5 tsp sarsaparilla!

Optimum Temp: 59 - 75 F
Pitch Rate: 0.5 (M cells / ml / deg P)

Mash all grains at 150˚F. Sparge with 168˚F. The IBU listed is higher than it actually is. 2.5 ounces first wort or 60 min boil. If you add the sarsaparilla, do it now (60 min. boil). 2.5 oz. hops added continuously starting at 30 min and ending at flame out.
Bottle with 2.4 volumes CO2.

Tastes mighty fine. My first all grain batch. The sarsaparilla is an unusual addition. This is a very small amount: just enough that it's a note in the aroma--you wouldn't guess what it was if you didn't know, but it adds something very nice to it.
