I posted a picture of my version of this in a different thread. I ended up using a mixture of pellet hops and leaf hops to dry hop because that's all I could find. It looks like a disgusting mix of swamp water and leaves. But, oh, does it smell and taste so good! I can't wait. I think I'll rack it out of that carboy on Friday-ish and let it clear a bit before kegging it.

Thanks for such an awesome combination of ingredients!

I actually used all pellets in a hop bag. No issues.

Ok, I am going to brew up another batch of this using Biscuit to see if I can eliminate the toasting step. Not that big deal, but why not? Also, looking forward to hear about the Centennial deletion. This is going to be our house beer for a while. Here it is. Ok, I'll quit crowing now.

Wow that looks tasty!!

I plan on making with out centennial in a few weeks so I will let you know.
I think it will be very good with just the 2 hops, the should compliment each other fine. I do love cenntenial as well so we shall see.

I eliminated Centennial from the hops additions recipe on the latest version. I will update the recipe if I find that it improves it.
If I get my shipment from AHS in time I plan to try this over the weekend. When you left out the Centennial did you change the other hop additions to compensate?

Nope.

Just brewed this one up last weekend. The color was a little darker than I expected - anyone have a pic of one in the glass?

EDIT-Nevermind - Korndog's pic was slow to load and I missed it.

It always looks darker in the kettle/fermenter.

Mine is just about carbed up enough to sample and review again. I'm off the next few days so I'll definitely be drinking some fresh LWPA!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to hearing this review. Got everything I need to try brewing LWPA this weekend. Going with the no ”C” version. Hearing your new thoughts will make the waiting easier.

After reading all I could find, I still have a question. Where does the name come from?

"Lake Walk Crossing" was the street we lived on when I first started brewing. This recipe was kind of the first recipe I ever started tinkering with to make a house pale ale. It has gone through many renditions and is finally getting up to where I really like it.

FWIW, I think my second batch of this (extract) really got the ball rolling on my brewing hobby. It turned out great, and up until recently I've been trying to replicate that extract version doing all grain. Getting there!

I'm really happy to see so much interest in it. You guys are making my head swell! Thanks!
