Do you like Anchor Steam™?

This is our recipe for the same beer style. We can't call it steam beer because Anchor Brewing Company™ has copyrighted that term.  Now that style of beer is called California Common Beer.  It's a special type of lager which is meant to be fermented at warmer temperatures. Like other lagers you can ferment it at cooler temperatures, but it will lose some of its character.  Temperatures between 65 and 72 degrees are ideal.  This beer has a brilliant amber color, medium-body, with nice full hop flavor and aroma throughout.


Premium Series recipe kits will arrive with a printed content list.  This is ideal for brewers who need detailed information for their log book or brewing software.  Includes all ingredients and detailed instructions.  Makes 5 gallons using normal homebrew equipment.
