Yeah no prob.

I plugged in 60L too, but that can add a fruity sweetness (not unpleasant, but wrong for this style), but you work get almost 10 srm while the 40 will get ya 7 and change, where I like my pales.

Boil Size: 4 gallons
Boil Time: 60 minutes
Efficiency: 65%


4.5 lbs American Pale 2-row
1 lb Vienna
0.5 lb Crystal 10L

.5 oz Cascade @ 60 minutes
.25 oz Cascade @ 30 minutes
.25 oz Cascade @ 15 minutes
.25 oz Cascade @ 5 minutes


Mash at 152, pitch rehydrated nottingham at 68.

Brewersfriend gives me the following numbers on it:

1.048 OG, 1.011 FG, 4.84 ABV, 43.59 IBU, 4.92 SRM


Am I missing anything in this conversion that shouldn't work, or someplace I should tweak? (Was thinking maybe a little more 10L, to get over 5 SRM, and into the American Pale Ale style?)
Here's the recipe scaled for 3.5 gallons. It's for 70% efficiency - I check pre-boil gravity and remove some wort/replace with water if the mash efficiency is high. I'd use 75% next time (multiply my grain weights by 0.9333), no change to hops, maybe 154F mash.

Brewed my frist all grain Hause Pale Ale in my recently completed HERMS system yesterday.

Everything went really well, but I have a few questions if anyone can help me.

1) The dough-in water specified is 11 liters. When I put 11 liters into the grains it barely made the the grains damp - landed up with about 16 liters.

2) My OG came out at 1,059, not the 1.050 as per recipe. This seems a little high ? Maybe I miss measured the grains which could explain the extra dough - in water required as well as the higher OG.

3) Finally, when it came to aerating the wort, the aquarium pump would not work so I shook the fermenter quite violently for about 5 minutes. Can I re-aerate the wort with a new aeration pump tonight or will this result in off flavours ? It is bubbling away quite nicely as we speak but I'm scared that it will use up all the available oxygen too quickly and spot fermenting.

Any comment much appreciated.

So after 4 months in the bottle I just cracked one open and find zero hops aroma and minimal flavor. As this was my first Pale Ale (or IPA), is this normal after 4 months?

Thanks!

Agreed. Used it last night for measuring a crush campden tablet, water salts, acidulated malt & hops.

Not normal imo. What was the OG and FG? I made an extract version last year with extra extract and it wasn't great but definitely drinkable. I plan to do an all grain version next exactly as written in the OP.

SG - 1.050
FG - 1.012

It was drinkable but bland..

I agree that it's not normal. I have a batch made on 17-Sept (about 3 months) that is great or better than at two months.
