Just a simple, single infusion mash at 155 degrees for 60 minutes. Batch sparge until wort is clear. Sparge with 170 degree water until wort volume reaches 6-6.5 gallons.

I add a tbsp of Gypsum preboil, but it is optional. Bring wort to a rolling boil. Complete the hop scedule, cool and put into the fermenter.

Dry hop with the last ounce of Simcoe (I prefer pellet hops in a hop ball) and pitch with Wyeast 1318 London III. Ferment to completion, keg(or bottle) drink and enjoy!
