Default All-Grain - Ugly Kettle Pale Ale (Top APA in Local Comp)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale - 05
Yeast Starter: Prior Batch SLurry
Batch Size (Gallons): 11
Original Gravity: 1.043
Final Gravity: 1.007
IBU: 23.1
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 5.2
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 Days at 68 degrees
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Keg conditioned at 60 degrees for 14 days

This beer took third in the Light Ale category at a local competition recently. There were five major groupings for judging and all pale ales were lumped under this light ale category, along with blondes, cream ales, etc… This was the only American Pale Ale to place which meant it had to be the best of the lot.

The IBU’s are light on this beer compared to standards. But by mashing this beer (153ish) for 90+ minutes, it finished out very dry and the hop bitterness came through nicely. That…along with a nice late addition and dry hopping made this a very crisp, clean beer with a nice hop nose. This is a nice warm weather pale ale as it gets away from the heavy malt tones.

This recipe is easy on the old hops budget too, with only 5 ¼ ounces of hops for a 10-gallon batch, including the dry hopping.

Anyway…I thought it was a great beer and to get a third place medal and be the top rated American Pale Ale means I must have gotten something right.

Note that the Phoenix and Galena are interchangeable if you only have one of these hops. You could even sub in Crystal…just adjust the recipe for the lower AAU’s.

Looks like an awesome recipe, Biermuncher. Would you happen to have a 5.5 gallon version? (Just divide everything by two?)

Some of those hops look kind of rare, even though suitable substitutes can be found. I'll definitely have to add this one to the list though! Thanks.

Yes. Cut everything in half except the .25 ounces of that 1-minute addition.

Also, the dry hop schedule I posted was per-five gallons, so don't cut the dry hops.

Congrats on the third place! I am putting this on the schedule for next brew day. Incidentally, I have tried several of your recipes and have loved them all. Thanks for the contributions.

If I can score all the hops I'll try this one out.
