This is from a kit that turned out particularly well. I take no credit for the recipe but for those interested in a RIS, it is excellent.
6.6 lbs Plain Dark Malt Extract
2 lbs Plain Dark Dry Malt Extract
8 oz Crushed Roasted Barley
8 oz Crushed Black Patent
1 lb Crushed Crystal Malt 60L
1 oz Yakima Magnum Hops (Bittering)
50 mL Activator Liquid Yeast
2 gal Water
Fill the pot with 2 gallons of water.
Place the Patent, Barley and Crystal Malt in a steeping bag for 20 minutes at 140 - 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the steeping bags and bring the wort to a boil.
Add the DME and Hops and boil for 60 minutes stirring occasionally.
Cool the wort afterward, transfer it to the fermenter. add the yeast and seal.
My first batch averaged around 4% ABV. It is very drinkable and I had a noticeable buzz going on after a couple at the tailgate today
