----------------------------
Add 2 gallons of water to boil pot. Steep grains for 30 mins at 154.
When done steeping, add an additional 1/2 gallon of water and bring to a boil.
Take pot off the flame, Add your extract and mix it well.
Put it back on the fire bring it to a boil, once the hot break occurs start the timer and do your hop additions.
After 1 hour boil, put pot in icebath and add 1 gallon of bottled water until wort reaches aprox 90 degrees. Add additional
1.5 Gallons of Bottled water to Fermenter and add your wort. At this time, Aeriate the wort by rocking fermenter side to side for about 5 minutes.
Once the wort reaches 78 degrees, pitch yeast. I pitch the yeast
dry as recommended by packaging, but you can also rehydrate yeast and pitch.
Ferment in primary for 1 week, and secondary for 2 week. Bottle condition 2 weeks.
-Cheers

This originally was intended to be my attempt at a Sam Adams Boston, which is a lager. It does not taste like Sam Adams at all, but turned out to be one tasty brew I will be making again. Enjoy!
