I am please to say that I took third last year in the NHC with this one. :)
I have a few suggestions added after the recipe/notes which I think would be
Med. amber color. Clean sweet taste. Hop very subtle. Quite close to Anchor
Steam. Silver award from NHC! Favorite beer yet! Very quaffalbe.
I would use cascade for flavor and aroma. Perhaps 1/2 oz for ten minutes
and 1/2 oz for finish. That may be a bit much.
I might consider using a light malt extract, possibly upping the chyrstal,
maybe not. The judges all said my beer was a little dark.
- 7 lbs amber malt extract
- 1 lb 20L chyrstal malt
- 1 1/2 oz cluster hops (boiling)
- 1/2 oz cluster hops (finishing)
- 1 package Wyeast California (2112)
- 3/4 cup corn sugar (bottling)
Starter made 2 days ahead instead of one. Steep grains for 30 minutes. Sparge
into kettle. Boil extract and hops for 60 minutes.
