Thanks dudes. Chin Chin right back at you. And yes, the little man is definitely a brewmaster in training--although his mother keeps giving me grief for seeing if he will still fit in the brewpot....

@msa8967 I'd post my recipe for a Pacific Pale Ale, but I have to say that I don't really put much thought in to it! My grain bill is 90% 2-row, 5% Carapils/Dextrine, 5% Crystal (usually 60L). For my system, that's 9 lbs/0.5 lbs/0.5 lbs. Mash @ 152 F

For hops, I think Cascade is the quintessential West Coast Hop, so I almost always use it as flavour and aroma charge as the key ingredient. I generally bitter with Perle, Centennial, Magnum or just Cascade all the way down. I aim for an IBU in the upper 30s--38 is usually good for me. And then I dry hop 7 days with Simcoe or Cascade. again. My last brew was 1 oz 10% AA Magnum @60 min, 1 oz 9.2% AA Cascade @15 min, .5 oz Cascade @5 min. Wyeast 1056 @ 65 F. Dry hopped w/ 1 oz Simcoe once fermentation is complete. It's a tasty brew!

I've used BierMuncher's Nierra Sevada and Ed Wort's Haus Pale Ale recipes as bases in the past (although I prefer BM's as more loyal to the "Pacific" taste). Check them out if you haven't yet!
On Deck: Master & Margarita RIS, Son of Bulgakov Stout
Primary: Kinger's Kölsch
Secondary: Punkin' Porter
Bottled: Alec's Ale, Alec's Ale X, Nut Very Good Brown Ale, Pliny the Elder Clone, Admiral Longshank's Oatmeal Stout
