Beer Style: American Pale Ale (10A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
Here is a Pete's Wicked Ale Clone recipe from Mother Earth News, Dec '94 or Jan '95 issue.
Here is what I would suggest:
Add grains to a grain bag, steep in 2 Gal water at 155F for 45 mins to 1 hr, stirring occasionally. Remove grains, add extract and bring to a boi l.
Total boil time 75 mins.
-Boil for 15 mins, then add bittering hops.
-Continue for 50 mins, then add aroma hops (10 mins before knockoff)
Cool to pitching temp, pitch yeast (build a starter for the yeast)
Add dry hops after fermentation has completed, so the escaping gas will not carry your hop aroma out of the airlock. I would probably ferment in primary for a week, rack to secondary and add the dry hops after activity had subsided. Others have suggested using primary only, just wait till all fermentation activity has subsided.
