Double Ale

Posted by Ben Evert | 8:34 AM | , | 1 comments »

This is one of my first recipes that I designed and actually wrote down. The term double is more for the number of pounds of grain or equivalent per gallon of water. For example, 2 pounds of grain per gallon of water = double. It's a pretty simple recipe and was hopped up. If you wish to tone down the hops, then cut the boil time by 1/2.

Double Ale


Ingredients:


3 1/2 lbs Amber Malt Extract

8 oz Crystal Malt Grain

4 oz Pale Malt Grain

4 oz Oat Grain

1 oz Cascade Hops

1 oz Fuggle Hops

1/2 Teaspoon Irish Moss

1 packet Muntons Ale Yeast

3/8 cup Corn Sugar (priming)


Date Brewed: March 21, 2001

Original Gravity: 1.049

Pitching Temp: About 100 degrees

Primary Fermentation: 1 week at 64 degrees


Procedures:


1. Steep Grains for 1/2 hour

2. Strain grains and add to brew pot along with 1 gallon water

3. Add Malt Extract and allow to boil

4. When wort begins to boil, add 1/2 of the Hops and boil for 1 hour

5. After 1 hour, remove hops and add the other 1/2 of hops, boil for 1/2 hour

6. Last 15 minutes of boil, add Irish Moss


Notes: Cascade hops 7.3%, IBU's around 60, more of an IPA.
