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)
