Notes

Good recipe for beginners.

Substitute hops: Cascade, Simcoe, Hallertau, Saaz.

If your water is low in mineral content, add 2 tsp of Calcium Chloride.

Steep the crushed grains in a grain bag for 45 minutes at 150F. Then boil for 60 minutes. Top off with cooled water.

Loosely based on The Brew Mentor's Easy Blonde, and a rusty memory of my first few extract batches that went well.
