Yield: 54 Servings
|1 can||Alexanders Sun Country pale|
|\N \N||Malt extract|
|3⅓ pounds||Northwestern Amber malt|
|½ pounds||Dark crystal malt|
|3 ounces||CFJ-90 Fresh hops|
|¼ teaspoon||Irish moss|
|\N \N||Ale yeast|
Put all grains in brewpot with cool water. Remove when boil commences.
Add malt extract and 1-½ ounce of hops. Boil 1 hour. Strain out boil- ing hops and add ½ ounce more hops and Irish moss. Boil 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add another ½ ounce of hops. Steep 10 minutes and cool. Strain wort into primary fermenter with cold water to make 5 gallons. Add final ½ ounce of hops. Water was filtered with a simple activated carbon system. This seems to make a big difference. Amateur judge commented, "Beautiful color. A bit under carbonated. Great hop nose and finishes very clean. Good balance with malt and hops, but lighten up on finishing hops a bit and it's perfect. Very marketable." Recipe By : Andy Wilcox
