Beer Style: California Common Beer (7B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

California Common Beer

Description:

Judges said it was perhaps a tad thin compared to Anchor but otherwise OK and it took 2nd out of 30 amber beers at the Hudson Valley competition last March. With MeV kaput, I recommend using a sturdy lager yeast or even an ale yeast for this one.

Ingredients:

  • 5 pounds, Klages lager malt
  • 4 pounds, Pale Ale malt
  • 1 pounds, crystal malt (40 or 60 deg Lovibond)
  • 1/2 teaspoon, Irish moss
  • 1-1/2 ounces, Northern Brewer (alpha 8.0)
  • 1-1/2 ounces, Hallertauer (alpha 4.1)
  • MeV High Temp Lager liquid yeast
