Beer Style: California Common Beer  (7B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

California Common Beer


I've made many variations of steam beer, but simple ones like this seem to turn out best, not to mention being easy to make. I usually use more Northern Brewer than this, but then nobody will eat my chili either.


  • 6 pounds, light dry malt extract
  • 1/2 pound, toasted malt
  • 3/4 ounce, Northern Brewer hops pellets (boil)
  • 1/4 ounce, Northern Brewer hops pellets (finish)
  • 1 pack, lager yeast

Toast grains on cookie sheet in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Crush malt as you would grain. Put in 1-1/2 gallons water and bring to boil. Strain out grain. Add extract and boiling hops. In last 2 minutes of boil add finishing hops. Add to enough water to make 5 gallons and pitch yeast.
