Typical Analysis: 25+/-3 EBC (Colour), 21+/-2 EBU (Bitterness)
Dark amber in color and rich in flavor, this "big red brew" will give you a warming sensation all the way down. At around 8% ABV, it is the type of beer that we like to call a "Stay-at-Home" beer. Because it's so complex, give this brew about 6 months to condition. It's worth it.

Place both varieties of hop pellets into 2 separate hop socks tying them closed. Follow the instructions on the back of your Black Rock Lager can. Add hot water to your 2 cans of malt extract and 3 cups of honey. Put your hop sacks in and stir vigorously to mix well. Make volume up to 22.5 litres at a temperature between 18 to 25 degrees Celsius. The hop socks stay in the fermenter for the fermentation to infuse a phenomenal hop flavour.
Sprinkle yeast packets into fermenter and stir. Seal your fermenter. Ferment at a consistent temperature within the range stated above for approximately 10 - 14 days until a consistent hydrometer reading is achieved 2 days in a row.
