Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)

American Pale Ale


This is a pale ale recipe I used for my class. I used M&F pale extract and grains were for demonstration more than flavor. I suggest doubling grain quantities if you want to get something out of them.


  • 6.6 pounds, light, unhopped malt extract
  • 5 pounds, light dry malt extract
  • 2 cups, corn sugar
  • 3/4 cup, medium crystal malt
  • 1/4 cup, black patent malt
  • 3-3/4 ounce, Cascade hops pellets (4.4 alpha)
  • 1-1/5 ounce, Willamette hops pellets (4.0 alpha)
  • Whitbread ale yeast

This is a 10-gallon recipe; cut ingredients in half for 5 gallons. Steep grains in a mesh bag until water reaches boiling. Remove grains. Follow standard extract brewing process, adding extract and Cascade hops. I boiled the wort in an 8-gallon pot and added 4 gallons of cold water. Pitch yeast at about 80 degrees. I fermented this in a 20-gallon open container for 4 days, then racked to glass carboys for 24 days.
