There's a book called Clone Brews, check it out for a Grolsch recipe.

I am at work and my book is at home. Sorry.

Of course Grolsch is a lager, but here's the extract recipe from Clone Brews:

4oz 2.5L German light crystal malt
2oz German Munich malt

6.5lbs M&F extra light DME

1oz Northern Brewer hops for bittering

1tsp Irish moss and 1/4oz Hallertau Hersbrucker after boiling for 45 min

1/2oz Czech Saaz hops after boiling for 50 min

Recipe recommends Wyeast's 2042 Danish lager yeast.

Maybe someone can recommend a decent substitute for fermenting at ale temps. Of course it will still be different, but you should be able to get in the ballpark. I think it would benefit from a fairly long secondary, then cold conditioning for a while.

Best of luck, and welcome to the forum!

May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

If you are very patient you can brew lagers at room temp, just leave it for a very long time in the secondary. I have done 3 so far, no issues. They also take forever in the bottle.

I may try this recipe when I get some larger pots for all grain brewing, However this time I will lager in my keggerator, using a blanket or similar around my fermenter to help stabilize the temp as the air temp will vary 4 degrees, I am sure the liquid temp will only vary about 1 degree.

As an ale, I'd use Safale 5 or something else that is fairly neutral.

Side effects may include: not feeling your face when you're with me. If facial numbness continues for more than four hours, it could be a sign of a serious medical condition. Seek immediate medical help.
