I am really enjoying this Snow Cap ale I am getting at the local 7-11. I found a "clone" 6-gallon all-grain recipe for it and tried to convert it to an extract + steeping grains.
Hit most of the numbers on tastybrew.com but I am sure I didn't do it quite right?
I divided the specialty grains by roughly 5/6 (but I am steeping instead of mashing, is this right?).
I then added enough light dry extract to hit the OG (1.08). Kept the hops in the same timings and ratio but decreased amounts to hit the IBU (44).
The 6-gallon AG recipe had:
1.25# Crystal Malt (60L)
.5# Chocolate Malt
1 oz. Nugget (60 min)
1 oz. Fuggles (30 min)
1 oz. EK Golding (10 min)
For a 5 gallon extract I came up with:
8.5# Light DME
1.05# Crystal Malt (60L)
.42 Chocolate Malt
.33 oz. Nugget (60 min)
.33 oz. Fuggles (30 min)
.33 oz. EK Golding (10 min)
As a side note, they mention Willamette on the web site but not fuggles?
Thoughts (preferably related to the above subject matter)?
