It seems like saaz is reserved for lagers only. I think in all my searches I've only seen one ale recipe that uses it. Any particular reason for this?
I was thinking I could probably make something really light and refreshing, somewhere in the pale ale / light lager range, using some saaz, and US-56 yeast. Anyone ever try recipe like that or have some suggestions?
I'm thinking along the lines of:
10 Lbs 2 row
.5- 1 Lb 20L crystal
1 oz Saaz (60 min)
.5 oz Saaz (15 min)
.5 oz Saaz (5 min)
What do you guys think?
