Combine the grain bill and mash at 160 degrees for 60 mins. Try not to let the temperature drop, we need to hold the higher temperature so the maltiness doesn't get over powered by the Centennial hops.

Batch sparge until wort clears. Sparge with 170 degree water until you collect 6.5 gallons of wort. Before boiling add 3lbs Briess Liquid Amber extract. Bring to a boil and complete the hop addition.

Cool to 65 degrees as quickly as possible and pitch with Wyeast 2112 California Lager.

Try to keep it in the 60-65 degree range for fermentation. Rack to glass carboy when bubbling slows.

*NOTE feel free to substitute the liquid extract with base malt and a little more crystal malt. My mash efficiency drops horribly if I go above the listed grain bill.*
