I use a water profile similar to Pilsen.
I mash in on this brew at 135 for 15 min
I raise the temp to appx 148 for 15 min
I raise to 155 until conversion is complete
Ferment at 65-68 for 10 days then transfer to secondary for 14 days. Bottle or Keg as normal.
This beer took about 3-4 weeks in the garage at cooler temps before it really got good. Now it is super mellow. I recommend letting this beer remain in cool temps as long as possible before serving. Cold filtration would probably make the beer ready in about 2 weeks. It is my cleanest tasting beer to date. Gotta love the Wyeast American ale II!
This beer is pretty solid as it stands. If you want a base recipe to begin with this is still a good place to be. Feel free to substitute the base 2 row for a pale ale malt to get a more rich malt character. You could also easily substitute any european hops into this recipe with good results as well as chinook, willamette, or mt hood. If you use hops with a different AA% be sure to adjust the 60 and 45 min additions.
Fermentation temp is critical. This beer will have plenty of flavor from the malt, don't let the yeast overwhelm it.
