OK, this is about as simple as it gets: One malt, one hop, and single infusion mash. When you only use a small number of ingredients and you don’t do extra work to transform them, you really have to make quality choices. So, don’t skimp with your ingredients selection.

I’m balancing the beer to be somewhat like the original Schierlinger, a 5% ABV beer. I’ll shoot for 18 IBUs since there will be some malty sweetness to balance.
