Cranberry Ale

Posted by Unknown | 8:34 PM | , | 0 comments »

Here's an idea for a holiday beer since cranberries are usually abundant in the next couple of months.  
    5 pounds, pale malt extract syrup
    1 pound, corn sugar
    2 ounces, Hallertauer hops (boil)
    1/2 ounce, Hallertauer hops (finish)
    6 pounds, cranberries
    ale yeast
    corn sugar (priming)

    Crush cranberries. Boil wort. Add cranberries to wort at time finishing hops are added. Turn off heat and steep at least 15 minutes. Pour wort into fermenter with enough water to make 5 gallons. Pitch yeast. After about 5 days, strain into secondary fermenter, avoiding sediment. Bottle after about 1 more week. Age bottles about 2 weeks.

    Primary Ferment: 5 days
    Secondary Ferment: 1 week
