Sam Atoms

Classification: amber lager, Vienna, Maerzen, Samuel Adams, all-grain

Source: Bob Jones ( Issue #968, 9/14/92

This beer is a very close clone of Sam Adams. There is some sort of synergy between the cascade hops and kettle hops used here that is hard to explain. The flowery cascade nose is not present as you would expect. The nose is a more complex blend of malt and hops, sort of a spicy quality.

I hope you all make as good a beer as this recipe made for me.

Ingredients: (10 gallons)


Mash grains at 154F for approximately 60 minutes. Mashout at 170 for 10 minutes.
