Garbage Pale Ale
Okay, I have a few extra ingredients in my fridge that I was hoping to use up...so I thought I might brew up an IPA. Recipe for 5 gal extract with steeped grains.
Throw it in the pale ale
12 oz - Crystal 20L
8 oz - Crystal 60L
7 lbs - Extra Light DME
1 oz - Yakima Magnum @ 60
1/2 oz - Columbus @ 30
1 oz - Cascade @ 10
3/4 oz - Crystal @ 0
3/4 oz - Simcoe @ 0
And maybe an American or California ale yeast
What do you think...kinda a random assortment of hops. Any critiques/suggestions appreciated.
EDIT: I wound up using 1# C20L, 8oz C60L, 7# DME, and changed my hop bill as follows: 3/4oz Columbus @60, 1/4oz Columbus @30, and 1/2oz Crystal each @15, @10, @5, and @flameout (total Crystal 2 oz). Just racked to secondary yesterday (11/13) and was mighty tasty. The last time I used Columbus for bittering I went too low at 1/2 oz at 60 min; this time I decided to up it a bit...I'm anxious to see how it turns out!
