Goulash Alt

This is a recipe I've made up. I'm calling it goulash Alt because it is basically and Alt beer recipe, but I'm making it of ingredients I have left over. Not exactly a prize winning strategy, but we'll see how it goes.

14:45 Put 5.5 gal of water into the brew pot and start the heat.

Put 1 lb of crystal 40 L and 0.1 lb of Black Patent into a steeping bag and crush the grains.

15:11 T = 157 F, put the grains in to steep. Turn down the heat some

15:41 T = 168 F, remove grains from the pot and turn the heat up.

15:53 Wort boiling, add 3.3 lbs Amber LME and 3.0 lbs light DME. Turn heat back up

16:07 Boiling stats, add 1.0 oz of Galena

16:57 Add 0.5 oz of Williamette

17:07 End boil, start to cool wort

18:45 End the cooling of the wort with a temperature near 80 F

18:54 T = 82 F SG = 1.050 ASG = 1.053 and pitch WLP036 Dusseldorf Alt Yeast
