Step by Step
Dissolve malt extract into 4 gal. (15 L) of hot water, then top up to 6 gal. (23 L). Total boil is 60 min., adding the Galena hops as the wort comes to a boil. Boil 30 min. more and add the first addition of Cascade hops. Boil 30 min. more, turn off heat, and add 2 oz. Cascade. Stir wort to create a whirlpool and then let settle for 10 minutes. Cool and aerate. Pitch yeast at 68 °F (20 °C).

Ferment at 65 to 68 °F (18 to 20 °C).  After 3 weeks, transfer to secondary and age for one to two months. About one week prior to packagin, add Cascade dry hops in the secondary. Bottle with corn sugar and fresh yeast.
