Just taped this and I must say I am quite surprised. I will be doing this one again even though I have switched to AG. I was only able to do a 3.5g boil since my pot at the time was 4g. Sat in primary for ~3 weeks and 1 week in keg.

I was just wondering what I brew during hot summer months. I think I just found my answer.

Agree - I switched to AG but still made this - and will again. The quality/time ratio is just too high to squabble over the method.

I had the ingredients around to make this again so tonight I was able to do it outside even though it was 34f out the lack of a 60 min mash made this an easy choice. It went much smoother this time not doing it on the stove. No DME clumps . I would like to add a different hop at dry hop time. I have Centennial, crystal, and Williamette so what does everyone recommend?

How are the Citra hops with this? I have never used them and was thinking of dry hopping my batch with 1oz Citra. I don't think I have tried them in a beer before. It was brewed December 31st.

If you try it please report back. I have a package of Citra that I was thinking about using next time I made this and would appreciate the feedback!

I've brewed this 15 minute pale ale 4x already, it's one of my favorite brews. Always consistently tasty and fun to experiment with. Speaking of experiments . . .

Last night I modified this to a 30 minute boil, 4 gallon "black" version:

1lb Crystal 60L
1lb Carafa II
2oz Chinook hops
5oz Cascades
7lb Light LME
8oz Belgian candi sugar
US-05 yeast
Irish moss - optional

Bring 2.5 gallons to 160, remove from heat, and steep grains for 20-30 minutes
Remove grains, bring to boil
Remove from heat to add LME
Back to boil, add 1st hop addition (start timing 30 min)
Add 2nd addition hops and irish moss (10 min)
Add candi sugar (5 min)
Add last hop addition (0 min flameout)
Dry hop after 10-14 days of primary (I then dry hop for 5-10 days)

Hop schedule:
30 min: 2.5oz cascades, 1/2oz chinook
10 min: 1oz cascades; 1/2 oz chinook
0 min: 1/2 oz cascades; 1/2 oz chinook
Dry hop: 1oz cascades; 1/2 oz chinook

I only did 4 gallons to make it a little stronger (like an IPA). You could up it to 5 gallons and use more LME or DME and/or more candi sugar. Use your favorite yeast. My us-05 is rolling this morning, just 10 hours after being put into my bucket.

I will update the results of my experimental recipe in a couple weeks. If it turns out good, I may add more hops in the next batch and consider an additional variety (simcoe, columbus, citra, centennial).

After 14 days fermenting, all I can say is......incredible! I only used 2 oz of Citra. 1.5oz at 15 min, and .5oz at 5 min.
I decided not to dry hop this since the sample tasted so good. It was very balanced, great aroma, great taste. I have to say this is by far my best brew I have made, I am not a hop head, but I don't mind a good amount of hops in my beer, this seems to me like just the right amount...
I am serious folks, I could drink this warm and flat right now, it's that good!

Mine will be slightly different than that. I used Cascade for making the beer and am dry hopping with Citra. I added an ounce to it last night and will be bottling sometime next weekend. First time using it, so will see how it goes.
