All hops were pellet hops.

Racked to tertiary for a few days after dry hopping.

*I'd planned on dry hopping for a week with this, but the pellet hops made such a mess I tried to wait them out, and eventually used the tertiary to get the beer away from the hoppy sludge. On rebrewing, I'll be going with one week, but since this was how it was done in the batch that I entered in the comp, I posted the recipe as is.

Primed with 5oz of corn sugar.

I've always wondered what that much honey malt would do in a APA or even IPA... I guess it wins competitions!

Hey Cat - What temp did you ferment the pacman at? I did some at 60F for a wheat and it was great.

I did the tub of water and frozen bottles method, so it wasn't exact, but I kept it in the mid 60's. Love those pacmans!

I'm amazing at how well it works. During a hot spell this summer it was in the 90's and between the ice bath and keeping it in a small bathroom with the door closed and exhaust fan running, I had my beer under 70F. I didn't even use the wet t-shirt and fan method with it.

I'll be brewing this one up sometime in the next couple weeks. I'm making a mirror pond clone first as described on "Can You Brew It?" then it's on to this. I'll be converting to AG but the only other change I'll make is using Denny's Favorite 50 yeast in place of the pacman. Shouldn't make too much difference. I've got a ton of amarillo and cascades just begging to make some APAs. What's the body like on the beer? I'm thinking about fermenting at 152 but may drop it to 150 if you think a thinner mouthfeel would be better.

Not brag or anything but... Mirror Pond was the favorite pale ale of a friend of mine I work with. I gave him a couple bottles of this and he said that he doesn't like Mirror Pond as much now.

I'll be sure to let you know my preference when they're both kegged and carbed! This is gonna be my first experience with honey malt. I'm kind of excited!

I'm gonna hafta brew it again soon. I just looked and I'm down to a 6-pack of regular bottles and three stubbys. It's so sad when you see the end near.

I'm not sure if I'll brew it quite this way next time though. The dry hop schedule ended up kind of convoluted on accident. But... that's the way it was brewed so that's how I posted the recipe, mistakes and all.
