Just got done with this one earlier today. Ended up 3 points above my predicted SG Should be a fantastic tailgating brew. Pics and tasting notes to follow.

Ended up dry hopping with two ounces instead of one, bottling on Friday. I will post pics of the hydrometer reading sample and taste notes.

Beautiful golden copper color. Hit 1.010 which is lower than expected but not unwelcomed.

Tastes very citrusy. Malt balances well touch of sweetness with toasted beady tones. Bitterness is very clean and subtle with a crispness at the end. Nice mineral taste from the water chemistry.

I like ahtanum in light ales that showcase the 'lightness' of the flavor. I like to pair with palisades (lightly) to give pale ales a strong floral with citrus aroma. I think ahtanum is underused in homebrewing. Kudos to you for giving it a go!

I like your water build information. I would like to know how you build water for a less hop forward lighter beer. Do you have a template for something more malty that isn't a porter or stout?

Maybe I should give this hop another go. Last time I tried it I wasn't overly pleased with the characteristics. But it could have been an issue with the grain bill as it was when I was still trying to nail down my standard recipe for a pale. I've heard enough good things about it that it sounds like I should give it a second chance.

Any suggested hops to pair with it? I saw someone mention Palisades (a hop I know I'm not overly fond of), but was wondering if anyone else had some pairing suggestions.

Generally Chlorides will let the maltiness shine through, combo that with a yeast that doesn't accentuate the hoppiness and youre golden. A hoppy brew is usually 4-1 sulfur to chlorides, so make that 2-1 and it should be a nice malt forward brew.

Honestly i've been a big user of big oily, dank, musky hops until now. After i started using sterling i have gained an appreciation for the lighter hops in life
This was merely a taste from the fermenter, i assume the taste will only get better from here. I really enjoy this grain bill, perfect sweetness and maltiness with slight toastines. I will be conducting an all galaxy hopped pale with this grain bill in the future.

I've used Ahtanum to finish classic pale ales but blended Palisade's floral character with Ahtahnum's citrus character in this one:

Ingredients Amount Item Type % or IBU
10 lbs Pale Ale Malt (Breiss) (4.0 SRM) Grain 86.96 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 13.04 %
0.40 oz Columbus - HOH [14.00 %] (60 min) Hops 18.2 IBU
0.75 oz Ahtanum - HOH [4.50 %] (20 min) Hops 6.6 IBU
0.75 oz Palisades - HOH [8.00 %] (20 min) Hops 11.8 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade - HOH [4.70 %] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
0.75 oz Ahtanum - HOH [4.50 %] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
0.25 oz Palisades - HOH [8.00 %] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
1 Pkgs Dry English Ale (White Labs #WLP007) Yeast-Ale

Some people liked the floral, some didn't. I thought it was pretty interesting and elegant.

Thats alot of crystal! No complaints of the sweetness? I love palisade though, nice blend with the ahtanum, maybe a fruitier hop like crystal and a spicy hop like sterling may blend well with this hop to complete the overall hop taste experience. Interesting use of columbus, in my experience it has been a very dank hop, id use maybe horizon or another low Co-Humulone hop to ensure a clean bitterness as not to interfere with the delicateness of the other hops. I do love me some columbus/tomahawk/zeus though!
