Default A Mistake -- but what to call it?

I was inspired by a thread last week to come up with a "House" ale. So I did! It was an American-style Pale Ale, looked a little something like this:

Somewhere in the neighborhood of OG:1.053, 44 IBU's, and 5.5 SRM.

7.0# 2-row Pale
2.0# Vienna
1.0# Carapils
0.5# Biscuit
0.5# Torrefied Wheat

0.5oz N. Brewer pellet (11.2%) 60m
0.5oz Cascade pellet (7.5%) 15m
0.5oz EK Golding pellet (6.9%) 15m
1.0oz Cascade pellet (7.5%) 5m
1.0oz EK Golding pellet (6.9%) 5m
0.5oz Cascade pellet (7.5%) 0m
0.5oz EK Golding pellet (6.9%) 0m
1.0oz Cascade whole Dry
1.0oz EK Golding whole Dry

WLP001 CA Ale

Well, when I received my grains, I discovered that I told the clerk VICTORY instead of VIENNA. TWO POUNDS!! So what do we have, boys and girls? Nut Pale Ale? And is it going to convert itself?

Default You are fine

I think you will be fine except that it will not be exactly what you are looking for. You will end up with a very nutty tasting pale ale. I would mash lower at 150 and maybe up the ibu's. I brewed a pale ale with similar hops and did not like the combo of EKG and cascade because the cascade seemed to dominate. I love EKG but the american citrus hops just over power the flavor of ekg.

It could be a good experiment. Brew this one and then brew one with the exact same grain bill and just add cascade and then do another one with just ekg. It will give a great example of what each hop can do. Just my .02 cents.

I do want the citrusy American hops to stand out.... American Pale, after all

BUT... I love the aroma of the EKGs too... I ended up buying 2 oz of whole EKGs... maybe I could cut out the dry Cascades and just dry hop with 2 oz of EKG's. Yeah, that sounds like it might work.

Must be some nutty hopped-up brown american you can name this after.

One part Cascades and 2 parts EKG makes a nice combo for dry hopping.

Or....

"If I was going to brew a beer..." OJ Simpson Brown Ale.

There seems to be more than one twist to this one.
