House Recipes

All recipes are made to be adapted to your particular taste. The amount of bitterness can be adjusted using HBU or other methods. You can change the alcohol content by adding or subtracting the sugar (Malt Extract). Hop flavor or aroma can be changed by more or less hops at the end of boil & dry hop in the secondary fermenter at rack. Body or mouth feel can be adjusted by going to a lighter colored or less malt(for less body) or refined sugar, and can be increased by adding malto dextrin, darker malt, flavor grains, or more malt extract . Body and flavor can be changed with different yeast also. Gypsum can help extract bitterness, & help the clarity, but isn't as important for extract brewers as it is all for grain brewers(adjusts ph also). For a 5 gallon batch an approximation of alcohol content(your hydrometer is more accurate) is to take the total pounds of all sugar (malt extract, honey, dextrose or what ever) and subtract 2(6 pounds of malt minus 2=4%, or 9 pounds of malt minus 2=7% alcohol by volume).
