A step infusion mash is employed to mash the grains. Add 11 quarts (10.5 L) of 60C water to the crushed grain, stir, stabilize and hold the temperature at 53C for 30 minutes. Add 5.5 quarts (5.2 L) of boiling water and add heat to bring temperature up to 68C and hold for about 30 minutes. Raise temperature to 75C, lauter and sparge with 3.5 gallons (13.5 L) of 77C water. Collect about 6 gallons (23 L) of runoff. Add 60-minute hops and bring to a full and vigorous boil. The total boil time will be 60 minutes. When 20 minutes remain, add the German Hallertauer hops. When 10 minutes remain, add the Irish moss. When 1 minute remains, add both the Saaz and Mt. Hood hops. After a total wort boil of 60 minutes, turn off the heat and place the pot (with cover on) in a running cold water bath for 30 minutes. Continue to chill in the immersion or use other methods to chill your wort. Strain and sparge the wort into a sanitized fermenter. Bring the total volume to 5.5 gallons (21 L) with additional cold water if necessary. Aerate the wort very well. Pitch the yeast when temperature of wort is about 11C. Once visible signs of fermentation are evident, ferment at temperatures of about 12.5C for about one week or when fermentation shows signs of calm and stopping. Rack from your primary to a secondary and add the hop pellets for dry hopping. If you have the capability, “lager” the beer at temperatures between 1.5-7C for 3-6 weeks. Prime with sugar and bottle or keg when complete.
