Default Extract Recipe with No Yeast??

Hi everyone! First post here.

I got a Mr. Beer for xmas but have already moved past using the Mr. Beer kits.

I've found this recipe that sounds pretty good:


Ingredients:
0.5 lbs amber crystal, steep until boil
6 lbs. English light malt extract: boil 60 min.
1 oz. Galena (11% a.a.): boil 60 min
1 oz. Willamette whole leaf hops (4% a.a.): boil 10 min.
1 oz. Willamette: put in nylon hop bag and pour the hot wort over it in
Procedure:
You can carry the hop bag over into the secondary if you rack. This English brewers is so fast it really finishes before you need a secondary. If you do rack, or when you bottle, the hop nose will hit you like a baseball bat. Oh, its good.


I bought the necessary ingredients from Brew and Grow (5 minutes from my house ):
Malt extract
Crystal
Galena
Willamette

But I noticed that the recipe doesn't call for any yeast!? Does this seem normal?

Also, it doesn't have very good directions such as how much water, when to add the ingredients etc. I've found several websites for extract brewing instructions but they are not specific to this recipe of course.

How would you brew this beer?


Keep in mind all I have is the Mr. Beer equipment so I am going to do a half recipe (2.5 gallons).

Thank you for all your help and this site rules!

I think they didn't tell you about the yeast since it's just understood that you would use yeast and you can choose your own strain.

The recipe is "meh" (adding the hops in a bag and pouring hot wort over it? Don't do that!) but we can help you with step by step directions when you're ready.

Fair enough.

How does this yeast sound? http://www.brewandgrow.com/brew/ingr...-xl-yeast.html

I will be picking up the yeast today and most likely brewing it tonight.

So far I brewed the West Coast Pale Ale that came with the Mr. Beer (which, surprisingly, wasn't too bad) and am currently conditioning Munton's Old Ale (I used the recipe on the can not one to the alternatives that come on a paper inside the can).

Any advice would be awesome!

That's a good yeast strain. Use the whole package in a 2.5 gallon batch.

Ok, here are my instructions! Steep the grains in a bag at 150-160 degrees for 20 minutes. Do NOT bring this to a boil! Just heat up the boil volume in your pot to about 165 and add the grains in the bag, and turn off the heat. Dunk it, "teabagging" it, until all the grains are wetted and make sure it's under 160 degrees by checking with a thermometer. Then let that steep for 20 minutes. Remove the grains, and bring the resulting liquor (that's what it's called) up to a boil. Take the pot off of the heat and add the extract. Bring to a boil again, and add the first hops. Set a timer for 60 minutes and then add the second hops with 10 minutes left in the boil. When the timer gets to 0, add the last hops. Turn off the heat and begin chilling the wort. Once chilled, pour the wort into the sanitized fermenter.

You don't need to use hops bags, but if you want to you can. Don't transfer the hops bags into the fermenter though!

I will definitely follow your direction! I didn't make it to brew and grow today so I'll have to do it tomorrow.

Thanks again!

what is the purpose of pouring the wort over the hops in a nylon bag? Ghetto hopback lol?

No clue. It's very weird, and then the instructions say you can transfer that bag of spent hops to the secondary besides! Very odd, and I've never seen anything like it.

Thanks again for the recipe.

I do have 3 questions though.

1) Why add hops at the end of the boil? Why not just add all the Willamette at the 10 minute mark?

2) Should I do a secondary with this? If so when? 7-10 days?

3) When it is time to bottle, will I need to add sugar for carbonation?

Thanks!
