Notes:


Water choice: Zephyrhills

Sugar is demerara (raw sugar) or evaporated cane sugar. This is picked up from The Baker's Catalog, or BulkFoods (http://www.bulkfoods.com/)

Ferment cool @ 62F.

(Note: We usually add .5lb DME and .5lb DME to these totals. Lately its been 2 lb demerara and 2 lb malt extract -- or maybe 2.5 if we feel "generous"...)

Weyermann Cararoma makes for a slightly darker version of this beer. :)
