Brewer's Notes

Coopers European Lager tin (instead of 1.7kg Coopers LME).
OG 1052, FG 1013 (measured).
31 IBU (including kit bitterness).
Lager kit yeast and Salflager w34/70.
5.5% in bottle.
Steep crushed carapils for 30mins then sparge. 6L boil with additional DME to bring boil gravity to approx 1040. Added hops at 15, 10 and 0 mins. Allow cool using desired method. Prepare yeast starters of kit and w34/70. Pour all into fermenter and top up with cold (refridgerated) water to 12degC and ferment at that temperature. Leave in primary for at least two weeks. Allow four weeks after bottling for carbonation and conditioning. Consider crash chilling for a clearer beer
