Took another reading, its at 1.024 now. So obviously, its steadily going down. Today the temperature upstairs finally hit 70* (its been cold and rainy here in WI). What would you guys suggest I do? Leave it sit in the secondary for another week or so? I plan on checking the gravity every 2-3 days (Was 1.028 on Sunday, 1.026 on Wednesday-this was when I decided to move it to a warmer temp than 65*-and 1.024 today). I understand the aroma hops will diminish.. Can I dry hop it again, or is that a no no? Just curious what to do in this situation, its the first time I've run into the problem of not hitting my FG within 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for any help/advice.

Just bottled this last night, it taste so good, I could almost could have drank it flat all night long.

paarman, I had a similar issue as you with this brew. After I hit 1.020 I had to stir it to get the gravity down more. Once I did that, it come down another .10 after a few days.

Spark plug, thanks for the advice... I gave it a swirl about a week ago, unfortunately my FG ended up being 1.020 said and done, sat at that for about a week. Bottled it on Friday, I'm going to give it a taste tomorrow out of one of my sampler bottles.. Like you said above, it tasted great flat, can't wait to see what it tastes like carbed!

Tried my first bottle tonight.. Pretty damn tasty. After thinking about it, I'm kind of glad the ABV dropped down to ~6%... Makes it more of a sessionable beer. Pretty happy with this recipe, I will enjoy it this summer for sure!

tried mine last night, 2 weeks in the bottle, pretty damn good, has a nice dry taste/feel to it, needs a little more carbing though, another week will do it wonders!

So I don't have enough pale malt (I have 7 lbs and the LHBS is closed tomorrow on the 4th) to make this but I have regular 2-row, Vienna malt, Maris Otter and pilsen malt. Can I use any of these either in combination with the 7 lbs of pale malt or 14 lbs of another malt? Is the IBU's for this recipe suppose to be over 90 for a 5 gallon recipe?

So I am a bit confused. Does pale ale malt have a maltier profile than standard 2-row? I thought it might be the other way around. I have plenty of regular 2-row that I could use for this recipe but I am short on pale ale malt.

For my third question on this recipe...would doing 1/2 of the magnum addition as a first wort hop be a good idea? I am not a fan of IPAs but my wife loves them and I would like to make a good attempt with this recipe.

"Pale Ale", like most other malts we use for ales is 2-row, technically, but it's used to describe a slightly darker (3 vs 2 lovibond) malted barley. It's a little bit like Maris Otter, which is even maltier, I'd say.

As sold, US and Canadian generic "2-row" is the lightest malt sold for making ales.

You can use pale malt and 2 row interchangeably, very slight differences
