Notes

Christmas Pyre Ale

Sacch rest at 150F for 60 min. First wort hops added at 160F. Boil. Kill the flame, add whirlpool hops and Fir needles (2 cups volumetrically), swirl and cover for 45 minutes. Aroma hops added at 160F during chill. Chill rapidly, aerate, ferment at 64F for 14 days or so. Cold crash for 2 days to 35F, rack, fine, re-rack, and then bring back to 70F for dry hopping. Four day 2 stage dry hop. Bottle and condition for 21 days at room temps.
