Notes
Mash at 149° F (65° C) for 60–75 minutes.

Collect 5.9 gallons (22 L) of wort. Add hops with 60 minutes left in the boil. Chill wort to 54° F (12° C). Aerate and pitch yeast from yeast starter. Let ferment, allowing the temperature to rise to 64° F (18° C). After fermentation stops, allow the beer to sit for 3–7 days. Then, add bottling sugar to prime for 4 volumes of CO2 and bottle in heavy bottles.
