two-three days. After fermentation is complete, transfer the mixture to a secondary fermenter for five days.

Step 5: Carbonation

Mix the corn sugar with a cup of boiling water, and add it to the mixture when you have transferred it to the fermenter. Bottle the beer and leave it to carbonate for at least ten days.
