Recipe Characteristics

Batch Notes

Pre-boil volume: 23L. Estimated post-boil volume: 20L.





Mash at 67°C for 60 minutes or until saccharification is complete. Boil for 60 minutes. Add the first hop addtion 10 minutes into the boil (i.e. boil this hop addition for 50 minutes). Add the Irish Moss 50 minutes into the boil (i.e. 10 minutes before the end of the boil). Add the second hop addition at flameout (end of boil) and steep for 5 minutes. Chill the wort and transfer to fermenter, pitch yeast and ferment as usual.

To make 25L instead of 20 increase the amount of all ingredients except the Irish Moss by 25%.
