Notes

A really floral Amber ale. Just enough bitterness that everyone will enjoy. Closely resembles Widmer Alchemy ale. Recipes don't get much easier and much better for the extract brewer. Steep your grains at 165 for 45 minutes before your boil when you add your extract. Then remove grains and boil, add your extract. Return to boil, add hops at timed intervals. Cool to 70ish and pitch yeast in a sanitized fermenter. Once your airlock stops bubbling transfer into a glass carboy for 2 to 3 weeks, I Kegged mine but bottling is standard rules of 3/4 cup of corn sugar in 2 cups of boiling water and transfer into bottling bucket or carboy. Then bottle. Have fun with this recipe. It's the most basic you can get for partial mash brewing. Soon you will be adding more grains and using less extract.
