2.5 lbs Rye Malt

1 lb Biscuit

12 oz. Crystal 45

Hops (Pellets)

1 oz. Warrior 16%a, 60 minutes

1 oz. Columbus 15%a, 30 minutes

1 oz. Simcoe 13%a, 20 minutes

YeastWhite Labs WLP001 California Yeast or Wyeast 1056 American Ale

Dry-Hops: 1 oz. Simcoe (whole leaf)


Mash all grains for 75 minutes at 152 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

90 Minute boil with hop regimen above.

Primary ferment at 67 degrees.

Rack to keg or secondary and age for 4 weeks. Add dry hops for the last 10 days.
