Default Californication- This weeks special priced recipe.

http://www.apexbrewwares.com/Weekly-...ia-Common.html

Want to make a lager but dont have the ability to? Yeah me too! So I am introducing Californication! A very skilled brewer in Denver made this recipe and I loved it since the first time I made it! He was kind enough to share it with me so I am passing it on to you. Using two row, Munich, and Carapils and then Northern Brewer and Cascade hops it is a wonderful blend that is easy on the palate.

Both recipes use White Labs WLP810 San Francisco Lager yeast which can be fermented anywhere from 55-68 degrees! Most people can obtain that year round using a tub of water and a t-shirt as a swamp cooler. See this link for a simple to make and use swamp cooler.

Available in an all grain or extract version, both come in right under 5% ABV.

Extract version is made with DME and steeping grains. Steeping grains are packed in a muslin grain bag perfect for steeping. 5.5 gallon recipe.

All grain recipe is based on a 5.5 gallon recipe at 70% efficiency.

Both recipes come with detailed instructions which may or may not need adjusting to you own brewing style. Try this and I think you will love it!


Due to the amount of yeast on hand, this is a limited availability recipe. When they are gone, they are gone until we restock our yeast supply.

How does it come out in terms of esters?

Honestly in my opinion it has very little if no esters. If you have ever tried a california steam beer, such as Anchor, it is going to be very similar in the terms of esters. As you can imagine the lower end of the temp scale will produce a cleaner, less ester-y beer, but again, in my opinion, you wont get any esters if fermented 4-5 weeks in the low 60s or high 50s.
