You don't list the batch size, but with a 3 gallon carboy I'm guessing 2.0-2.5 gallons. If you haven't done All Grain, now might be the time to try. With a smaller batch size it would be very managable and good experience.

Way too much crystal, even for a 5 gallon batch. For a 2.5 gallon batch, I'd use no more than 10 ounces.

sorry yeah 2.5 gallon brew Removed LLE added 3 pounds Maris Otter and up Pale Malt to 4 pounds

I like the idea about trying all grain toying with that in my head atm trying to think if i have a way of pulling it out with out buying anything

Yooper: Think for the heads up on the crystal Changed to 10oz

What do you guys think about Bittering with Cascade? I know its mainly aroma hop.

I trying to come up with a House Pale Ale and im toying around with some ideas
