Calculations derived from Ray Daniels' book Designing Great Beers.


Mash in at 145° F (63° C) and hold for 60 minutes.  Slowly raise the mash temperature to 169° F (76° C), then sparge with 173° F (78° C) water. Add the hops to the boil kettle and collect enough runoff to end up with 5.3 gallons (20 L) after a 70-minute boil (approximately 6.4 gallons, or 24 L). Bring to a boil for 70 minutes, and then turn off the heat. Next, chill to 62-65° F (17-18° C), transfer to a fermenter, pitch the yeast and aerate well.  Continue fermenting at 65° F (18° C) for a total of one week.  Rack to secondary for another week.  Rack to keg, or if you are bottling, add the bottling sugar and then bottle as you normally would.
