Big Ed's Lydiard Ale
For Christmas Fran got me a couple of pounds of Organic New Zealand Hallertau Hops. Given that today was the last day before it was back to grind of work, I fired up the brew kettle.

7.0 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
6.0 - 7.0 Gallons of Water
1.5 ounces of Hallertau Hops (7.5%) Boiling
0.5 ounce of
Hallertau Hops (7.5%) Finishing
Wyeast 1028 London Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.046

Notes Jan 11 - It took two days to get the yeast starter working. I pitched that sucker on Wednesday morning and it was strong from there. Today I racked the brew, added a pint of wort, and 5/8 oz of Hallertau hops. Specific Gravity: 1.034

Notes Jan 25 - Specific Gravity 1.014 - Added 3 pints of gyle and bottled.

Notes April 25 - This batch turned to cider.  Not sure what went wrong.
