Brewed this one up last night side by side with different pale ale, both 1st attempts at AG. Samples smelled and tasted great! Will be dry-hopping in 3 wks.
Brew-day took a lite longer than usual, with a few minor hiccups for first go at AG. Nothing that couldn't be easily troubleshooted with quick home-brewer thinking. Ended up mistakenly overshooting intended pre-boil water volumes into BK by about a gallon. By end of boil, still had an extra half gallon than we needed, but just went with it. Even with that, still ended up with OG of 1.060, which bro-in-law and I were very happy about getting great efficiency. (First time we've mashed more than 7 lbs).
Can't wait to taste final product! Thanks Yooper for the recipe!
