I decided to follow that anonymous maxim and “Relax, don’t worry. Have a homebrew.”
Past weeks have been a little complex for me, and I was just needing this.
I decided to use a recipe suggested on a famous book. “The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing” by Charlie Papazian is a very good bedtime book, where you can always find a correct answer, explained in a very clear manner. There I found a recipe that inspired me to achieve this one, matching my equipment.
- 5 lbs malted barley
- 1 lb dextrine malt
- 1 lb toasted malted barley
- 4 tsp gypsum
- 10 lb bierhaus hopped lager kit malt extract syrup
- 2 lb light dried malt extract
- 3 oz hallertauer hops
- 1 oz saaz hops (finishing)
- 1/2 tsp irish moss
- 3 packages lager yeast
It is supposed to be a Dortmund Lager, but I’ll tell you what did really came out of it in about 3 or 4 weeks.
