Steep the milled grains in 2-3 L water at 67 degrees C for 1 hour.  Remove the grains then Sparge (pour hot water around 75 degrees C) with 3L hot water through those grains to flush out any extra fermentables.  Combine the wort (tea from the grains) and the liquid from the sparge process and bring this to the boil to sterilise the liquid.

Boil for 30 min then cool to 80 degrees C.  Add steeping hops and leave for 15 minutes before crash cooling in a sink of cold water.  Add contents to your fermenter then add in the 2 cans of liquid malt. Stir well then top up to 23L.  Aim for 18-22 degrees C before pitching your yeast.

Dry hop on day 4 of the fermentation and leave a further 4 days before bottling (FG should be consistant around 1.012)
