Default tweaked pale ale recipe

So I tweaked the pale ale recipe I used from my last post by adding more pale malt and using buckwheat. The buckwheat i used as specialty malts because i have noted it makes nice crystal malts. I added about 3 oz of a buckwheat chocolate malt I made for s***s and giggles. The OG came out to 1.043 and began fermenting withing a few hours of adding my 1000ml starter.

11 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Millet malt
4.0 oz Buckwheat Chocolate Malt
3 lbs Buckwheat crystal malt
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent
1.00 oz Northdown
1.0 pkg SafAle English Ale Fermentis #S-04
2.50 tsp Amylase Enzyme (Mash 1.5 hours)
1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil)

it's still a bit fresh with a strong buckwheat smell and taste but it turned out nice. I cold crashed it at 35 F for 4 days and then raised it up to 40 F for about 2 more and it ended with a nice sweet flavor upfront and a caramel after taste with a hint of hops added in. it has great head retention and pours nicely but is still left with a hazed look.



from 1.043 it fermented down to about 1.012 at 65 F

All of my partial mashes have been hazy just after carbonation, but cleared up nicely after sitting in the keg at serving temp for a couple more weeks. Flavor seemed to improve dramatically over that period also. Has that been your experience with your all grain batches?

Looks like a good recipe. I have used cascade and E.K.Goldings but not northdown, do you use northdown a lot and like it?

I have used both and I have had good experience with both. I think you can purchase in smaller quantities with Grouse.
