Notes

Boil for 90 minutes with the above hop additions to acquire 5.5 gallons to the fermenter.

Ferment at 63-64°F for 3-5 days, then allow the fermentation temperature to rise naturally to 68°F. Rack to secondary (if desired) after the first week for another 10-14 days. Bottle using the 4oz of corn sugar for priming, or keg.

Fall/Thanksgiving Beer Option:

This beer can easily be made into a delicious Fall/Seasonal beer by replacing the Cascade dry hop with a teaspoon of Jamaican Allspice at flame out. That is all it takes. Remember a little Allspice goes a long way!
