Beer Style: California Common Beer (7B)
Recipe Type: all-grain

A couple days ago, someone asked for a recipe to clone Anchor Steam. This one came quite close, IMHO. The variety of base malts I used exists because I was trying to finish up some nearly empty bags, other- wise I would probably used all american 2-row, w/o the pilen or pale ale.

Slow (25 min) rise w/ steam injection to 155F
155F 40 min
Sparge w/ 7 gallons 170F.

Ferment at 62F with Wyeast Calif. Common Lager yeast 1 week primary, 2 weeks secondary, keg.
