Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5.95 US gallons

American Pale Ale
Beer Color


After it was on tap and near the end the Diacytel cleared and this beer really shined through. It was simple BUT the mash made it complex. Perfect color. Head was more than one probably wants....a 16 glass would stand 3 inches for about 2-3 minutes before it would settle to a perfect look. Definately needs longer lagering times with S-23
