EXPERIMENTAL RECIPE MOD! Brew at your own risk...

Yoop, I'm hoping you can take a look at this and tell me if I'm on the right track. I was very happy with the recipe for extract you listed here (and I did add a half pound of Victory malt in the steep per recommendations), but mine came out a bit sweeter than I had planned (I was a couple of points above your OG, but one point below your FG).

I made a few mods to the recipe based on my tastes. I'm hoping to dry it out a bit, and bring some more of that excellent Northern Brewer hops character to the front of the stage. Here's the recipe as I'd like to try it. See what you think. Is the sugar idea too much (should I just drop the amount of DME instead)? This would be the first time I've brewed using table shugga...

Thanks!

Oops - sorry, all. The ZIP file has a BeerXML file and a PDF of the recipe.

Just an update, the beer turned out great!

I altered the recipe a bit and this is a must repeat.

Recipe:
1lb 2 Row
6.5 lbs light LME
.5lb caramel/crystal 60L
2oz. Northern Brewer
White Labs WLP810

Steeped the crushed grain at 155 for 45min.

Hops addition:
1oz at 60min
.5oz at 30min w/whirlfloc
.5oz at 5min

First time utilizing my recirculating wort chiller build and couldn't have worked out any better! Brought my boil down below 70 in 15minutes no problem.

I pitched room temp lager yeast- no starter.

I utilized a primary only ferment for 3 weeks at a San Francisco basement temp of 64degrees before transferring to bottling bucket.

The MOST interesting thing about this brew was the bottle conditioning. Seriously it is amazing how much of a difference a few weeks make. The flavor was extremely green, as expected, on bottling day. However, trying the beer one week in the brew had a really really bad case of rhino farts. The taste was markedly better, still not there, but I was disappointed with the smell.

Fast forward to two weeks of bottle conditioning around 68-70 degrees and agitating sediment 1-2x a week. Smell is GONE and I couldn't be any happier. The taste was clean, crisp with that really familiar Steam beer backing ( I drink Anchor, in all variants, year round). Served to family/friends over Christmas dinner and everyone loved it.


Cheers!

Brewed all grain version today and it went well. I inadvertently mashed high at 158F and overshot the OG a bit at 1.054, but smells great and I'm looking forward to it being ready.

I'm brewing this one to celebrate finalizing the adoption of my 5 year old daughter in March. She was my official assistant brewer today and I have dubbed it "Punky Steam BREWster".

My wife and I really enjoy Anchor Steam and I'm excited to see how my first steam beer turns out to taste how it compares.

Racked to secondary today on day 14 and moved to garage to lager in the 40s. Can't wait to see how this turns out. My first quasi lager attempt.
