Note these are whole hops (5%), reduce if you use pellets. Mash 148F 10 min, raise to 152-4F for 45, raise to 170, lauter.

I actually brew this to an cast out OG of 16.3P and dilute to 13.2P. If you brew a regular version, then go low or skip the Munich malt. I dont list pounds of malt, since this will vary with each brewers system.
