Default American Pale Ale *3/25/2011* UPDATE

Today was a brew day, I decided upon an American Pale Ale recipe kit from my LHBS. The kits that they sell are a little less "generic" that most recipe kits. They come with liquid yeast and fresh hops! I was in no hurry to get this beer brewed so I took my time and documented the process with some pictures. I know that nobody can resist a little beer porn.



My SWMBO is a graphic designer so I had her make me a quick label to use on this beer. It is simple but it gets the job done for me! If anyone is interested in having some labels made, let me know. I am sure she can do it for like 10 bucks depending on the complexity of design you want.

This is the recipe:

Ingredients

4lbs Alexander's Light Syrup
3lbs Amber DME
1/2lbs Crushed Briess Crystal Malt 60L
13HBU Centennial Hops (Bittering)
3/4oz Cascade Hops (Aroma)
1 1/2oz Cascade Hops (dry hop)
5oz Priming Sugar

White Labs British Ale Yeast (005)

Target O.G. 1.054-1.056
Target F.G. 1.015-1.017

My actual O.G. was a little bit over that at 1.058 so I left it at that.
