Steeped the crushed grain in ~1 gallon of water at 155 ºF (68 ºC) for 30 minutes. Removed grains from the wort and rinsed with 1 quart (0.9 L) of hot water. Added ~1.5 gallons of water plus the liquid and dry malt extracts and bring to a boil.
Cooled the wort outside in snow for ~40 min, cooled easily to 75 ºF (24 ºC). Pitched yeast and aerated the wort heavily. Allow the beer to cool to 68 ºF (20 ºC). Hold at that temperature until fermentation is complete.
