7-Mile Red Ale


  • 6.6 pounds, of Northwestern amber malt extract
  • 3/4 pound, 60 degree L Crystal Malt
  • 2-1/2 ounces, Fuggles hop plugs (4.6% alpha)
  • 1 ounce, Cascades whole leaf hops. (5%-ish alpha)
  • 1 package, Glen-brew ale yeast


Steep crystal malt for 30 minutes in 150 degree water. Sparge into brew pot of hot water and add malt
extract. Bring to boil and add 1 ounce Fuggles. 20 minutes later add another ounce. At the 40 minute mark,
toss in the final half ounce of fuggles. (Almost threw in a full ounce, but after tasting wort, decided against it—
-plenty bitter at this point.) Turn off heat and add Cascades. Stirred down the hops slowly and let sit for about
10 minutes. Strain all into fermenter containing ice water. Cooled. Pitched yeast. Single stage ferment. Keg,
and age a few days.
