Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: Nottingham   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 10.54   
Final Gravity: 1.013   
IBU: 40   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 13   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 @ 69F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): N/A   
Tasting Notes: Nice malt flavor balanced with citrus Cascade   

Boil size - 3 gallons (topped off to 5.5 gallons in fermenter with clean water)

4 lb Briess Light DME
3 lbs Two-row Pale
1 lb Crystal 60L
6 oz Crystal 90L

.75 oz Cascade (5.5 AAs) - 60 Minutes
1 oz Cascade - 20 minutes
2 oz Cascade - 5 minutes

Whirlfloc Tab - 15 minutes

Grains mashed for 45 minutes @ 153 F - Sparged with 170 F

Bring to boil
Remove from heat an add DME
Bring to boil, start timer, add hops and Whirlfloc at stated times.

Cool to 70 F w/ wort chiller or ice bath.

Strain into fermenter, aerate, pitch yeast.

Ferment 2-3 weeks at 69 F and bottle with 4 oz corn sugar.

This is a very simple brew but tastes great - I've gotten lots of compliments on this one. It's a pretty straightforward "American Amber" and is a good showcase for the Cascade hops.

BTW, SafAle S-05 works fine in lieu of Notty if you're not a fan.

Since there's no dry hopping, this one is relatively quick as well!

(for extract version lose the two row and add another pound of DME, steep crystal grains at 160 F for 30 minutes)

Cheers!

OOPS! Could a mod be so kind to move the decimal point in my OG? Once posted, users can't edit the specs.

Sorry, neither can we mods! We can edit the post, but not the specs at the top.

Thanks anyway. Worth a shot

FWIW, the OG is supposed to be 1.054 not 10.54 LOL!
