Default Ballast Point Yellow Tail Pale Ale Recipe???

Wondering if anyone has a extract or partial mash recipe for this beer?

It is a wonderful Kolsch style beer, one of the best I have had. If you are ever in the San Diego area go check them out. Here in MA we are just starting to see Ballast Point in bottles.

Anyway if anyone has a recipe for this beer please let me know.

Thanks

I can get Ballast Point in a couple places around me. Can't help ya with the recipe, but their IPA is incredible. I saw a double IPA on the shelf, but haven't picked it up yet. It's an hour drive to that store.

Having heard quite a bit about Ballast Point, but never actually having tried one, I picked up a bomber of this exact beer a while back at BevMo. Let me just say, I am now a big fan!

Ok, I just spoke to the guys at Ballast. They said the Kolsch recipe posted online is going to get you about 95% of the way there. The only difference is that they use a special kind of kolsch yeast that is not available.

Kolsch (Golden Ale)
6 # pale malt extract
1# wheat malt extract
1/2# 10 L crystal
1 oz Northern Brewer (6.9%) 60 min
1 oz Tettnanger 10 min
1 oz Tettnanger 2 min
Ferment with W.L. California Ale Yeast

If you brew it, post back and let us know what you think.

If it was me....I'd use a kolsch yeast instead of the cal ale yeast. It would probably get you closer to Yellow Tail and the Kolsch style in general.

I talked to a guy at Home Brew Mart who said he used about 0.5% acidulated malt in that recipe to tweak the mash pH for our lovely San Diego water.

I don't know if it has a flavor impact or even makes an appreciable difference in the wort, but any data is good data...
