Infusion Mash at 145 degrees for 90 minutes can be subbed for step mash.

Acidulated malt can be subbed for lactic acid or any other acid to get the mash down to 5.4 PH.

Use a 3-4L starter for 10 gallons
Pitch starter @ 64F and allow temp to rise to 80F over 1 week

About 2-3 days after pitching, when the primary is just past high krausen and falling, boil 1/2 gallon of water and disolve cane sugar in it, cover and let cool to room temp and add sugar to achieve 93% attenuation

After fermentation, cold crash for 24-48 hours, rack to keg with gelatin for crystal clear beer and allow to cold condition for 10 weeks

Force carb @ 30 psi for 48 hours for high carbonation.
