Personally if I forgot to add the final hops I would dry hop it.

Don't throw out your used packets of yeast. Keep them for the lot# and expiry date.

I meant to keep the packets, but accidentally threw them away. I ordered the kit from Bewmaster's Warehouse. So they traveled all the way from GA-CA in a hot FedEx truck. Even with an ice pack I am sure that the transit at this time of year was too much.

The first packet was a dud. I added a second and after 12-15 hours I got a small amount of activity. So this second packet must be doing the trick.

I must say though, when I opened up the bucket to add the second yeast, it smelt delightful. The best smelling batch I have made thus far.

I'm going to try this for a 3rd time now, but this time I'll use german pilsner malt and amarillo hops. I'll let you know how it turns out!

I don't mean to single out this poster, but there are a ton of these types of comments here. I'm pretty new to this hobby myself, so I'm curious: Doesn't making changes like this, make it an entirely different beer? I mean, it doesn't even seem like it would resemble the original recipe, would it? For the record though, I have yet to make a recipe exactly as described.

Similar citrusy hop with a different base malt. I actually have no experience with pilsner malt, but if the vienna and citrus flavors come out I expect it to taste pretty similar.

Yep, sure does. Changing a mash temp or hop time makes it a new beer, but that's the great thing about homebrewing.

It does work best to try the recipe as written first and then make your changes one thing at a time so you can see what each changes does to a beer.

Well I brewed another batch a week ago. I used all the ingredients as listed and added 4 oz. of honey malt. I plan on checking it today to see if it's finished, although I will probably wait until next weekend to bottle it. An extra week only seems to make it better. I just loves me some Haus Pale Ale.

I only have a 4 gallon pot, so how would the hop schedule need to be changed to facilitate a 2-3 gallon boil? Would I need to alter any other aspects of the recipe?
