I brew a modified version of this recipe. I submitted it to a local home-brew fest and received a 37 and 38. Thanks to Edwort for laying the foundation for this very tasty and hoppy Pale Ale. :mug:

I actually contemplated making my name "bigtunahaircut" but I decided against it. I should probably name some of my brews after some funny office things. Any suggestions?

Great advice suregork. It sounds like you know fermentation incredibly well. I think I'm going to do this on my next beer just to test my diacetyl sensitivity.

I make my pale ale with 4 additions of cascade and then dry hop with simcoe. For me this combination works. It's not overly complex but hey.. it's a pale ale, nice and smooth.

I also never mash out. I recirculate my mash since I have a HERMS. I will most definitely give this a try, although I am a bit skeptical since it may wreck the efficiency that I'm used to.

I'm not sure how that would help once the wort is flowing and the potential of a leak that's letting air in is still present. I would slow your flow rate way down and see if you're getting bubbles...

perhaps one of your fittings on the pump or valve is letting air in the lines. This could cause bubbles/foam. Also, is the whirlpool arm submerged?

Rodenbach Grand Cru. It's a Flanders Red Ale, doesn't taste like barnyard or horse ass. It's nice and roasted, dark fruit and a bit sour.
