April Beer
I really needed to get the Easter beer in the bottle, so while I was doing that, I figured I might as well fire up another batch. That and the fact that I bought enough ingredients for a second batch when I did the Easter batch. Essentially the same recipe except that I reused the yeast from the Easter beer.

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
Recycled Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.052

Update May 20 - A couple of weeks ago I racked the beer and added a fuggles plug in the fermentation vessel. Today's specific gravity reading was 1.012 - 5.0% alcohol. So I bottled it all up!
