Posted in thread: Anglo-American Pale Ale recipe critique on 10-16-2014 at 06:56 PM
I have a similar strategy to you and have since developed a pale that is a bit of a hybrid:
english malts (i use golden promise primarily) and I use WLP001 for the yeast and lock it in
for one of my s...
Posted in thread: What is your go to pale ale yeast? on 10-16-2014 at 06:36 PM
I am partial to English strains and house yeast WLP007. Love it for IPAs, Pales, and Bitter.
Has a good temp range 65f-70f, great attenuation and floculates better for me than anything
else. I run it ...

Agree with most things above, need to go simpler. You did state that you want an "earthy" IPA,
and the hops that you have listed will give you a west coast citrus/pine flavor (which is great
but not e...

I was thinking along the lines that if i wanted a hint of brett/bacteria that would allow the

I brewed the 11-11-11 Old ale recipe in 2010 for 11-11-11 using Wyeast 9097 which is an english
strain and their normal brett L or a strain of brett L from them. I mashed at 158F boiled the
first 2 ga...

I am looking for a nice dexrinous wort and the more I think about it I will need brett yeast to
finish it off for the acidity, dark fruit and port like character I'm looking for. I concede
that I'm hi...

Best old ale I have ever had was Rosie's old ale from Barley Johns here in MN. I did want to
hit on a similar flavor profile, but I am completely aware that I will fall well short of the
18% alcohol c...

I do have to admit that I felt a bit lost coming into this beer design. I usually know pretty
precisely what I am designing for but I'm not sure on this one. I guess I was thinking that
they would hav...

Looks pretty good, I wouldn't worry about the number of specialty grains, you have the standard
75% base malt stuff and ~12% roast and the rest is just extra flavors your looking for. I think

Just Curious about why you are using corn sugar. Its a pretty low gravity and you are using
some pretty ferment-able base malts. Are you looking to bring the FG down by just a couple
points? Other the...
