This is version 2 of my scratch Pale Ale. I wanted to switch from Centennial to Amarillo just to check out the differences. I also switched up the add times for the hops, partly to get a similar IBU, but also to give more hop aroma.

Once again I used the mighty DeathBrewer's stovetop AG method. I got 73% efficiency, an OG of 1.054 and a FG of 1.011, leaving an ABV of 5.61%.

Three weeks from bottling and once again this is delicious. I need to go and throw some of version 1 in the fridge to do a side by side taste test. Brew either of the versions and you will not be disappointed.

Version 1 can be found here.

Edit: Just realized I added Irish Moss to this version too which makes it clearer than v1. Side by side taste test and there's not much between them. They're different but I coudn't say one was better.
Primary - I'm on a break dammit!!!!
Secondary - sold it!
Kegged - Commercial beer
