 Ingredients List

  • 6 lb Light M&F dried malt
  • Extract
  • 1 c English 2-row pale malt
  • 1 c Crystal Malt 60L
  • 1 c Crystal Malt 120L
  • 1 1/2 oz Northern Brewer hop pellets
  • (alpha = 6.5; 50 min.)
  • 1/2 ts Irish Moss (15 min.)
  • 1 oz Northern Brewer hop pellets
  • (1 min.)
  • Wyeast #2035 American Lager
  • Yeast
  • (cultured from a previous
  • Batch)
  • 3/4 c Corn sugar for priming


Toasted pale malt in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cracked it along
with the crystal and steeped in 2 quarts of 150-175 degree water for 20
minutes. Sparged with approx. 1 gallon of water. Dissolved DME in sparge
water plus cold water to make 3 and 1/2 gallons. Boiled for 60 min.,
adding hops and Irish Moss for indicated times. Chilled with a 2-gallon
ice block and 20 degree outdoor temps. Racked off hot/cold break, topped up
to 5 gallons, pitching a 2-3 cup starter at about 90 degrees. IBUs
approximately 37. Single-stage fermentation for 14 days; bottled with
3/4 cup priming sugar. F.G. = 1.022, a little high, but fermentation was
definitely done. I did a side-by-side comparison of this brew to a bottle
of Anchor Steam, and here are the similarities/differences: This beer is
exactly the same color as Anchor Steam, but it's a bit cloudier due to a
little chill haze. The head is neither as big nor as long lasting as Anchor
Steam's, but it clings to the side of the glass better. This beer has
more body than Anchor Steam, and it is a bit maltier and sweeter; Anchor
Steam is crisper with more hop bitterness. It is not as carbonated as
Anchor Steam, although it would not be considered undercarbonated. All in
all a very good beer. Original Gravity: 1.049 Final Gravity: 1.022 Primary
Ferment: 14 days at 6871 degrees.
