  • 1.5 lb. Amber DME

  • .25 oz. Fuggle (60 min)
  • .25 oz. Fuggle (5 min)

  • Steep at 155° for 25 minutes

       Bring 1 gal. of water to 155°. Steep the Chocolate and Crystal 120L for 25 min. and then remove bag of grain. Add DME and stir to dissolve.  Bring to a boil and add .25 oz Fuggle to start your 60 min boil. And add your .25 oz. Fuggle with 5 minutes left in your 60 minute boil. Then, shut off the heat. Cover pot with lid, and put pot in an ice bath to cool the wort down (approx 15-20 min.) to 70°. Pour into sanitized primary fermenter. Take Original Gravity (OG) reading. Add Safale 05 and stir in vigorously to start fermentation. Seal primary fermenter, attach airlock half-filled with water, and let sit at 70° for 5-7 days.

     After 7 days, siphon into 1 gal. glass carboy for secondary fermentation. Then top up to base of neck with boiled water that has been cooled down if necessary. Let sit at 70° for 14 days.

      After 14 days of fermenting, you are ready to bottle. Dissolve 2 Tbsp sugar in a few ounces of microwaved water. Allow to cool and siphon beer back into bucket, and stir in sugar water evenly. Proceed to bottle. Allow bottles to sit at room temperature for up to 2 weeks for carbonation.  Refrigerate and enjoy!
