To simplify what BTP says. Basically a single infulsion mash at 153F. Boil and follow hop schedule. The dry hop was one week in the secondary.

This pale ale did not last long in the keg, it was pretty tasty. This was a first of the APA series that I will adjust until I get something exactly as I want it. If you brew this or even have a suggestion, let me know. Thanks.
