Just to add some pics to the thread -- here is my mini-mash batch. OG and FG were spot on. The first pic is right after entering the primary (stayed there for 7 days), the second pic is 20 hours after racking to secondary.

I've drank 3 bottles over the past few days -- wasn't supposed to taste until a week from now but I couldn't resist.

Overall a very good beer. Showcases the Calypso hops nicely with notes of pears and apples. Perhaps a hair too bitter -- it drinks like a weaker American IPA. Either backoff the hops just a tad or balance it with some more malt. I also used Notty yeast, in hindsight I really wish I would have gone liquid as it would have had a little more character from the yeasties instead of the clean Notty.

Almost a month after brewing the all grain kit (with the new recipe) I finally kegged this American pale ale. I cold crashed it for 10 days at 39f (work happens). It came out quite clear from the first pour. Nice white lasting head. Very little aroma other than subtle (but obvious) fruity pear and apple notes. The aroma is completely unique (as is the taste). This fruitiness is nothing like those produced by esters or phenols. Taste is mildly bitter and probably on the low end of APAs. There is some of that unique apple and pear flavor. Very drinkable. Mine rang in at almost 6pct abv. I like it and think others will too but it is very unique.
