More Christmas Beer.
Earlier this week I went back to the home brew store for some more ingredients. There are still too many bottles that need to be filled! So following on the the process from two weeks ago I decided to do the grain on the stove. This time I followed the Step Mashing processes pretty closely - as close as one can get without a real lauter tun any way. I can see that this is going to lead me very quickly into doing beers from 100% grain, rather than the standard recipe. For today we did:

7.5 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
0.5 ounce of Fuggles Plugs Hops (4.0%) Finishing
Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.053

Note Dec 30: Yesterday I racked the wort and added a fuggle plug.

Note Jan 05: Specific Gravity of 1.011 - Bottled this batch!
