Default Dude's "Lake Walk" Pale Ale

He brought his latest over the the house the other day, and it rocks!

Great hop flavor/aroma and very clean. It's light bodied and doesn't have much malt sweetness, setting it apart from other pale ales. I think it's a good "summer" beer for us hopheads. Something along the lines of Anchor Liberty with less aftertaste.

Can't wait to try the AG version.

Thanks very much!
Its funny you say that--I was shooting for a cross between a SNPA and a Liberty Ale. Now that I've gotten some pints off that keg--its clearing up nicely. The first few were cloudy but it looks nice now.
I'm now a HUGE fan of the WLP001 (White Labs) yeast.
After I do the next batch of the belgian one I'm experimenting with, I'm gonna do the first AG batch of Lake Walk. I don't think I'm going to change much with the recipe.
I appreciate the good words.
I'm drinking one now. 8:00 in the morning! LOL....

Okay, ORRELSE - Now you've GOT to please post the recipe on the recipe area! I'm planning to get some of that WLP001 and try it out. I just haven't decided on a recipe. This one sounds good!

Here ya go....

I think there are 3 critical keys to this recipe:

1. The TOASTED 2 row. Toast regular 2-row grain in a 175 deg. oven for 15-30 mins. Then toast it at 275 deg. for an additional 30 mins. I left the oven door open during this process. It will make your house smell like heaven.
2. Fermentation temp. Keep it at 68-70 if possible. this will prevent the "fruity" effects of the yeast. I think this turned out really clean.
3. Use DME vs. LME.

Also, with age, the hops will mellow. This has a strong bite at first but I can tell after a few weeks it is already mellowing.

Thanks! Looks easy enough and most all of the ingredients, I already have on hand. I think I'll try this weekend after next!

Default An Update...

Okay, I did the AG version of this recipe myself awhile back. It was only my second AG and, man, did it turn out great! I used White Labs WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast because I had it on hand. It probably makes my version a bit less sweet than if I had used the WLP001. Still, this stuff kicks butt! I will definitely brew it again soon.

My new girlfriend is normally a Bud drinker. I gave her one of these last weekend. Her first reaction was "Wow, this has some kick to it!" But after finishing the first one, she didn't want to switch to anything else and she stuck with it all afternoon!

Cool. Another one converted to homebrew!
So did you end up doing the bittering hops with Perle or NB? Did oyu toast grains? To me, the toasted grains are the key in that recipe. I can really taste a difference.

Oh, yeah - forgot to mention that I went with Perle hops. And yes, I toasted the grains! Did you ever make it without toasting? Was just wondering how it affected the taste. As for me, I won't mess with success! I'll toast them when I make this again. It's so easy to do.

I smoked about two pounds of Maris Otter 2-row on my smoker last weekend for use in my Scotch Ale and that was easy, too! It just didn't make my kitchen smell nice like the toasting did!

So Rhoobarb....can you post the recipe you went with? I'm going to do this batch Friday. I'd be interested to see the changes you made. I'm all about improving this sucker.
