Not like i should for a pale ale. I dont know what has happened maybe next time ill just double the hops or something.
Try taking an ounce of cascade and dry hop the keg.

Use a 1-gallon paint strainer along with a zip tie and fasten the bag to the bottom of your dip tube. (You'll have to dismantle the keg a bit).

Give it a good 4-5 day soak and then enjoy. I will usually leave my dry hop sack in the keg for the duration...if I know the keg will last less than a month.

Cool, i will do that, but all that i have is .5 ounce of cascade pellets on hand i will have to order some. i was thinking about just ordering that ball from nb so i could just toss it in.

I attempted to convert this to Extract and scale down to a 5.5 final volume with a 3 gallon boil and this is what Beersmith came up with (amounts adjusted slightly for more sane values):

Ingredients

Amount Item Type % or IBU
7.00 lb Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 8.89 %
4.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 35.56 %
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 2.22 %
1.75 oz Pearle [6.30 %] (70 min) Hops 23.9 IBU
1.75 oz Cascade [7.00 %] (10 min) Hops 9.3 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [7.00 %] (5 min) Hops 2.9 IBU
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale


The profile looked pretty spot-on to what BierMuncher posted for the AG recipe, except the color was very dark (something like 9.7SRM) of course, extract being dark like that. I tried tinkering with it and subbing in some Extra Pale LME from Austin Home Brew to tone the color down and came up with this (exactly the same except subbing 6 pounds of the Pale for Extra Pale). All the specs are pretty spot on, but what will it do to the taste? Austin Homebrew's "Extra Pale LME" is the Briess Pilsen malt.

Ingredients

Amount Item Type % or IBU
6.00 lb Extra Pale Liquid Malt Extract (3.0 SRM) Extract 53.33 %
1.00 lb Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 8.89 %
4.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 35.56 %
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 2.22 %
1.75 oz Pearle [6.30 %] (70 min) Hops 23.9 IBU
1.75 oz Cascade [7.00 %] (10 min) Hops 9.3 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [7.00 %] (5 min) Hops 2.9 IBU
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale

Anyone have any thoughts?

You could go with extra light dry extract and lighten up the color a bit. Otherwise it looks like a good extract version.

Did 1/2 c. sugar work well for you?

I brewed a 3 gal. batch of this 2 weeks ago. Just took racked it to the secondary and had a little taste--DELICIOUS! I'm gonna dry hop w/ a 1/2 oz. cascades too. But I thought it was already pretty bubbly with carbonation and was wondering if 1/2 c. of sugar made it too carbonated for you?

That "carbonation" you see now is all escaping as the fermentation completes. Only once the beer is under pressure does the CO2 get absorbed into the beer and carbonate it.

1/2 cup for a 3 gallon batch should be fine. Just make sure your beer is completely fermented out first to avoid over carbing.

Now to put you on the spot BM. I noticed you brewed EdWort's Haus Pale Ale. Which do you like more? [You don't have to answer that if you don't want to. ] Can you contrast the two beers at all though?

As I recall, I brewed a lighter version of Ed's. Which one was better depends on what you were in the mood for. Ed's leaned toward the maltier version and this was a bit more dry and decidedly west coast bittery.
