If it tastes good, bottle it. Just pay attention to carb level. Check one after a week or 3-4 days if you're worried. And keep "checking" (drink) them often. If you start to get over-carbed or...

I think American ale 1056 or S-05 or WLP001 would be acceptable substitute for an American wheat yeast. As long as you ferment in the temperature range you should get a nice neutral flavor.

Other than removing the Carpils and doing a full pound of Crystal 40, I think you have a winning recipe. I like medium body for my IPA's so I do a 60 minute mash. Just my personal preference. Unless...

I agree with letting the priming sugar ferment out. Reprime and bottle as normal. I bought a bench capper and haven't looked back since, I still have my red wing capper as an insurance policy but I...

I agree with more and different malts can make a beer more complex but I'm always worried about making "brown beer." I guess I like to play it safe. Also I have had an all Galaxy IPA, I don't...

I've found that the simpler the recipe the better. It may not be true in all cases but I think it works most of the time.

Anyway I'd try

X amount of 2 row to hit gravity
Maybe a 1/2 to a pound...

I just shape by hand, and use a turkey baster to get the grease out. It really helps get the bottom nice and crusty. A little burnt is even better.

Here goes my recipe

I should have mentioned the recipe is for five gallons. Also the 2 oz of black malt is added to the recipe. If you'd like you could add 4 oz of black malt instead of 2 which will make it black. I...

Forgot to mention

You can add 2 oz of black patent malt to make it darker. As is the beer is about mid range of the style (brown-brownish red). With the black malt it is about 3/4 to the top of the range (almost...

Canada Malting Company makes a pale ale malt. I think pale ale malt gives a little something extra. Of course I need to do the same beer with 2-row and pale ale malt to taste them side by side.
