Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 6 US gallons

American Pale Ale
Beer Color


This beer turned out pretty good. The taste is right where I wanted it to be. It might benefit from a slightly higher hop addition. If I do that for the next batch, make sure that the IBUs stay in the range for an American Pale Ale according to the BJCP guidelines. On this batch, I miscalculated the amount of corn sugar to add for raising the OG by not correcting the preboil gravity for temperature. Consequently I added too much. 4 pounds in total. The resultant effect was to bring the alcohol level up so high (~8.4%) - that it was not in line with the BJCP guidelines for abv for an APA.
