I've been brewing too many specialty beers lately. I need something to drink as more of a session beer, so I'm makin' up 15 gallons of this one. Here's the scaled recipe link.

Really looking forward to it - Lakewalk was AWESOME when I had it at Dude's house!

Funny you bumped this...I just tried a sample of the latest LWPA from the tap yesterday. Another good one.

It is always a personal pleasure when someone brews one of my recipes.

I'm curious--how do you come up with your taste rating? I sure can't complain about a 45! Is that for real?

It was a total WAG. BeerSmith's default is 35, so most of my recipes just say 35. I wanted to make a note of the fact that I like this one better than the average recipe, so I just arbitrarily added 10 points. If you like, after I brew it, I can make some more detailed notes, and actually rate it appropriately.

I'm gonna have to try this. I need to get some toasted malt, wheat flakes, & simcoe and I'll be good to go.

I toast the malt myself--it is really easy. I toast it at about 275° for about 30 minutes, stir it halfway through.

The wheat is optional, I use it for head retention only.

I have about 100 lbs. of wheat malt, just not flaked. So I can toast 2 row pale myself. Hmmm. Add more character if you ask me. Thanks!

I was gonna ask you about that. I remember you mentioning it, and I didn't buy any toasted malt since I have plenty of 2-row on the way.

Unfortunately, I had to go with Cascade instead of Centennial. I'm really bummed about that, but AHS (quickest/cheapest shipping to NM) won't have Centennial in stock in time for my brew day. This brew is a bit of a rush job so I can get another few gallons going before a 3 week trip in Nov. I love Centennial and Simcoe, and I was looking forward to putting both in the same beer.

So, my review may be a bit skewed because of the substitution. I've had the real deal and can attest to its tastiness.

Nope--I often use Cascade as well. In fact, in the latest batch, I used a Cascade dissolve tablet in the keg. That beer NEEDS the Amarillo and Simcoe together to be "Lake Walk". Next time I'm only going to use those two--no "C" hops at all.

Simcoe and Amarillo together are just awesome. No kidding, they give it a tropical fruity taste and aroma. I have had so many people ask me if I put a little bit of pineapple juice in my beer. That is awesome.

The IBU's seem high, but it isn't that bitter. I have people who won't drink SNPA, absolutely quaff this stuff.

I can't think of a better way to reverse my day/night schedule than brewing a batch of AG pale ale. Lake walk is all doughed in and I'm bottling my winter warmer at 3 AM. Should be halfway through boiling by the time the sun comes up. This rocks.

0300 AM: Doughed in w/30 lbs of grain.
0320 AM: 10 gallons of winter warmer bottled, Lake Walk mash smells awesome.
0350 AM: Heating the sparge water - mash is holding steady at 155.
0400 AM: Iodine test indicates complete conversion. Sparge water almost ready.
0500 AM: Sparge complete. Boil started. Smells wonderful.
0540 AM: Adding the Simcoe. I love that stuff.
