Default Recipe feedback please

Hi all,
Been a while since I have posted anything, but I have been reading and brewing for the last year. I have made a few Extract kits, and have moved into All Grain BBIAB. Loving it.
This is my first attempt at trying to create a clone, and I would love feedback.
This is an attempt to clone Moylans Tipperary Pale Ale. I am basing my choices for the grains and hops on the spec sheet for this beer (http://www.moylans.com/site/pages/ar...y-Pale-Ale.pdf).
I plugged everything in to BeerSmith and adjusted until the numbers looked right, and it looked good to me. How does it look to you though?


Thanks,
Leonard

Default Pale Ale recipe

I'm not familiar with this beer, so cannot comment on its clone'ness.

I was wondering about the 9.0 gal boil? Even for 90 minute boils, that seems a bit more than I would expect for a 5.5 gal in the fermenter batch. Just wondering if you have tuned your Beersmith for your own equipment (dead space & evaporation rate) or just used the defaults. Just something to check.

The grains look good to me for a Pale Ale, although I've never used the Acid Malt before. I know its used to lower mash pH when you have really alkaline water, but I have no idea if that is too much or too little, etc. I also read that it can be used to add some 'sour' character to a beer. Again, not real sure about that malt in there...

Good luck!

Thanks. I will check my equipment setting in beersmith. The acid malt may be a good addition, or a bad one. I guess the only real way to tell will be to brew it.

Ok, I adjusted Beersmith, and it the numbers are looking more realistic.
