Notes

Before mashing, toast the 4 oz. of Pale Malt at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, crush, and steep with other listed grains.

Ferment at 68 for 2 weeks, then transfer to secondary and dry hop. Condition cool (50-55) for 3 to 4 weeks.

Add Gelatin (optional for clarification) and cold crash 3 days prior to bottling. Bottle and age at 55-60 for 3 weeks. Chill 3 days, enjoy!!

A very pale, golden ale with lots of hop aroma. This beer is light in body and mild in flavor, making it seem hoppier than it really is. There are also notes of crackers, bread, toast, and grain.

A perfect summer grilling house beer...
