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

American Pale Ale
Beer Color


Mash at 66 C or 151 F. This beer is extremely popular to a wide range of palates and is a robust recipe. For example, the grain and hop bill can easily be reduced by well over 25% and still produce a delcious beer. Similiarly, the fermentation temperature can be increased to as high as 22C with little risk. Source: Nick Boardman

I brewed this beer about 8 weeks ago and am just about at the end of it in my keg sorry to say . I brew about 4 different IPA.s and this one is close to the top. Bitterness was good, good mouth feel, good color, nice lingering flavor.
Brew and enjoy
