Beer Style: Standard American Lager  (1B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Standard American Lager


I made this up last weekend and it seemed to turn out pretty well, so I thought I'd share. The name, BTW, is shamelessly ripped of from Ray Stevens, a really funny comedian-singer.

This recipe was originally "Australian Spring Snow Golden Lager" a la Papazian, but when I got to the supply store, I found that I needed to come up with a variant recipe or try something else. I tasted some when bottling, and it turned out pretty good. I'll let you know how it does in the bottle...


  • 3.3 lbs Australian lager malt extract (hopped)
  • 3.3 lbs Australian plain light malt extract (unhopped)
  • 1 oz. Fuggles hops (boiling)
  • 0.5 oz Cascade hops (boiling)
  • 0.5 oz Cascade hops (finishing)
  • 1pkg. Superbrau yeast
  • 3/4cup Corn Sugar for bottling
