Default Partial - Ginger Pale Ale

Recipe Type: Partial Mash
Yeast: WLP001
Yeast Starter: none
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: n/a
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.047
Final Gravity: 1.01
IBU: 35.7
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 4 weeks at 68
Tasting Notes: Pours gold with a nice rocky white head. A hint of ginger up front balanced by grapef

Grain bill:
1 # crystal 20l
1 # crystal 60l
3 # pale liquid extract
3 # pale 2-row

hops:
1oz Cascade @ 60min
1oz Amarillo @ 30min
.75oz Cascade @ 10min
.25 oz Cascade @ 5min

extras:
1oz sliced ginger @ 10min
1.5oz sliced ginger @ 5min

Brewed 3.12.12, bottled 4.09.12, first taste on 4.15.12. Pours gold with a nice rocky white head. A hint of ginger up front balanced by grapefruit/citrus hop character with a clean finish. Carbonated it on the high end for the style, and I think that turned out well.

This is easily the best beer we've brewed so far (I believe it is batch number six), and I was surprised that it turned out as balanced as it did. I'm thinking next time we brew we may taper off the hops or move some of the amarillo to later in the boil to up the ginger character.

Interesting, I have been looking for a Ginger Beer recipe and I may have to give this one a shot.

If you are looking for something with a well-pronounced ginger character I'd definitely recommend upping the ginger or dialing back the hops. This is closer to a pale ale than a ginger beer.

If you do decide to tweak, keep me posted... this one looks to be worth fine-tuning.
