Classification: alt, German ale, extract

This was my second batch of homebrew and really turned out well. It had a very hoppy flavor with just the right bitterness for my taste. The cracked grains led to a nice copper color. Some drinkers compared it to Washington DC's Old Heurich.

For my next batch, I plan to reserve some of the hops and add them during the last 5 minutes of the boil or dry hopping. Combine with cold water to make 5 gallons, cool and pitch yeast at 75 degrees. Ferment until completion and bottle with corn sugar.



Add cracked grains to 3 gallons of cold water and heat. Once boiling, remove grains. Add extract and hops and boil for 1 hour.
