American Wheat or Rye Beer


I thought that the final gravity of this beer was a bit high, but the beer came out tasting great and no bottles exploded. In order to call this a porter it needs more hops, therefore I think it is a Scotch ale.

  • 1 pound, caramel crystal malt
  • 1-1/2 ounces, Willamette hops
  • 1-1/2 ounces, Fuggles hops
  • 1 pack, Wyeast #1098: British Ale
  • 3/4 cup, corn sugar (priming)
