I plan on using dry yeast as well.
Any recipes would be much appreciated. Thanks.
As an extract brewer I would use a ex light DME for the malt. Steep 1 1/4 lbs of Dark crystal malt in 150 deg water for 30 mins. I would also use the 1056 Chico ale liquid yeast for the clone that's the same yeast used for Sierra. Use a fresh activator pouch or make a starter.
For a 5.5 gal pri batch
8 1/2 lbs ex-light DME
1 1/4 lbs dark crystal
25 HBU Chinook for 60 mins
22 HBU cascade for 15 mins
I'll need to check the HBU's from my recipe at home
The HBU's are calculated for a 3 1/2 to 4 gal partial boil
Dry Hop 1oz cascade after primary settles for 2 weeks
