your right. Been drinking it for about 3 days. seems to improve each day. i will use your exact recipe next time, the Columbus for bittering is a little much, but it is growing on me. Good beer.

Mashing this now, had to adjust hops amounts due to mine only being 5%. Also, I'm doing 5.5 gallons. Thanks for the recipe Yooper

Made this again (first batch back in the Fall) on Saturday. Look forward to dry hopping and quaffing! This batch had an OG of 1.063; I was targeting 1.060.

Thanks again, YOOP!

Yooper, I'll be brewing this in the next week or two. I read from earlier in this thread that you do some water adjustments. Right now I use ro water exclusively and do a cheat from a Ken Schwartz paper I read...add a few tablespoons of dme to the mash water to get some of the necessary minerals to convert the mash. It has worked well thus far re: efficiency.

However, do you have any suggestions about building water for this beer if I'm starting w ro? If not, no biggie but thought I'd check. Really looking forward to trying this one out. Craving a fragrant, easy drinking apa and your house brew looks like just the ticket.

I brewed this last Fall with strictly RO water, and it turned out great.

I used WLP-001 on this, its been in primary for a week. I made a 1L yeast starter for it and it seems to be taking a long time for the Krausen to drop, I realize its only been a week but usually my pale ales "appear" finished in the first week and are starting to clear. My OG was 1.059 and I am fermenting around 68 (as per WLP-001 directions) but with the amount of yeast I put in I wouldn't think it would take this long to fall.
