Directions
Mash the grains at 152° F (67° C) for 60 minutes or until starch conversion is finished. Mash out at 170° F (77° C) and sparge. Collect 5.78 gallons (22 L) of runoff and bring everything to a rolling boil. Drop in your hops as directed in the recipe. After a 60 minute boil, chill the wort down to 67° F (19° C) and transfer to your primary fermenter. Pitch your yeast, whether it be a yeast starter, liquid or dry yeast and aerate well. Ferment at 68° F (20° C) for 7 days or until fermentation activity subsides, then rack to secondary and add cranberry, orange extract and pectic enzyme for 7 more days.
