PhillipsHead Ale
Yesterday I whipped up another batch of beer in tribute to David Guthrie Phillips. PhillipsHead Ale - When you are feeling screwed, enjoy a PhillipsHead and unwind.


7 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
5.5 - 6.0 Gallons of Water
1.25 ounces of Kent Golding Hops (6.6%) Boiling
1.25 ounce of Saaz (3.4%) Boiling
.5 ounce of Saaz Hops (3.4%)Finishing
1.75 ounce package of Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

In honor of David I gave the Carafoam a 30 minute rest around 55 degrees C, then another 20 minutes rest aroun 68 degrees C. Added the Malt extract. Brought to a boil. Added the Boiling hops. Cooked for an hour. Added the finishing hops - 2 more minutes boiling.

Specific Gravity worked out to 1.056
