Easter Beer
What better way celebrate Easter, than to fire up the brew kettle. Following the usual recipe and building on the Jan 20 Batch:

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%) Boiling
1.0 ounce of Fuggles Plugs Hops (4.0%) Finishing
Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.052

Like last time, I just threw the hops into the boil rather than use a hop sack. What a mess. I like the results, but the dang hops clog up my siphon tubes. I am going to need some more equipment apparently.

Update April 15 - Today I racked the wort and added a half ounce Fuggles Plug into the fermentation.
Update April 29 - Specific Gravity 1.012, 5% alc. Bottled.
