Double Ale


3 1/2 lbs Amber Malt Extract
8 oz Crystal Malt Grain
4 oz Pale Malt Grain
4 oz Oat Grain (I used Old Fashioned Oats)
1 oz Cascade Hops
1 oz Fuggle Hops
1/2 Teaspoon Irish Moss
1 packet Muntons Ale Yeast
3/8 cup Corn Sugar (priming)

Date Brewed: March 21, 2001

Original Gravity: 1!.049


1!. Steep Grains for 1/2 hour
2!. Strain grains and add to brew pot along with 1 gallon water
3!. Add Malt Extract and allow to boil
4!. When wort begins to boil, add 1/2 of the Hops and boil for 1 hour
5!. After 1 hour, remove hops and add the other 1/2 of hops, boil for 1/2 hour
6!. Last 15 minutes of boil, add Irish Moss
7!. After chilling, pour into primary fermenter and add water to the 3 gallon mark
8!. Pitch yeast

Will make about 2!.5 gallons bottled or about a case of 12 oz bottles!. also, I like to pitch the yeast around "blood temperature" or 98 degrees!. Last couple of years, I have been doing an open fermentation for the first 12 hours!. I use a large grain bag tied over the top!. I also do a dry hopping by adding additional hops at this stageWww@FoodAQ@Com

Here is where I go sometimes for recipies!.

I don't know if you are planning on brewing all grain, partial mash or extract!. This site has all types of recipies!.!.!.!.by the way brewing is easy!.!.!.I encourage you to go all grain!.

If you have never brewed beer, a lot of home brew shops have kits that help you get started!. If you can make coffee or tea, you can make beer!. The waiting is the hardest part!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Your best bet is to get a copy of Papazian's book The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing!. Read the first 42 pages, then pick an all-extract recipe!. Write down what you need!. Then go to http://byo!.com and click on Reader Resources!. That will give you links to catalogs!. also, find a local home brew shop if you can!. For small orders, their prices are competitive with mail order and you get free advice thrown in!.

No tricks!. Just remember to sanitize everything!. You might also want to look into craigslist,org's forum 1855, another good source of advice, both from me and from people who actually know something!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
