American Pale Ale


When my daughter ws born last summer, I commemorated the event with a hoppy extract Pale Ale I named Diaper Pail Ale!

Turned out very nice and fruity, close to what I remembered from a cask conditioned Full Sail Amber at the Pilsener Room in Portland.

Maybe drop to 1 oz Nuggets at 45 to lower IBU a bit.

  • 2 oz. Nugget hops (11% AA)
