Sam Who's Boston Style Ale???

Source: Allen Reynolds
Recipe added: 12/21/96

I set out trying to come close to Samuel Adams Stock Ale and still keep the recipe as simple as possible. I was quite pleased with this beer and have brewed this one several times. The first time I tried it , it left me wanting a little bit more alcohol bite to it, so I added the 1/2 lb dried malt. I've had orig. gravities from 1.040 to 1.048 with this beer, so the 1.045 is an approxamation. This is a beer for hopheads!

Batch Size: 5 U.S. Gallons

Bring 1 1/2 gallons water to boil,then add malt extracts and Kent Goldings hops and boil for 20 minutes. Add Willamette hops and continue boiling 25 minutes more. Add 1/2 oz Saaz hops and continue boiling for 15 minutes,then remove from heat, add remaining 1/2 oz. Saaz hops, and let them steep for 1-2 minutes. Place 2 gallons COLD water in a 5 or 6 gallon carboy, then strain out wort onto cold water in carboy and top off with enough water to make a total of 5 gallons. Pitch yeast when cool, and allow to ferment completely befor bottling. At bottling, boil 3/4 cup corn sugar in 1 cup water for 15 minutes and let cool. Prime the beer with this and then bottle. Allow to age at least 2 weeks in bottle before drinking.
