My best batch of the winter, highly recommended.
I drank the last bottle on June 6 (brewed Jan. 25). It was still in

Try this mild ale malt stuff....it's really good!
- 7 pounds, mild ale malt
- 3 pounds, US 6-row malt
- 2 ounces, Cascade (leaf) - boil 75 min.
- 1 ounce, Cascade (leaf) - boil 30 min.
- 1/2 ounce, Cascade (leaf) - boil 15 min.
- 1/2 ounce, Cascade (leaf) - steep for 15 min. after the boil
- 1/2 ounce, Cascade (leaf) - dry hop in the secondary
- ale yeast
The Cascade hops were fresh and very aromatic, from the fall '91
harvest. Alpha acid was about 5%; alas I didn't write it down. I used
Edme yeast, although I doubt if I would ever again usedried yeast on a
beer like this (or any beer?). Fortunately, I got no infections.
