Notes

Make starter 2 days in advance of brew day, by dissolving 6oz Pilsen 2L DME in 1000mL boiling water, then chilling to <80F and pitching 2 packs WLP051 into mason jar; aerate and cover loosely with tin foil, stirring with sanitized utensil periodically

After draining grain bag and sparge/rinse, add boiling water to bring kettle to 4.5 gals, and begin 75 min boil.

After 15 min, add
2 lbs DME
After 45 min, add
1.25 oz Chinook
After 60 min, add
3 lbs DME
3 oz fresh Glacier
1 tsp Irish Moss
After 65 mins, add
0.5 tsp yeast nutrient
After 75 mins (flameout), stop boil and chill to 70


Aerate wort and add up to 1 gal pre-boiled/chilled water to achieve OG (target 1.057 for 4.5 gals)

Pitch yeast sediment and aerate, ferment at 68F

After ~1 week (FG achieved), add dry hops for another 7 days
(consider racking over to 6.5gal fermenter to get off yeast, with drop hops at bottom)

bottle to 2.5 vols CO2 (using 3.6oz of corn sugar for 4.5 gals), boiled for 5 mins in 2 cups water
