Note: This recipe requires a large dose of yeast; use a 1-gallon (3.8 L) starter or pitch slurry from a previous batch.
Steep grains in 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water at 150F (66 C) for 30 minutes, raise temperature to 170F (77 C) then strain and sparge with 1/2 gallon (1.9 L) of hot water. Add an additional gallon (3.8 L) of water then stir in extract and bring to a boil. Total boil time is 60 minutes. Add hops according to the recipe. After 60 minute boil, strain into a fermenter with enough cold water to make 5.5 gallons (21 L). Pitch yeast when temperature drops below 55F (13 C). Ferment at 50F (10 C) for two weeks, raise temperature to 60F (16 C) for 2 days, and then rack to secondary and lager at 35F (2 C) for 4 - 6 weeks.
