Tasmanian Cascades


You will need:

  • 1x Mangrove Jack’s Craft Series Golden Lager                                                             
  • 1kg Ultra Brew
  • 1x Lager/Pilsner Grain Pack
  • 15g Cascade Hops
  • 1 MJ M84 Bohemian Lager or MJ Kit yeast
  • A crisp, clean, refreshing Tasmanian lager






  1. In advance of preparing recipe, chill 5-10 litres of water in the fridge.*
  2. Steep Lager/Pilsner grain pack in a bowl with 1 litre of hot tap water for 30 minutes.
  3. Strain the grain through a sieve into a large saucepan. Rinse grains with a further 500ml of hot water and collect in saucepan as well. Discard the grains.
  4. Bring grain wort to the boil, turn off heat and add the Cascade hops. Steep for 5 mins.
  5. Add the MJ Craft Series Golden Lager satchel and Ultra Brew and contents of the saucepan to your fermenter, and mix well.
  6. Top up to 23L using chilled and cold water to reach a starting temperature of 12°C if using MJ

Bohemian Lager yeast, or 20°C if using the MJ kit yeast. Stir vigorously to aerate the wort.

  1. If you have a temperature controlled brewing fridge, add the MJ Bohemian Lager yeast and dry enzyme, ferment as close as possible to 12°C. If you don’t have a temperature controlled brewing fridge use the yeast in the MJ Golden Lager pouch, and ferment as close as possible to 20°C **.  
  2. Bottle or keg beer when gravity is consistent over two days.



* Use sanitised containers with lids.  Use chilled water to reach pitching temperature and add yeast immediately.


** Maintain a cool even temperature in the fermenter.  Place the fermenter in a tray and wrap it in a blanket with an end in a container of water.  Placing the fermenter on a concrete slab can also help to keep the temperature constant.  Use a Brewers Choice Brewing Thermostat and an old fridge for optimum brewing conditions all year round
