KGB Bitters

1  can  Alexanders Sun Country pale malt extract
3 1/3  pounds  Northwestern Amber malt extract
1/2  pound  Dark crystal malt
3  ounces  CFJ-90 Fresh hops
1/4  teaspoon  Irish moss
    Ale yeast

Put all grains in brewpot with cool water. Remove when boil commences. Add malt extract and 1-1/2 ounce of hops. Boil 1 hour. Strain out boiling hops and add 1/2 ounce more hops and Irish moss. Boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add another 1/2 ounce of hops. Steep 10 minutes and cool. Strain wort into primary fermenter with cold water to make 5 gallons. Add final 1/2 ounce of hops.

Water was filtered with a simple activated carbon system. This seems to make a big difference. Amateur judge commented, "Beautiful color. A bit under carbonated. Great hop nose and finishes very clean. Good balance with malt and hops, but lighten up on finishing hops a bit and it's perfect. Very marketable."
