Beer Style: Standard American Lager
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
(This brewer had some problems with this batch, but it's likely related to technique...the recipe looks sound. --Ed.)
On commencing of boil, I added the Extracts and let boil for 15 minutes.
I added the Willamette and let boil for another 15 minutes.
I added the Malto Dextrin and let boil for 20 minutes.
I added the Irish Moss and let boil for 5 minutes.
I added the Cascade and let boil for the final 5 minutes.
I transferred the wort to my 5 gallon bucket and let sit overnight. I transferred the wort from the 5 gallon bucket to my 7 gallon bucket, and aerated for 30 minutes using an aquarium pump (all equipment sanitized in bleach). I let the head settle down, pitched the yeast and let sit at room temperature. Once the yeast started showing signs of activity I moved the bucket to my garage which was at a temperature of 54 degrees (f). After fermenting in the primary 1 week I transferred it to the secondary.
