Steep crushed malted grain in 2 gallons of 150° water (tap water is about 130°) for 30 minutes. Don’t fret the temp too much, relax. Remove the grain from the hot water with a strainer, then bring water to a boil. When boiling starts, remove pot from burner and add 1 cup Malt powder. Return to a boil, then add boiling hops and Irish Moss and boil for 60 minutes. Boil dry malt extract for the last 10 minutes of the boil to dissolve, then add remainder of dry malt extract and stir to mix, wait 10 minutes to sanitize. Fill your sanitized carboy with 2 gallons of cold water. Strain the hot wort into the carboy and top off to the 5.5 gallon mark. Add yeast when beer is less than 78°, and ferment and bottle as usual.
