Notes

Treat water with gypsum and mash grains for 1 hr at 157F. Boil for 70 min total, adding hops as indicated. To increase alcohol and dry out the beer, optionally add honey or corn sugar at the end of the boil.

Partial Mash version: Mash six-row and acidulated malt with flaked corn at 157F for 1 hr. Substitute 5.5lb Pilsner malt extract syrup. Drain mini-mash and sparge to desired boil volume; dissolve extract in wort, then proceed to boil.
