I brewed an impromptu batch of ale a few weeks ago when I was stuck at home, sick with a cold. I was zooted on cold medicine and feeling fancy free, so I decided to basically take random stuff from the "extra ingredients box" and just brew it. So....I ended up with this recipe:
.4 lbs. Crystal Malt 120°L
2.4 lbs. Alexanders Pale Liquid
2.4 lbs. Alexanders Wheat Liquid
.75 oz. Northern Brewer (Pellets, 8.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.5 oz. Crystal (Pellets, 3.25 %AA) boiled 20 min.
.25 oz. Northern Brewer (Pellets, 8.00 %AA) boiled 20 min.
.5 oz. Crystal (Pellets, 3.25 %AA) boiled 2 min.
Yeast : White Labs WLP002 English Ale
I brewed the wort as usually, except I added the wheat LME with 25 min left in the boil. I pitched it onto a FAT yeast cake from a previous ESB and it fermented through, at ~65 degrees, in about 2 days. Left it in primary for 2 weeks total and bottled as usual. After further thought, I was not very enthusiastic about how it would turn out....
...But it's tasty! I had the first one last night and literally did a double take at the pint before me (as well as a mental, "whatchoo talkin' bout Willis?!").
So does anybody have an opinion on what "style" this might fall into?
