Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

Steep crushed malts in three gallons of water at 150º F for 30 min. Remove grains from wort, add malt syrup and powder and bring to a boil. Add Fuggles (bittering) hops, Irish moss and boil for 45 min. Add 1 ounce of EKG hops (flavor hops) for last 15 min. of the boil. Add 1.5 ounce of Fuggle (aroma) hops for the last two minutes of the boil.

When done boiling, strain out hops, add wort in a sanitary fermenter, and top off with cool water to 5.5 gallons. Cool the wort to 80º F, aerate the beer and pitch your yeast. Allow the beer to cool over the next few hours to 68-70º F, and ferment for 10-14 days. Bottle your beer, age for two to three weeks and enjoy!
