Makes 1 gallons with an O.G. of 34-40
1lb Lager Malt (crushed)
8oz Light Dried Malt Extract
3oz Flaked Maize
3/4oz Lager Hops (Hallertau / Saaz)
Water for Lager Brewing :- In hard water areas; boil 1.5 gallons of water with one crushed Campden Tablet for 20 minutes. Use this for all stages.
Place 2 pints of water in the mash pan and raise the temperature to 120°F (49° C). Stir in the crushed Lager Malt and flaked maize and raise temperature to 140°F (60°C), maintain for 30 minutes. Increase temperature to 150°F (65°C) for 1.5 hrs. Sparge to provide up to one gallon of wort and raise the temperature to boiling point. Stir in the light dried malt extract and 1/2oz of the hops. Control the temperature to give a rolling boil for one hour, adding the Irish Moss mid-way and the remaining 1/4 oz of hops, for about the last 5 minutes of the boil. Cool as quickly as possible. Strain into the fermenting bin and when cool top up to one gallon, check OG and pitch yeast. Mature for 2 months on completion and bottling.
