Notes

My efficiency is 80%
This beer is hands down one of the best pale ales I have made, and one of the best I have tasted in a long time. It seems unusual to use the Danstar Munich strain, however it worked so well especially after 3 weeks in the bottle - give the yeast time to settle out. You must try it to believe it. Both BMC drinkers and lovers of full flavor beers have all very much enjoyed this one. Even my grandfather loves it, and he only drinks wine.

If necessary, you could use Wyeast 3638 however you would likely get a more estery beer than with the Danstar Munich. I do suspect this beer would also be good with S-33. It would also likely work with any clean ale yeast (such as Cali Ale), however it may not have the same character.
