    INGREDIENTS FOR 1 BBL OF FINISHED WORT
    54 lb pale malt
    14 lb flaked maize
    5 lb carmel malt
    2.5 lb black malt
    0.5 lb domestic hops
    0.5 lb imported hops
    Original extract = 18 °P
    The brewing procedures used in the pre-Prohibition Pale Lager can be used for this one as well. I have found that it works best to add the black malt during the last 15 min of the mash.

    Do you seriously brew this as a 1bbl batch?

    as are most old recipes. I've found some that are basically how to make beer, but just say 3 to 4 bushels of preferably malted grain (use more if not malted), and add a lb of hops, and a qt of "yeast".

    given the age of the recipe, i'd say cluster for the domestic and noble hops for the imported.

    Now we're talkin. Full 60 min boil with both hops?
