Total Mash Volume Gal: 1.32 - Dough-In Infusion Only

All temperature measurements are degrees Fahrenheit.

Notes:

After steeping or mashing grains bring wort to a boil add DME ONLY, bring to a boil again then add hops.

At last 10 minutes add LME mix well add chiller. You can add Irish Moss now, however I didn't use any.

I fermented this at 62F for three weeks racked to a 2ndary held at 62F for three weeks. Then kegged.

Chill at 40F for about 3 weeks, then add gas @ 10PSI for 2-3 weeks.

It tastes like a lager without having to do the actual lagering. Well, post fermentation.

A good long wait on the yeast, primary & secondary followed by a nice long chill while carbing is almost as good IMO.

Color is dark because of the lighting.
