Notes

Mash the grains at 153°F (67°C). Mash out, vorlauf, and then sparge at 170°F (77°C). Collect at least 6.5 gallons (25 L) of wort. Boil for 60 minutes, adding the hops as instructed. After the boil is complete, begin a whirlpool in the kettle and let the knockout hops rest in the hot wort for at least 30 minutes before chilling. Chill the wort, pitch the yeast, and ferment at 68°F (20°C) for 1 week. After final gravity has been achieved, add a clarifying agent such as polyclar. Three days later, add your first set of dry hops to the primary fermenter. After 7 days, rack the beer off the dry hops and yeast cake into a keg or secondary fermenter. Purge with carbon dioxide if available. Add the second set of dry hops to the keg or secondary fermenter. After 5 days, add the priming sugar and bottle or keg.
