Notes

Steep grains in muslin bag in 2 gallons water heated to 160 degrees for 20 minutes, remove and discard grain bag. Stir in extract, return to heat and bring to a boil. Add hops, boil 45 minutes. Add dried orange peel, boil additional 15 minutes. Put 3 gallons very cold water into fermenter then pour in hot wort. Cool below 80 degrees, then pitch yeast, attach cover and attach air lock. Ferment until final gravity remains constant 2-3 days apart, then bottle. Fermentation temperatures above 72 degrees will enhance banana flavor, below will enhance clove flavors.
