Beer Style: American Pale Ale (10A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Pale Ale
Beer Color

Description:

“‘Summer Ale’ is not a beer style, but a concept. To me, anything which is brisk, light, and drinkable but still interesting enough to work with summer foods can be a ‘summer ale.’ It shouldn’t be too strong, because you want to drink plenty of them and still be able to catch a Frisbee.”

Ingredients:

  • 6 lb. 5 oz. (2.9 kg) British pale ale malt
  • 2 lb. 11 oz. (1.2 kg) German Pilsner malt
  • 3.8 AAU Cascade hops (60 mins) (0.75 oz./21 g of 5% alpha acids)
  • 3.8 AAU Cascade hops (30 mins) (0.75 oz./21 g of 5% alpha acids)
  • 3.8 AAU Cascade hops (0 mins) (0.75 oz./21 g of 5% alpha acids)
  • 0.88 oz. (25 g) Amarillo hops (dry hop) Nottingham ale yeast
