Remember first I am new to AG, so if my recipe looks to be all jacked up please remember that. I have a pale ale:
9lbs 12oz Pale Malt(2row)
2lbs 8oz Caramel/Crystal Malt-40
.75 oz warrior 60 min
.50 oz Amarillo 10 min
.50 oz Amarillo 5 min
Whirlfloc tab 15 min
Est OG 1.058
Est FG 1.014
Est ABV 5.7%
SRM of 11
Est efficiency of 72%
It seems simple therefore it probably is but can anyone tell me if my recipe is flawed?
That is way too much crystal. I would use about .5 lbs. Other than that it looks pretty good.
A lot of people are going to say drop the crystal to a lb or less. Replace it with more 2row, Munich, Vienna etc.
I would also add some dry hops, prob 1.5-2 oz.
Instead of using 2row use pale ale malt
and cut the crystal down to under 20%
So drop the 40 lower and add more 2 row to achieve my og
Right, I recommend pale ale malt cause
it will give the beer more of an ale character then 2row.
So all I changed was to now have 11 lbs Pale Ale Malt and only 11 oz of cry-40. Sound good?
What yeast do you plan on going with?
Im thinking WL001 California Ale
This should make a good beer
or at the very least it's starter recipe thet you can
fine tune and adjust as you go a long.
I say go for it!!
