Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Pale Ale


This produced a wonderful beer, except that it was just too sweet for my likings. I shouldn't complain too much, all my friends thought it was great! I tried several variations of this, and all worked out well, but were too sweet for me. Several people suggested cutting back on the crystal and I may try that. I have also tried using a lager yeast to create a steam beer.


  • 1/2 pound, crystal malt
  • 3.3 pounds, unhopped amber extract
  • 3.3 pounds, unhopped light extract
  • 1-1/2 ounces, Northern Brewers hops (boil)
  • 1/4 ounce, Cascade hops (finish)
