Beer number 17

Yield: 54 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3⅓ pounds Plain light malt extract
2¼ pounds Maltose
¾ ounce Cascade hops (boil)
¾ ounce Cascade hops (finish)
\N \N Cultured Sierra Nevada
\N \N Yeast

The maltose is a cheap rice-malt mix obtainable from oriental markets.

Boil malt, hops, and maltose in 2-½ gallons of cold water. In last 2 minutes, add the finishing hops. The yeast was cultured from a bottle of Sierra Nevada pale ale. By the next day, the yeast did not seem to start, so I added a packet of Vierrka lager yeast. Rack to secondary after one week. After another week, prime with ¾ cup corn sugar and bottle. Color similar to any American lager. Tastes much better, very mellow. The goal was to brew 5 gallons of beer while only spending $10. This came to about $11. I'm not sure what drives me to such frugalness, but having grown up with American beer, sometimes I would rather have it with certain foods, like pizza. Original Gravity: 1.038 Final Gravity: 1.006 Primary Ferment: 1 week Secondary Ferment: 1 week
