8# American 2 row
2# Caramel Crystal 60L
1# Midnight Wheat Malt

.5oz Northern Brewer @60min
1oz Northern Brewer @30min

1tsp Irish moss @10min

Dough in 14qt @ 134deg for protien rest at 120deg for 25min. Bring to 150deg for 70 min mash. Sparge with 8qt @ 170deg. boil for 70 min. Pitch yeast at 70deg ferment primary for 10 days (the yeast works slow so verify final gravity is close to 1.016).

Similiar to New Belgium's 1554 with more of a toasted character. Very good. Will try a batch with a half pound of midnight wheat to get it closer to 1554.
