1. 1.8kg Light liquid malt extract

2.    1 kg  Brew Enhancer

3.      110 g Goldings Hops

4.      250g Crystal Malt

5.        500g Lt Dried Powder Malt Extract

6  Finishing Hops (Cascade or Wiiliamette )

7      Yeast- best use Gervin Ale Yeast

 Boil 1 , 4 and 3 in as much water as possible( about three gallons is best but you can use much less)

After 30 mins boil strain off into  a clean sterilised bucket and add no 2  and no 5 . Stir well to dissolve

Make up to 5 gallons with cold water and leave to cool below 24 C

Add yeast and leave to ferment for about 5 days  or until all signs of fermentation have finished.(Bubbles stop rising)

At this point add the Finishing hops. We usually go the tea bag route, make them up like a cup of tea and add the liquor to the fermenter!

-Syphon off into a barrel or bottles using ½ teaspoon of sugar per pint to prime bottles or 50 to 100 g to a pressure barrel.

Leave in a warm place for 5 days then into a cool place to clear----Cheers!
