I'm trying to create a nice house pale ale to go on tap in my new keezer. Will post how it turns out.
Took an unreasonably early sample at 8 days. Numbers are perfect, 1.012 or 1.013 temp corrected. Pretty happy at hitting 1051 and 1013 on my first true all grain.

Sample was cloudy and obviously needs more time. Kind of wish I had dumped in some more hops late, but maybe the dry hop will bring out some of the hop flavor.

Got a slight corn or grainy taste that I had in 1 or 2 of my BIAB attempts. Could be DMS? I usually boil pretty vigorously with an SQ14 so that doesn't seem right.

At any rate, sample was really clean tasting and this should turn out good with the right age behind it.

I brewed a 2.5 gal batch of this a few weeks ago and bottled it up today. The smell of that beer when I put it in the bottling bucket was dynamite. I usually dont care for the warm, flat hydrometer samples, but this one was pretty tasty. I just hate that I have to wait a couple more weeks to enjoy this beer in all its glory. I'm also kicking myself for making a half batch.

I just did a batch very similar to this recipe. I was not all that happy with the results. The one thing mine was missing was bitter. I used citra at 60 thinking it would do the trick, no such luck. I think im gonna run it again with chinook initially. The other issue is i ended up with no head retention. Im pretty sure it has to do with the bran new brew kettle I used. I must not have cleaned it as will as I thought and had some oils or something in there.

11 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row)
12.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt
8.0 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine

0.50 oz Cascade [6.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 7 0.0 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [12.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 8 0.0 IBUs

My batch is finished conditioning, and I picked up a funny taste in mine during secondary and bottling. It was almost a nail polish flavor. I had MadEthelFlint's kegged version and it was outstanding,mine is not nearly as good. I wonder if I picked up an infection. My fermentation lagged a bit, partly do to poor aeration due to intoxication. I'm wondering if I infected it or its oxygenation from splashing of somesort in bottling.

some bottles are OK, some bottles are meh. Its drinkable. I'm sure i screwed something up somewhere. I will have to re-brew this to make sure I didn't screw it up somewhere
