YEAST Amer­i­can Ale *** DI­REC­TIONS

Steep the roasted bar­ley with the 120L crys­tal malt in a grain bag for 30 min­utes at roughly 160°F (71°C). Re­move the malt sack and add the malt ex­tract. Bring to boil and add hops per the sched­ule above. At 10 min­utes, add the brown su­gar. At end of boil, add the fin­ish­ing hops.

BREWER’S NOTES

You can ad­just the malt ex­tract vol­ume and ra­tio (*) as de­sired. If you want it stronger, make it stronger. If you want it all grain, make it all grain. We use Mon­tana-grown and -malted Met­calf 2-row bar­ley that reg­is­ters about 2 Lovi­bond.

More hops (**) is not what we’re go­ing for here. Make it mel­low.

Amer­i­can Ale yeast (***) is not a tra­di­tional strain for Scotch ales but works great and tastes great.
