Sounds like a great beer to beginning summer brewing next year! Heck, maybe even make a small batch sometime because my dad likes pale ales all the time it seems.

couldn't I take almost any recipe and double the hops used at the start of the boil and make it a 30 min boil? Assuming all other hops are to be added in the last 30 min., which is usual, just double the bittering hops at the beginning of the boil, 30 min, and make it 30 not 60, no?

Well, what would happen is that you would get quite a bit more hop flavor than you would on the basic recipe. For some styles that's fine, for others it would be very much not fine.

That's the beauty of this recipe. You cut the brew day way down, and end up with a beer with moderate bitterness and high hop flavor and aroma -- the very definition of the APA style.

Also keep in mind that this is only appropriate for extract beers. For all-grain there are various other reasons for an extended boil.

I just had the thought to try this with either some darker crystal or steeping grains that give it more of amber quality with those same hops. Heck, amber malt extract has 2-row, crystal 60, and munich....maybe I'll do this with amber lme/dme and the hops noted. Just a thought....

It's well worth it!

It also seems pretty foolproof. I put it to the test.

I moved my new brew pot to the kitchen sink and soon realized it was a lot hotter day than when I did my first two brews. The ice melted right quick. I had to leave the house and buy more ice.

When the wort was ready to pour into the fermenter was when I remembered I had meant to get a new strainer. Doh! So, in it all went. I reached for the hydrometer, and CRACK! Over it fell. (At least it was still in the plastic container.) So, no OG reading. Then, distracted as I was by the shattered hydrometer, I have no memory of ever aerating the wort before pitching the yeast.

A day or two after sticking the fermenter in the closet, I left town for about a week. When I got back I decided to just leave it in primary. When it was time to dry hop I just opened it up and tossed in two ounces of Cascade, not in a bag. Bottling went fine, except a week later than planned.

I just opened my first bottle of this two nights ago, and I can't stop thinking about the hoppy goodness. Despite the comedy of errors, this is by far my best batch of the three I've brewed. I'm already planning on brewing it again. And on opening that second bottle.

I am going ahead with this tonight. I have to up it to a 30 minute boil because I don't have capability for full boil volume. I have 6 lbs. muntons light dme. 8 oz. c40 and 8 oz. c60. I wanted a little more color so I went with 1 oz. of black malt as well. I was going to make this a red ipa of sorts but the lhbs didn't have carared. I adjusted. With the 30 minute boil its going to be 1 oz. cbus at 30 1 oz cbus at 15. 1 oz. cascade at 5 min. and also 1 oz. at 1 minute. Hopville tells me around 55 ibu which is about right where I would like it to be. 5.6% abv. Like mentioned before I also plan on making this a stable at my place. I know it's going to be good. It will give me a good chance to mess with hops. I'm thinking next time a citra/simco/centennial/cascade combo. I believe that is what is used in greenline pale ale at goose island which I am a major fan of.

here it is. A little lighter in color than I had hoped. A deep orange to light red in hue. This has a great body to it. Solid malt flavor. An extremely orange hop flavor. Light in the bitterness, I had this hopped to 55 ibus but it doesnt seem it. Love this though. this keg wont last long

I know it is recommended to leave this in primary for a month, how would it be affected if that was cut shorter? I am brewing the deception cream stout (12 days in) and want to have a beer ready around christmas. I have done most of my beers with two weeks primary and one week secondary since I bottle everything.

If I did a 3 gallon boil, how would that affect the boil times, would I need to boil longer? and by how much? I don't have beersmith or an immersion chiller yet.
