Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: Notty   
Yeast Starter: NOPE   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: NOPE   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.055   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 36.1   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 15   
Color: 12 Copper to Red to Lt Brown   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 30 @ 65 degrees F   
Additional Fermentation: none   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days dry hop   
Tasting Notes: Nice hoppy aroma, piney citrusy hop flavor and aromas followed by a semi sweet malt   

This is a very simple pale for a brewer of any level of experience. While I enjoy doing my All Grain beers, I still brew this beer from time to time. The plus is that you only have to boil the beer for 15 minutes and you are done. So we are looking at a 2 hour brew day including clean up with a wonderful tasting hoppy yet sweet caramel flavored pale ale. And since its extract and with such a big hop bill you only need to boil the extract for 15 MINUTES!

Pours a nice copper/reddish color with a 1 finger head that sticks around leaving a nice lacing down the glass.


Grain/Extracts

6lbs Light Dry Malt Extract added to the boil
1lbs Crystal 60 add the grains to the water and steep until the water temp reaches 170 and pull them out.

Hops

2.5oz Cascade 7.5% AA at 15 min
1oz Cascade 7.5%aa at 5 min
.50 oz Cascade 7.5% at flameout
1oz Cascade 7.5% dry hop 7 days after primary fermentation has wrapped up.


This beer is great with notty as I typically use notty on my beers I want to ferment on the cooler side. I imagine any clean fermenting yeast would do well. If you want some fruity esters I have done this recipe twice with s-04.

I just updated the recipe notes. You want to add the grains to the water as soon as you turn on your burner and steep them until the water reaches 170 and pull them out.

Just bottled another batch of this tonight. I dry hopped it this time with 2oz of cascade and it smells wonderful.

Wondering what this would be like with Citra hops? Ill keep experimenting and keep updating this thread.

I agree that this is a great recipe for a quick and simple brewday. I've brewed 2 batches of this with amarillo hops (that's what I had around), and both have turned out awesome. It's also a quick drinker. No extended aging necessary.

So do you start the boil with 5.5 gal of water? Or are you adding water at the end of the boil to reach OG?

i start with the full volume, with a 15 minute boil you are losing very little water due to boil off and also are getting a better hop utilization.
