Yield: 54 Servings

Measure Ingredient
7 pounds John Bull plain light malt
\N \N Extract
½ pounds Crystal malt
2 ounces Northern Brewer hops (11
\N \N Alpha) (boil)
1 ounce Cascade hops (5.6 alpha)
\N \N (finish)
2 \N Packs
\N \N Lager yeast

Pour 1 gallon water into brewpot. Crush grains and add to brewpot.

Bring to boil. Remove grains. Add malt extract. Add ⅓ of the boiling hops. After 20 minutes, add another ⅓ of hops. After another 20 min- utes add the last ⅓ of hops. After another 20 minutes, remove from heat and add finishing hops. Cover wort. Pour 3 gallons cold water into fermenter. Strain wort into fermenter along with enough water to make 5-½ gallons. Pitch yeast and put in blowoff tube or airlock. This recipe was offered in 1986 by the now-defunct Home Brewer shop in San Jose, California, as the best approximation to Anchor Steam possible with home-brew-scale extract brewing.
