Brewing a Golden Ale

A 11-gallon batch of fresh home-brewed ale makes for a long day.  Despite a stuck sparge, in about eight hours I was able to transfer 10 gallons of chilled wort into the 45,000-milliliter, glass-carboy fermenter.

This high-gravity batch was mashed from 21 pounds of grains and 1 pound of candy sugar.  The final gravity after boil was 0.065–a little high, so added a gallon of fresh bottled water for topping the carboy up.  This beer should finish at a nice 6-percent ABV drinkable product.
