An all grain recipe using specialty grains and a longer aggressive boil to caramelize the wort. I was going for a 60 Shilling brew but the results were closer to a 70 Shilling. I have already brewed this recipe and initial results are great aroma and nice taste. I will update later once completed and carbonated.

Special Instructions

  1. This is based on my tun and boil evaporations, adjust to your own environment.
  2. Heat 2 to 2.5 gallon of water to 177 degree. I like to start with a lower volume of water in case I need to add more to raise the mashing temperature. Mash for 60 minutes
  3. While mashing heat 6 gallon of water to 180 degree.
  4. Sparge grains and drain until you have 8 gallon of wort. Boil aggressively for 90 minutes. The goal is to reach 5 gallons.
  5. Add hops at the last 60 minutes of the boil.
  6. Add Irish Moss or Whirlfloc tab at the last 15 minutes.
  7. Ferment at 60F temperature with an ale yeast or you can use a lager yeast. I decide to ferment with a lager yeast at 50F since I have a temperature controlled fermenting chamber. I always use dry yeast these days and have good results.
  8. Allow 3 or 4 weeks to ferment when using a lager yeast at low temps. Clarify once completed.

Notes:

Well not my favorite beer, it looks and tastes okay much like it should but it is light, seems thin such as bud or miller. I prefer the heavier craft beers, but for my bud light drinkers this will probably satisfy them just right.
