So for our first beer, my brother and I took a recipe for an Alaskan Amber Clone and modified it. Here’s our best guess as to our modifications, since we unfortunately lost our original recipe:
|7 Lb.||Gold Malt Extract|
|1 Lb.||Briess Crystal 60L|
|1/2 Lb.||Winter Wheat Berry|
|1/2 Lb.||Rolled Oats|
|1/2 Lb.||Flaked Rye|
|1/2 Lb.||Flaked Barley|
|1 oz||Cascade Hops|
|1 oz||Kent Golding Hops|
|1 tsp||Irish Moss|
|3/4 cup||Priming Sugar|
|1 package||Yeast (some kind)|
We activated the yeast Packet. Heated water to 160F. Turned the heat off, added grains (in nylon mesh bag). Steeped for 1 hour. Removed Grains and rinsed them. Added malt extract and stirred it in. Brought it to a boil.
Beginning of Boil Added 1/2 oz Cascade Hops
After 20 minutes Added 1/4 oz Kent Golding and 1/4oz Cascade
After 40 minutes Added 1/2 oz Kent Golding
After 58 minutes Added 1/4 oz Kent Golding and Irish Moss
Turned off heat and poured into primary bucket with 8 lbs of ice. Cooled to below 80F, added yeast.
On about 12/23/08 we racked the beer to secondary (carboy).
On about 1/1/09 it was time to bottle. We mixed the priming sugar with warm water, poured into secondary, mixed it all up and then bottled. We got about 44 bottles out of this batch, owing to a lot of sediment in the primary.
