Brew update

Well the Copper Snail is ready to bottle. I need to do that tonight.

Saturday was the making of Austin Homebrew's version of Rolling Rock.
What a wonderful brew. I have done this recipe before, and I highly recommend it. It is very smooth and tasty, with a slight resemblance to the 'real' Rolling Rock you buy in the store.

First the G3 concert, then Stevie Ray doing his "Austin City limits" concert on the DVD player, ice cold home brew at hand. Life is good.

Here's the recipe:
Austin Homebrew Rolling Rock

Fermentables:

4# Pale Extract
1# Corn Syrup
1# Flaked Maize
1/2 # Pilsner Malt

Adjuncts:
1# Cara-Pils

Boiling Hops:
1 1/2 oz. Hallertau

Finish Hops:
1/2 oz Hallertau flavor

Yeast:
Wyeast American Lager 2035

Procedure:
Bring temp to around 120* and mash 60 minutes
Sparge with 1 gallon water.
'Boil' < 195* for 60 minutes
1 1/2 oz. Hallertau for 60 minutes - bittering
1/2 oz. Hallertau last 15 minutes - flavor.

Of course, get the temp down below 80* before adding the yeast.
