Default All-Grain - Bass & Co, Pale Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Irish Ale
Yeast Starter: Humongo from my last Stout
Batch Size (Gallons): 11
Original Gravity: 1.055
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 32.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 70
Color: 9.1
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 Days at 68 degrees
Additional Fermentation: Keg conditioned for as long as I can hold out...
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 Days at 68 degrees

I know the Cascade is a little out of place here, but dammit, I love Cascade hops. I'll offset the citrus of the cascade with the addition of 1lb of honey malt and mash at 156-157 to get a maltier profile.

With a gravity of 55 and an IBU of 32.4, I'm staying right in line with the gravity/hops ratio.

Bass Pale Ale, Bass Clone, Bass Pale Ale Recipe,

Batch Size: 11.00 gal
Boil Size: 12.59 gal
Estimated OG: 1.055 SG
Estimated Color: 9.1 SRM

Estimated IBU: 32.4 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.0 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes


INGREDIENTS:
15.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
5.00 lb Corn, Flaked (1.3 SRM)
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Honey Malt (25.0 SRM)
1.5 Oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)

2.00 oz Northern Brewer [8.50%] (60 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50%] (30 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50%] (15 min)

Irish Ale (Wyeast Labs #1084)

[EDIT] – Tasting Notes: I was extremely pleased with the way this turned out. A very smooth beer with good creamy head and nice malt flavor. I did a side by side with the bottled version and I can say mine had a much smoother taste and mouthfeel. I think the bottlers tend to over carbonate their beer for an American audience. I had a friend over who has very…shall we say…sensitive taste buds (adds water to his decaf coffee) and he absolutely loved the taste. He described it as very flavorful, but very easy to drink.

This turned out at about 5.4%, a little higher than I wanted, but that is what gives the beer it’s fuller malt taste.

Very good…very smooth…and well balanced hop bitterness. I varied from the original recipe just a bit by adding late addition cascade and I think that gave it a nice “refreshing” feel.

If you’re looking for a brown ale that is smooth, malty and refreshing at the same time, I highly recommend it.



I've never had a Bass Ale but...what the hey...I gotta brew something this weekend. Here's the grain bill, ready for the soak.

That would do just fine.

Get yourself a trial version of BeerSmith and your brewing will take on a whole new dimension.

A few times...yes.

This was a very young version for both beers. Still had chill haze.

I'm doing this recipe on Sunday. I've never used the flaked corn before. Is there any benefit to running the corn through my mill along with the grain or should I just put it in the mash as-is?

Flaked corn looks like yellow oatmeal. No need to do anything but add it to the grist.

Thanks BM! I've done several of your recipes and they've all been great, so I'm really looking forward to this one as well.
