Default All-Grain - Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale - All Grain

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Nottingham
Yeast Starter: Nope
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Nope
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.051
Final Gravity: 1.011
IBU: 39
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 Days at 68 degrees



This is my Haus Pale Ale. A very quaffable beer that is very easy to make using basic ingredients and a dry yeast.

Grain Bill
8 lbs. 2-Row Pale Malt
2 lbs. Vienna Malt
0.5 lb. Crystal 10L Malt

Mash
Single Infusion mash for 60 minutes at 152 degrees.
I batch sparge in a 10 gallon water cooler with a stainless braid manifold. Click here for great info on Batch Sparging.
Dough-in with 3.5 gallons of water. After 60 minutes, add 5 quarts of 175 degree water and begin vorlauf. My system only takes about 2 quarts before it clears up, then it's wide open to drain in the kettle. Have another 3.25 gallons of 175 degree water ready for the next batch sparge. You should then get 6.5 gallons to your kettle for the boil.

Mini Mash

You might be able to do a mini mash with 5 lbs. of light DME.

Heat 3.5 qts of water to ~168/169F in a pot.
Heat a gallon of water to ~170 in another pot.
Add 2lb. of Vienna and 1/2 lb. of Crystal 10L (crushed grains) to the pot with the 168/169F water and stir very throughly.
Put lid on that pot, placed in oven at 150F.
Let it sit for an hour.
Pour the water (now wort) into your brew pot through your strainer. Put grains back into pot.

Pour the 170F water into the pot where your grain is, stir throughly, let sit for 10 mins. Pour that wort into your brew pot through your strainer.

You'll get 50-60% efficiency with that partial mash method.

Add additional water, extract, and hops to the brew pot and proceed like usual.

Extract Version

Here's what I have converted for an Extract version. Vienna must be mashed, but Austin Homebrew sells Munich LME which should bring this pretty darn close to the All Grain version. Just steep your Crystal 10 L and do a full boil and follow the hop schedule.

6.5# Extra Pale LME
1.5# Munich LME
8 oz. Crystal 10L (steep)

Boil & Hops

1.0 oz Cascade 6.6% at 60 min.
0.5 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 30 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 15 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 5 min.

Chill to 70 to 75 degrees

Pitch with Nottingham Dry Yeast. No starter or hydration. Update! With the Nottingham shortage, Safale -05 is a great substitute and will make a great beer too. Very similar.

This ferments out very fast, so I will crash cool and keg after 1 week to 10 days. This recipe is calculated at 75% efficiency. I'm getting over 80% though with my Barley Crusher and my 10 gallon Rubbermaid cooler w/stainless braid MLT.

The beer drops very clear after sitting in the kegerator for a week and looks like this.



It's my Haus Ale because it turned out to be a beer that everyone likes. It's light, crisp, dry, and very tasty which means several trips to the tapper.

Sounds very good. I just bottled a very similar APA. Only difference was using a little less Vienna and using Columbus for bittering, Columbus + Cascade for flavor, and Cascade for aroma and dryhopping. I'm looking forward to it.

EdWort,I've gotta hand it to you,This is one of the easiest batches to brew,I'm now on the third keg. People that've tasted this one keep coming back for more.
I use Cascade pellets at the specified times and also at recipe request,I don't convert for weight(hop volume) and this one turns out great every time.
I believe my efficiency is a bit low and am looking into "rolling my own" Thanks. Shane

Thanks. That was my goal. A very drinkable beer, easy to make, and appeals to a large range of people. Time to brew some this weekend!

I brewed a (modified) batch also. Figured I'd give it a try. I can always share it if it doesn't suit me.

This looks like a great recipe. I wonder if using gleneagle's maris otter and munich instead of 2-row and vienna would eff it up too much...

Hey, Ed, did you adjust your BC rollers from the factory crush settings? Just curious. I've used mine several times and I'm getting mid-70's efficiency.

Hmm, I think this will be my next brew. Quick turn-around sounds like a good plan. Thanks for sharing!

Also, I adjusted my barley crusher from factory setting. I increased the gap slightly. The factory crusy was too fine in my opinion. I got grain in the wort no matter how much I vourlofed. My efficiency also went up with a bit courser crush.

I adjusted my Barley Crusher in the same manner. My settings went from 12 O'clock to 1 O'clock and life is good.

Thanks. Using MO and Munich would make a different beer. The munich malt would make it much more heavier and maltier. It would also make a darker beer going from 4L to 10L in color.

The MO would not make much of a difference other than increasing the price of the batch.

My goal in devising this recipe was to make a beer that was very drinkable, easy to make, while using the fewest, yet most cost effective ingredients; hence dry yeast, only one hop type, mostly 2 row Pale, etc.

I'm sure you would make a good beer, but it would be darker & maltier with the Munich.
