Hey All,

I am looking to brew an extract version of an all grain receipt that contains Domestic Pale Ale Malt and more specifically Great Western's version. Is there a extract equivalent of this malt? If not can I get the same results (taste, aroma, color...) from light LME or DME with steeping grains?

On a side note I did not see this malt in Beer Smith. Does anyone know an similar malt in Beer Smith to use. May be able to convert using Beer Smith if I know a similar malt in Beer Smith.

Any help is appreciated.

You may do better with posting the recipie and asking for help converting it to a extract version.

The recipe is a Mirror Pond clone from the Brewing Network show Can you Brew It. The recipe is as follows:

6 gallon
FG: 1.053
OG: 1.014
90 min boil
42 IBU

91.5% 5.5 kg Pale Ale Malt (Great Western)
7.00% 420 g Crystal 75L
1.50% 90 g CaraPils
Mash: 149F for 60 min

28 g Cascade (6% AA) 85 min - 22 IBU
28 g Cascade (6% AA) 30 min - 13 IBU
28 g Cascade (6% AA) 5 min - 4 IBU
28 g Cascade (6% AA) 0 min - 3 IBU
21 g Cascade (6% AA) dry hop - 7 days

11 g Calcium Sulfate

WLP002 (Wy1968) English Ale - 65F

My understanding is "Pale Ale Malt" is different than "Pale Malt." "Pale Malt" is standard two row and "Pale Ale Malt" is more highly kilned.

Thanks

So their site says, "Northwest Pale Ale Malt (2.6-3.0L)

A slightly darker base malt than our Premium 2-Row, our Northwest Pale Ale Malt is produced from well-modified, Western-grown 2-Row barley, with a kilning regimen based closely on traditional British Pale Ale malting practices. Contributes a malty complexity to beer flavor and aroma. Excellent in American Pale Ales and American versions of British beer styles. "

Sounds to me like domestic malt kilned in a British style. I use Williams Brewing malt extract and love it. I would suggest either the Amber or Pale Ale malt.

Amber, uses two row and some crystal - http://www.williamsbrewing.com/AMERI...-P1302C99.aspx

Pale Ale, more bready than the Amber and probably what I would choose - http://www.williamsbrewing.com/PALE-...-P2488C99.aspx
