Directions

Infusion Step: Mash at 154 °F (68 °C) for 120 minutes.

Pretty typical brew. A longer than average mash time was used to hopefully thin out the final beer. The water to grist ratio was 1.45 lt/qt.

Hold in primary fermentor for 14 days at 73 °F (23 °C).

Allow to carbonate and age for 7 days at 40 °F (4 °C).
