Bulwark American Lager


(This brewer had some problems with this batch, but it’s likely related to technique…the recipe looks sound. –Ed.)

  • 3 lbs 5 oz Munton & Fison American Light Malt Syrup (boil 60 mins)
  • 1 lb Munton & Fison Light Dried Malt Extract (boil 60 mins)
  • 1 oz Willamette Pellets (3.9% Alpha) (boil 45 mins)
  • 1/2 oz Cascade Pellets (5.6% Alpha) (boil 5 mins)
  • 1.75 oz WYeast #2035 American Lager
  • 1 teaspoon Irish Moss (boil 10 mins)
  • 4 oz Malto Dextrin (boil 30 mins)(note: I have no idea why I used

Brewing Log:
On commencing of boil, I added the Extracts and let boil for 15 minutes.
I added the Willamette and let boil for another 15 minutes.
I added the Malto Dextrin and let boil for 20 minutes.
I added the Irish Moss and let boil for 5 minutes.
I added the Cascade and let boil for the final 5 minutes.

I transferred the wort to my 5 gallon bucket and let sit overnight. I transferred the wort from the 5 gallon bucket to my 7 gallon bucket, and aerated for 30 minutes using an aquarium pump (all equipment sanitized in bleach). I let the head settle down, pitched the yeast and let sit at room temperature. Once the yeast started showing signs of activity I moved the bucket to my garage which was at a temperature of 54 degrees (f). After fermenting in the primary 1 week I transferred it to the secondary.
