Try this recipe for your next Boston Beer Party. It was developed by a bloke from down under after a visit to the States where he found that Sam Adam's was the only drinkable beer in America. He said, This is a very different American beer, with the color of a plain pale ale, the tangy flavor of a lager and the full body and bitter aftertaste of an Indian Pale Ale.



Place 1 gallon of water into the brew kettle. Place hop pellets into a boiling bag and tie closed. Put the Caravienne Malt into the other boiling bag and place in water along with the hops. Bring the water to a boil and remember to remove the grain bag just prior to the boiling point. Leave the hops in the pot.

Stir the DME into the kettle and boil for 10 minutes. Stir the kettle frequently to prevent darkening of the wort.

Turn off the heat and stir in the Muntons Premium Bitter Extract. Keep stirring until the extract is completely dissolved.

Remove and discard the hop pellet boiling bag.

Quickly chill the wort to 140° by placing kettle into a sink of ice water. Pour chilled wort into primary fermenter and top off to the 5 gallon mark with cold water.

Pitch yeast when temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees.

Cover the fermenter, add airlock, and ferment for 7-10 days.

When ready to bottle, boil the priming sugar with 1 cup water until dissolved. Pour mixture into bottling bucket. Siphon beer from fermenter into bottling bucket.

Fill and cap bottles as usual.
