I had been looking for a recipe for Odell's 5 barrel pale ale, with no luck. However, I did stumble across this old thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/looking-clone-17800/#post169453
and decided between that and the description on Odell's site coming up with a tasty recipe. However, I am still new at brewing and don't really know how to create a recipe so I could use some help/advice.
Here is what I am working with.
From the old thread:
Here is the list of ingrdients for 5 Barrel:
Malts: Pale, ESB, Crystal, and Munich
Bittering Hop: Cascade
Finishing Hops: Fuggles, First Gold, Glacier, Willammette, and Centennial.
We use whole flower hops in the hop back and and for dry hopping 5 Barrel.
The yeast is a top-fermenting ale yeast.
From Odell's website:
"The result, our delectable 5 Barrel Pale Ale, hopped in 8 stages with 6 different hops"
"The distinctive hop character of our 5 Barrel Pale Ale is due to the extraction of essential oils from select hops. We treat 5 Barrel Pale Ale to an infusion of fresh whole hop flowers in the Hop Back and the Fermentor, as well as four hop additions during the kettle boil. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively flavor and aroma.
5.2% Alcohol By Volume 36 IBUs"
I won't be able to use a hopback with my setup, so I am just went ahead and tried my best to create something I think might work in Beersmith. Here is what I have so far.
