Awesome, thanks.

Azscoob, dude. How could I have missed this thread? Oh, I remember now. I wasn't reading HBT then. Anyway, belated congrats on the win and the recipe looks great. I copied it for my future brews. Thanks...

Any recommendations on water profile for this brew? I typically use RO water and build up from there.

This is my first attempt at a home brew. All my numbers came in dead on throughout the process. (Im an airplane mechanic, so following directions to a T is ingrained in me). Unfortunately I didn't have a tube for my Hygrometer on brew day. So I'm just going to let it sit on the cake for 3-4 weeks, cold crash, prime and bottle. Oh, and my local home brew supply didn't have WLP002, so I used WLP005. Cant wait to see how it turns out. Im marking this one up to a learning experience. As long as its not contaminated, Ill be happy. Ill just watch the FG in a few weeks and make the transition.

topshelf: traditional mild wouldn't be let to sit for that long, as you drink it a bit more 'green' than other brews, anyway, neither conditioning it those extra two weeks will hurt nor not doing it and crashing after two weeks

Okay, thanks for the info. I may just go ahead and bottle it after the 10 days then. Since im a noob, I'm kind of blind sided by how short of time this beer can be ready. Im cool with that though. Its the quicker I can brew the next. I absolutely love brewing beer so far. I think its all the variables.

Brewed this yesterday with a few tweaks.

- Used Crisp UK Pale Ale malt
- Only one addition of EKG hops at 45 minutes (5.8% AA)

Just out of curiosity, can anyone tell if the 15 minute addition makes any difference on a beer with such low IBUs?


In addition, this style is supposed to have little to no hop perception. Would a 45 minute addition be enough to keep this beer tasting the same as the original posted recipe?

The difference between a 60 and 45 minute shouldn't be too noticeable, maybe a touch more flavor from the 45, not much. 60 will bitter more though. A 15 minute will add flavor and a bit of aroma to the beer.

I get that, I'm just wondering if this 15 minute addition will actually do anything with this small of a beer and with that small amount of hops with such low alpha acids.
