1lb Crystal 60L
0.5lb US 2-Row Pale

Fermentables -
1lb Amber DME
1lb Light DME
3.3lb Extra Light LME
0.5lb local honey

Hops -

I'm bottling . . . a lot.

But it's still in the spirit of celebration!

My PM pale ale is still bubbling away very slowly. Gettin close...
But I keep thinkin I read 1979 for the year Jimmy Carter signed it into law,modifying the wording that was messed up back in '33.

I think it was signed in 1978, then passed/finalized the following spring.

One of the few things Carter did right.

Just cleaning kegs and the brew room today, getting ready for new glycol lines for the taps.

I was wondering, why are you are steeping a little amount of 2 row base malt?
