Two take on an excellent beer courtesy of a neighbour. October 2019.

Ingredients

  • 1kg light malt extract (ie. liquid)
  • 2kg malt (dry)

  • Ale Yeast: 0#4 Safale Yeast
  • 60g Cascade Hops (dry hopping)

Method

  • 10L boil to dissolve malts (too much – hard to cool)
  • Add hops and boil for 20min
  • Add to fermenter with cool 5L water (too hot, had to cool)
  • Put in fridge, dry pitch yeast at 20°C
  • Dry hop in a sock at day 4. Remove at day 8.
