 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/3 lb Plain light malt extract
  • 2 1/4 lb Maltose
  • 3/4 oz Cascade hops (boil)
  • 3/4 oz Cascade hops (finish)
  • Cultured Sierra Nevada
  • Yeast


The maltose is a cheap rice-malt mix obtainable from oriental markets.
Boil malt, hops, and maltose in 2-1/2 gallons of cold water. In last 2
minutes, add the finishing hops. The yeast was cultured from a bottle of
Sierra Nevada pale ale. By the next day, the yeast did not seem to start,
so I added a packet of Vierrka lager yeast. Rack to secondary after one
week. After another week, prime with 3/4 cup corn sugar and bottle. Color
similar to any American lager. Tastes much better, very mellow. The goal
was to brew 5 gallons of beer while only spending $10. This came to about
$11. I'm not sure what drives me to such frugalness, but having grown up
with American beer, sometimes I would rather have it with certain foods,
like pizza. Original Gravity: 1.038 Final Gravity: 1.006 Primary Ferment: 1
