Yeah, if you remove the FHW, or even a 60min addition, you'd lose most of the bittering.

This beer is a clone, and it is to be at 40-41 IBU's. So keep that in mind when you all want to change it around. It'll make good beer, I'm sure. But it won't be the recipe stated.

23 IBU's in a beer is weak.. unless it's a saison or a blonde.

It's a fantastically, easy drinking, ultra flavorful Pale Ale. These guys make one of the best Pale's I've ever had, and the Brewer, and the Brewery are TOP NOTCH. The Headbrewer gave me some "direction" in designing/guessing the recipe, and it helped me greatly. I believe this one is very close to the original, and if anything makes a fantastic, easy drinking beer that is good to the last drop!

Mash @ 152* for 60 minutes.

11 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 88.0 %
12.0 oz Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM) Grain 2 6.0 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.0 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 4 2.0 %
0.40 oz Citra [13.40 %] - First Wort 60.0 min Hop 5 18.9 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 6 10.7 IBUs
0.28 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 mins) Fining 7 -
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 8 7.8 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 9 4.3 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Boil 1.0 min Hop 10 0.9 IBUs
2.00 oz Citra [13.40 %] - Flameout 0.0 min Hop 11 0.0 IBUs
2.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) [50.28 ml] Yeast 12 -
1.10 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 10 min) Other 13 -
2.00 oz Citra [12.00 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days Hop 14 0.0 IBUs

Ferment it out cool, around 66-67*F.

It's a great tasting, balanced, and fruity Pale Ale. If you hate Citra, you are in the wrong place. The wheat is what gives this beer the slightly creamier, heavier mouthfeel that makes you love it. The lacing and head on the beer are perfect. So refreshing!



First off i am new to all grain and have never dry hoped before sotoday i bought everything to do this recipe and they gave me 2 oz of raw hops not pellets so is this ok to use for dry hopping and if so do i still use 2 oz. this sounds like a great beer

thanks
Jim

Yes.. Use the whole leaf hops for dry hopping. Use every bit that you bought!

Good luck with it.

I must say, this was a truly delicious beer, and dangerously drinkable. I have tried to get the original (in fact, I have never tasted it!), but they don't seem to distribute in NY state. So I can't judge how good it is at replicating the real thing, but it's great.

That said, I do think a few more flavor hop additions are a good idea. I will definitely brew this again with your newly posted recipe. Thanks!

Thank you very much. I can't take credit for the idea of this beer, as I'm trying to clone Oddsides CPA, but, I will agree that this beer is so dang good, and soooo easy to drink, you'll find yourself wondering where the hell it all went, and so fast..

Infact.. my keg kicked last night... Need to brew this again.

BTW, the recipe on page one is the original one I came up with.

The suggestions going foward, would be to add another half ounce at 10 and 5 minutes, or even split the difference and do an ounce at 7minutes. Use Beersmith, to balance it back to roughly 41 IBU's, and I'd suggest no higher than 45. Might drop back the bittering addition to even it all out if need be.

I will update the recipe this week, and get all the numbers lined up to keep the beer where it should be.

Enjoy.
