Place 2 gallons of water in a brew pot and raise to 165 degrees. Place the cracked grains in the muslin bag and put it in the hot water. The temperature of the water should fall to approximately 155 degrees. Hold 155 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove the grains, add the malt extract, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Set the timer for 60 minutes. When the timer reads 45 minutes remaining, add the flavor hops in a muslin bag. When the timer runs out, remove the pot from the heat immediately.
Add 3 gallons of chilled water to a clean and sterilized fermenter. Strain the wort into the fermenter and add enough chilled water to bring the volume to 5¼ gallons. Add the yeast when the temperature falls below 80 degrees F.
Primary ferment should last 7 to 10 days. After 10 days, rack the beer into a second clean and sterile fermenter, and add the aroma hops. Wait 12 hours for the hops to become completely soaked, and then place in a cool place (50 - 55 degrees F) for 30 days. Bottle when clear.
