Notes

Bring 1 gallon filtered or bottled water to boil
Add 1 lb DME and stir until dissolved and foam is gone
Add hops
Boil 20 minutes total, adding LME in last 2 minutes - turn up heat while adding LME to maintain boiling temperature and stir well to avoid scorching.
Turn off heat after 20 minute boil and cool with 1.625 gallons (6.5 quarts) of chilled filtered or bottled water (in LBK).
Continue cooling in fridge until wort temp is 65-67 degrees.
Pitch 1 Packet S-04 yeast.
Ferment 1 week maintaining ambient temperature of 65 degrees.
Check gravity on day 6 and day 7 to ensure FG is reached.
If fermentation is done and yeast is clearing at 1 week, either place in fridge to cold crash overnight or leave 2-3 more days to compact yeast.
Carefully transfer to bottling bucket and prime with preferred method.
Maintain 72+ degree temperature for bottles during carb and within one week they should be fully carbed.
