Irish Moss and boil for 60 minutes. With 20 minutes remaining in the boil add 1.0 oz. Summer hops. With 5 minutes remaining add 1.25 oz. Summer hops.

Strain the hot wort into a fermenter filled with 2 gallons of cold water top off to the 5.5 gallon mark. Add yeast when the temperature of your beer is less than 70°, and begin fermenting.
