Category: Brewing

 Ingredients List

  • 7 lb Australian Light Malt Syrup
  • 3/4 lb Light Crystal Malt
  • 2 1/4 oz Nugget Hops
  • (1-3/4 ounce for boiling
  • 1/2 oz For finishing)
  • 2 ts Gypsum
  • 1 oz Dextrin Malt
  • 3/4 c Corn Sugar (priming)
  • Wyeast London Ale Yeast


Crack and steep crystal malt at 155 - 170 F for about 45 minutes in 1/2
gallon of water. Add extract, gypsum, dextrin and 2 gallons of water.
Bring to boil, then add 1 3/4 oz. hops. Boil for 45 minutes, then add
1/2 oz. hops at the end of the boil for 15 minutes. About four years ago I
ordered a bottle of Full Sail Ale while having lunch in Portland, Oregon.
Full Sail was the most expensive beer on the menu, and I figured that at
$2.75 a bottle I didn't have much to lose. Several others who were with me
did the same, and were pleasantly surprizedFull Sail offers a
reasonably complex (a hint of sweetness along with medium strong hops and
a rich malty flavor) taste and aroma in a medium-bodied ale. Since I first
tasted this ale, I had to rely on others making trips to the Northwest to
bring back six packs of this ale. A few months ago, I visited the Hood
River Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon. I was able to get enough
information to experiment with a homebrew recipe for Full Sail Ale. My
first experiment turned out remarkably similar to the real thing in body,
aroma, and flavor. Original Gravity: 1.045 Final Gravity: 1.020 Primary
