IBU’s = 36-38 (Similiar to Ebenezer)

Increase the Perle hops to 2 ounces, and up your IBU's to around 55 which is similiar to Jubelale!

This recipe allows you to clone 2 different winter warmers, depending on how much of the Perle bittering hops you use. Use 1 ounce, and the beer is more balanced between malt and hops. Use 2 ounces of the perle for bittering, and now your beer will have a higher level of hop bitterness, and be similiar to Jubelale from Deschutes Brewery.


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 sugar. Return to a boil, then add boiling hops and boil for 60 minutes. Add Irish Moss for last 45 minutes of boil. Add finishing hops for last 3 minutes of the boil. Then add remainder of malt syrup and 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 5½ gallon mark. Add yeast when beer is less than 78°, and ferment and bottle as ususal.
