Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)
Recipe Type: partial mash
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Pale Ale


This is a basic 1050 pale with dried habanero chilis added to the seconday for 7 days. It is a bit spicy on the back of the throat but not over powering. A great summer beer for those who like chili beers. Other peppers could be used depending on what is available. For this I used a 50,000 chili on the scoville scale and added one pepper per gallon.


  • 4 oz 60L American crystal malt
  • 7# light DME
  • 4 oz maltodextrin
  • 1 oz nugget hop
  • 1/2 oz Perle hop
  • 1 whrilfloc table
  • 1 oz Cascade hop
  • Wyeast 1056 American ale yeast
  • 5 dried habanero chilis
  • 3/4 cup priming sugar
