1 can Cooper's OS Draught
3lbs Munton's plain light DME
2oz Columbus hops
2oz Nugget hops
2oz Cascade hops.
1) 7g packet cooper's ale yeast
1.5 cups boiled water with 1/4C light DME cooled to pitch temp <OR>
2C boiled water with 1tsp dextrose
I boiled 3 gallons of water,got 2.5G when it boiled. Added 1.5lbs plain light DME to BK & stirred til dissolved. Measured out 1.5oz each of the hops,& put them in hop sacks tied off. Got a mini hot break for about 3 mins. 1st hop addition of Columbus @ 25mins. 2nd of Nugget 16.5 mins. 3rd of Cascade at 8 mins,30 seconds. *(forgot this part,sorry)*At flame out,stir in remaining DME & the Cooper's can. Place lid on kettle to steep 5 mins,as the wort is still boiling hot,& pasteurization happens @ 160F.
Then into sink with cold water in empty space for a couple mins. Drain water,re-plug,& fill up with ice,then top that off with cold water. Place floating thermometer in BK till temp is down to 65-70F,about 20 mins.
Dump yeast in re-hydrating solution & cover with plastic wrap. Sanitize fermenter with starsan,then dump sanitizer into your holding vessel. Place fine mesh strainer over open FV,pouring chilled wort through it into FV. Pour top off water through it too. It'll aerate it well too. Stir for 5 minutes solid,very roughly. Take hydrometer reading,make note of it & stir/pitch re-hydrated yeast. Seal fermenter & place airlock in lid,filled to the line with cheap vodka.
25 days to ferment,including one week dry hop with the remaining .5oz of each hop in a sack. Primed with 5.15oz dextrose to get 2.3 volumes co2 in bottles. Condition bottles for 30 days,2 weeks in fridge to get thicker head & longer lasting carbonation. Here's a pic for the curious; http://http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/ss71/unionrdr/IPA3.jpg
