English style pale-ale
I adapted Charlie Papazian's Good Life pale-ale to a partial mash. I used Mt Hood hops instead of American Crystal, because the HBS didnt have Crystal.
When steeping the grains, the temp went way up, but I don't think that will be a huge problem.

English style ales usually use Fuggles,Kent Golding,Willamette hops,which are English in origin. Don't let the steeping water's temp go up more than,say,165F. When my wife steeped hers,I had her turn the heat down to keep the temp at 160F. To high,& you can get tannins from the grain husks,as I understand it.

Didn't know that, thanks. It spiked up to 160 so I turned the heat off and it slowly went down to 135.

It has been fermenting since 5/13 and it smells amazing.
