Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast 1272 - American Ale II   
Yeast Starter: none   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.064   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 53   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 15   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12 @ 67   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 1 (cold-crash) @ 40   
Tasting Notes: Nice balance between hops and malt.   

I was inspired by Heavy Seas Pale Ale, which uses a good portion of English ingredients. The Marris Otter and the Victory give it a little biscuity flavor, and the English hops give a nice supplement to the typical American Ale Cascade flavor.

Wyeast 1272 - American Ale II

Mashed at 151 for 60m, batch sparged.

I forgot to add the Whirlfloc and tried to gelatin fine it, but it's still a little cloudy. Also, the bucket was in the basement laundry room, which has AC, but we had 2-3 days of close to 100F heat so the fermentation might have gotten a little hot - but no off-flavors are detected.

Turned out real nice. I'm having a hard time trying to keep some of this around for a little while.
