Beer Recipe of the Week

This is a nice and easy recipe if you want to try making an all grain beer.  To keep your costs down, you can use a colander.  I have one that has small holes and it works great for straining the grains.  The hardest thing is crushing the grain.  I bought a Corona crusher and it works fine, but is a real pain when doing 10 or more pounds.( I hand crank, seems more authentic.)

India Pale Ale (2gal)

Category India Pale Ale
Recipe Type All Grain

If you haven't tried mashing yet, you really should. You can start small and grow as equipment and funds permit. Also, by starting small, you don't have a large sum invested in equipment if you decide mashing isn't for you.

2.5 lb pale malt
5 oz crystal malt (80L)
1 oz willamette hops 5%
.5 oz willamette hops (finish)
Yeast Wyeast #1028 London ale
Procedure This is a 2-gallon batch. Mash in 5 quarts 132 degrees (140 degree strike heat). Adjust mash pH to 5.3. Boost temperature to 150 degrees. Mash 2 hours, maintaining temperature at 146-152 degrees. Mash out 5 minutes at 168 degrees. Sparge with 2 gallons of 165 degree water. Boil 90 minutes, adding hops in last hour. Add finishing hops 5 minutes before end of boil. Ferment at 70 degrees, 6 days in primary, 4 days in secondary.
