3.33 lb Plain light malt extract
2.25 lb Maltose
0.75 oz Cascade hops (boil)
0.75 oz Cascade hops (finish)
Cultured Sierra Nevada
The maltose is a cheap rice-malt mix obtainable from oriental
markets. Boil malt, hops, and maltose in 2-1/2 gallons of cold water.
In last 2 minutes, add the finishing hops. The yeast was cultured
from a bottle of Sierra Nevada pale ale. By the next day, the yeast
did not seem to start, so I added a packet of Vierrka lager yeast.
Rack to secondary after one week. After another week, prime with 3/4
cup corn sugar and bottle. Color similar to any American lager.
Tastes much better, very mellow. The goal was to brew 5 gallons of
beer while only spending $10. This came to about $11. I'm not sure
what drives me to such frugalness, but having grown up with American
beer, sometimes I would rather have it with certain foods, like
pizza. Original Gravity: 1.038 Final Gravity: 1.006 Primary Ferment:
