Ingredients (All Grain2.5 gal)

  • 4.5 lbs Pilsen Malt; Best Malz

    Pilsen Malt; Best Malz

    Our first class BEST Pilsen Malt gives beer a fresh and rounded taste. It can be used for all types of light beer. It also forms an excellent “light” foundation for almost all beer specialities. The malt is produced from high-quality two-row-spring barley, which was grown in the best German and European barley regions. The properties of the malt: low protein levels, high extract content, light colour and high enzymatic activity.

  • 1 lbs 2-Row Carapils® Malt; Briess

    2-Row Carapils® Malt; Briess

    Very low color or flavor contribution. Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .3 lbs Vienna Malt; Best Malz

    Vienna Malt; Best Malz

    BEST Vienna Malt deepens the light and brilliant colour of the beer and creates a pleasant, full-bodied taste. Selected brewing barley is used to produce the malt and manufactured according to a special malting process. This malt has a high enzymatic potential, too.

  • Fermentis S-23 Saflager S-23

    Fermentis S-23 Saflager S-23

    This bottom fermenting yeast is originating from the VLB (Berlin) in Germany and is known under the code RH. The strain is used by Western European commercial breweries and has been reported to produce lagers with some fruity and estery notes. Sedimentation: high. Final gravity: medium. Instructions:Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 23C ± 3C. Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C. Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.
