Carbonation and Storage

Carbonation Type: Kegged (Forced CO2)Volumes of CO2: 2.4
Pressure/Weight: 12.7 PSICarbonation Used: -
Keg/Bottling Temperature: 43.0 FAge for: 21.0 days
Storage Temperature: 43.0 F 


Do a single-step infusion mash at 158 F (any where in the upper 150s will do) for sixty minutes. Sparge to the brewpot and begin the boil. Once the hot break has died down, add all the hops and boil for sixty minutes. With ten minutes left in the boil, add the Irish Moss. Chill, transfer to the fermenter and pitch the starter. Try to keep the primary temperature between 60-65deg F. After primary fermentation is done, rack and "lager" the beer at fridge temperatures for two to three weeks (or as long as you can stand it). Carbonate via your favorite method and enjoy!
