That picture makes me want to brew this beer! Never had the original and need to see if I can pick it up somewhere. I'm currently fermenting cream of three crops with Kolsch and this might be a great repitch beer off that cake.

Brewed this today as a 5 g batch and am very excited about it.

Store was out of honey malt so I did .25# CaraVienne and also Victory. And I had some galena left over so did .6 oz instead of Centennial.

Thanks for the great recipe!

This is maltier and more robust in flavor than SNPA in my opinion. If you love the hop flavor / aroma without the high bitterness, this is perfect.

Anyway, whether you like or don’t like Kona Pale Ale, this clone will get you dangerously close.

Would this be good to dry hop with Citra?

Just had this beer for the first time and it's awesome. Definitely going to brew this some time.

Just brewed a batch of this today, but I forgot the Munich malt! Brewing otherwise went without a hitch. OG was 1.051. Looking forward to tasting in a month or so

It was my first time using WLP-029 Kolsch yeast. It was super thick...came out of the vial almost like pudding. Has anyone else experienced this?

I just bought a 6 pack of this over the weekend and I really like it. I have no doubt I'll brew this 'as is' but right now I'm looking to brew something that's a tad softer while the weather is still warm in SoCal, like something that straddles the line between a blond ale and an APA. Something that still retains the general character and balance of this beer, just lighter. My thought is to dial back the IBUs to 28-30 and replaced the MO with domestic 2-row. Would that give me something close to what I'm looking for (as best as I've been able to describe it), or is there some other way I should approach this?

I still I don't have much experience with creating/modifying recipes so any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. And thank you BierMuncher for all of your contributions to this forum. I've learned a lot by reading through your posts.

I would cut the munich and honey malt in half and replace with base 2-row. Also maybe use a half pilsner/half pale malt as your base mix.

Mash down closer to 150 rather than 154.

Don't get your IBU's below 30 or the beer may become unbalanced.

Eliminate any hops additions shorter than 20 minutes and of course, eliminate the dry hopping.

This should give you a good Pale Ale that is not nearly so hoppy and has a lighter malt profile.
