Big Ed's Munich Style Ale
The start of football season means its time to fire up the still. Well not the still actually, but the brew kettle. Its time to MAKE SOME BEER! After Marissa's game today, we headed to the beer store to pick up some supplies. Tomorrow I'll be mixing up a batch of Big Ed's Munich Style Ale. Here is the recipe:


7 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
5.5 - 6.0 Gallons of Water
1.5 ounces of Challenger Hops (10.1%)
.5 ounce of Hallertau Hops (3.5%)
1.75 ounce package of Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Bring water to 160 degrees - shut off the heat and steep the ground Malt for 30 minutes. Remove grain, add fire, bring to a boil. Add the Malt Extract. Add the Challenger hops. Boil for 58 minutes. Add the Hallertau hops. Boil for 2 more minutes. Cool wort to 80 degrees. Drain 2 quarts and save in Fridge. Move the rest to 8 gal carboy. Add yeast. Ferment for one week, then rack wort to clean carboy. Ferment another week. Add back the 2 quarts unfermented wort and bottle. Ferment in bottle one more week. Enjoy!
